Oldland Abbotonians FC will unveil their upgraded Castle Road ground, ahead of their home fixture vs. Chard Town, on Saturday 11 March 2017 at 1.15pm.
Through this project, Oldland Abbotonians FC have built a new 50-seater stand, two additional dugouts, pitch perimeter fencing, storage containers, an admission kiosk, CCTV provision, and further car park improvements.
Thanks to the works, the West Country club, who play in the Western League Division One, can now provide a safe and accessible home for all players, officials and supporters. The new facilities will benefit many in the local area, including nearly three hundred of the club’s affiliated youth players.
The project was made possible thanks to a £49,873 grant from the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), the largest funders of non-league football in the country.
Funded with £5.2m each year from the Premier League, the FSIF is the country's largest provider of grants towards projects that help improve the comfort and safety of lower league football grounds in both the professional and amateur game. These improvements range from new football stands and turnstiles to floodlighting and improved provision for disabled supporters.
