Type of installation: New natural pitch construction x 2
Location: Totton AFC
Housebuilder Linden Homes made Totton FC an offer they couldn’t refuse which resulted in a new ground for two of the local teams. Both Totton and Totton AFC had new pitches built on the same site so this is possibly the closest thing you can get to local rivalries.
Sandwiched in the middle between the pitches is a brand new clubhouse and artificial grass training facility.
Not only did the club have a new pitch but it also featured on TV when Totton were drawn to play against Bristol Rovers in trhe FA Cup. The television pundits were kind in there compliments not just of the facilities, but also the pitch surface.
Kestrels scope of works was to strip site topsoil, re grade formation .and re spread the topsoil. Primary drainage was then installed from the top down followed by sand amelioration and secondary drainage. A full pop up irrigation system was installed in each pitch. Kestrel grew the pitches in till handover.
