Beverley Town Football Club will return to Norwood following what has been a significant investment in their facilities.
Town boss Rich Jagger hopes that with the club returning to its spiritual home that the supporters too will return.
Speaking about the project, Jagger said;
“The pitch was in dire need of improvement with massive variations in the levels of the pitch due to the field reverting to the rig and furrow effect of farming. This made playing football and also cricket very difficult.”
“We worked with Chappelow to undertake the works and in August 2017 relaid the pitch and installed drainage. Despite the wet winter and dry summer, Chappelow managed to produce a pitch that has recovered well and now looks fantastic in preparation for our first game.”
“The club is also pleased to confirm that we have just received planning permission for a stand. A 54 seater covered stand it will be dedicated to Ivan Usher, a well known PE teacher and gym owner. His son Greg and wife Hilary have worked tirelessly to raise money to fund the stand. As a club, we hope to have in place in the next few months.”
Beverley Town Look To Continue With Improvement Projects
“The club is hopeful to improve further and develop a facility that is able to be used in the next step up in the football league pyramid. To achieve this further funding and improvements, significantly floodlights, would be required.”
“It has been a difficult period for the players and supporters of the club to attend home games which were played at Hutton Cranswick who showed great hospitality to the club. I now hope that supporters will return to follow the club again.”
