The Guernsey County FA can provide advice and guidance on improving your pitch.
The County run a Pitch Improvement Programme where you can book a visit with an experienced grounds man to assess the current condition of your pitch and maintenance equipment and offer suggestions for improvement. Please click here for more information on the pitch improvement programme.
Funding is also available through the Football Foundation Build the Game scheme to purchase ground maintenance equipment
If your pitch needs new drainage you will need to have an independent agronomists report done to assess the extent of works needed and the costs involved. For contacts of organisations that can undertake this report please contact Gary Roberts.
Guidance on improving grass pitches is detailed on the Football Foundation Data Sheets (see downloads)
Clubs playing at Step 7 and above can access funding through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund in order to satisfy their ground grading requirements.
There is no funding for general pitch maintenance works.
Pitch & Goalpost dimensions
The FA have produced a Guide to Pitch and goalpost dimensions, which explains the various sizes of goalposts recommended and pitch markings for all formats of the game (see downloads)
