NFFS outcome score
Exiting facilities: a leisure centre with one full size adult football pitch Changing provision located within the leisure centre.
Current users: three adult teams from three clubs; Pinchbeck United (juniors/ladies), Spalding Town FC and Spalding United FC. In addition, due to being a leisure centre with a range of sports facilities has a variety of users from the community. Grass pitch is also used for informal play by local young people.
Rationale: a leisure centre with potential for a full size 3G FTP. This site is in a central location, with high population density (with further significant housing growth due) and the Local Authority has aspirations to provide more, better quality facilities to create a community sporting hub. There is high football demand within Spalding and nearby Pinchbeck, with a total of 45 affiliated teams across the the two areas. This site would also require improvements to the changing facilities servicing the new 3G FTP.
