Type of installation: Natural turf pitch construction and renovation of training ground

Location: Southampton Football Club, Southampton

Kestrel were contracted to carry out construction work at Southampton FC’s Marchwood Training Ground, performing major improvements to 6 academy football pitches and the main first team training pitch.


The football pitches were stripped off with a bulldozer, new sand was added to the existing topsoil before the pitches were re-levelled.


Sand slitting was then installed prior to the playing surface being seeded.


Several training grids were constructed and a sub-base prepared for the installation of a new 3rd generation artificial grass surface.

Scope of works:


  • Football training pitch construction including stadium specification full size football pitches with irrigation.
  • Training and academy football pitches.
  • Stadium pitch renovation works.
  • 3rd Generation artificial grass training grids.
  • Turfing and general maintenance at St Mary’s Stadium.

“Kestrel came in and superseded our expectations, the quality of the pitches are first class, but as well as that they are easy to communicate with and work at a good pace”.
