Please ensure that the correct footwear is used and that the guidelines for the all weather pitch are followed (see below).
The permitted footwear for the all-weather pitch and training area is boots with moulded rubber studs or rubber / steel screw-in studs (see examples below)
All persons entering the pitch enclosure must wear appropriate footwear for safety and to avoid damaging the synthetic grass.
Blade boots, runners and boots with worn studs are all forbidden as they will damage the synthetic grass. (see examples below)
Players, coaches, managers and any other persons involved in the game or training should comply with the appropriate footwear and ensure everyone in their group is compliant.
Parents and spectators should remain outside the pitch enclosure where footpaths and a concourse has been provided.
Boots and attire should be clean of all mud or other dirt.
The blue run-off area is a safety zone for players. It is not for spectators and must be maintained to the same standard as the pitch. The same footwear applies to all blue run-off areas.
Team coaches and referees are responsible for footwear of all players involved in their sessions.
Concussion Is a hot topic at the moment. Check out the videos at the link below:
