Having played their football at Bracknell Town’s Larges Lane ground while refurbishment work at Bottom Meadow off Yorktown Road takes place, Sandhurst Town will soon have a shiny, new home ground to return to.

The redevelopment involves replacing the grass pitch with a 3G artificial surface, adding new fences and enclosures around the side of the pitch, installing a 120-seater spectator stand and relocating the existing stand, adding a new turnstile entrance and team shelters, replacing the floodlight system and more.

Bracknell News:

Having a 3G pitch will mean “increased usage” of the site for the Fizzers many youth teams and adult team.

STFC bosses have been waiting for a decision from Bracknell Forest Council for almost a year now, but the approval of the proposal was finally confirmed yesterday (Friday, November 27).
