NFFS outcome score
Existing facilities: five full size pitch equivalents, small sided (7v7) 3G FTP, full size sand filled AGP (which is key for hockey in the area) and changing facilities. This site connects to two other football sites; Charles Le Quelenec Park (Park Tigers JFC) and the Co-Op Sports Ground, with three and five full size pitch equivalents respectively. The site is also adjacent to to the Pods leisure centre.
Current users: 25 teams from two clubs; Appleby Frodingham JFC and Redbourn F.C. Site also accessed by John Leggott College and North Lindsey College, as well as Scunthorpe United Community Trust. The Trust deliver the On Target initiative here on behalf of the Council. Additionally, the current civic centre is soon to be converted into a university campus in links with North Lindsey College.
Rationale: this site should be considered for full size 3G FTP provision. This site may also have potential to become a multi 3G FTP site, as long as the AGP is protected for hockey use. This a key site for football with both affiliated and unaffiliated football activity, reaching out a wide range of users within varying communities. Development of these pitches needs to be considered in line with the potential 3G FTP development at North Lindsey College.
There is also a need to consider improvements to the grass pitch provision and refurbishments to the changing facilities to provide an all round football hub site offer. There is also potential for Co-Op Sports Ground to be included as part of a PIP to the site.
