ONE NK MOOR LANE, NORTH HYKEHAM, LINCOLN, Lincolnshire, LN6 9AX
- New Changing Pavilion (1)
- New 11v11 Floodlit 3G FTP (1)
NFFS outcome score
Existing facilities: leisure centre, six full size grass pitch equivalents and one full size 3G FTP.
Current users: 33 teams from Greenbank Junior FC. Site also currently used by 130-140 walking footballers and disability footballers from local care homes with young disabled adults.
Rationale: potential for a second full size 3G FTP on site and increased changing provision/community space to provide space for clubs accessing the site external to the main sports centre.
An area with high affiliated football demand, with clubs reporting issues with accessing 3G provision for training purposes and a need for more grass pitch provision.
At present the 3G FTP is at capacity due to being heavily used by a large junior club (Greenbank JFC). This is also the case on the grass pitches for match play and a 3G could increase the sites overall capacity. This club, along with others in the area also also wish to grow but lack of provision is a barrier.
As well as accomodating affiliated football, this site is duel use with North Kesteven Academy and Sir Robert Pattison Academy sits opposite. in addition, walking football takes place here with 130-140 participants per month.
One NK has just applied to be a Wildcats centre and has aspiration to expand its disability football offer.
