Larges Lane Development Update 11th November 2016
As recently reported in the local press and other media our pitch has been completed at Larges Lane and our thanks go to Velocity Sports for an excellent job in creating a future proof playing facility for everyone associated with Bracknell Town Football Club. As expected we will see football return to “The Lane” on 17th November as our U21’s, Ladies, Allied & Youth Team all start to get their first taste of the new playing facilities. The playing surface will have its FIFA accreditation next week and we do not expect any issues in receiving the necessary approvals.
However, in accordance FA guidelines the ground must also pass a grading inspection and this covers all aspects of the facilities at Larges Lane including the changing facilities, stand, fencing etc. Whilst we are working around the clock to complete all aspects of Phase 1 the FA grading inspection cannot take place until the end of November. This will result in us having to play our home matches at Sandhurst Town until our return to “The Lane” on 6th December in a mouthwatering tie against our neighbours Binfield FC.
Whilst this minor delay is disappointing it is only a couple of weeks in what will probably be the best facilities in the local area for many years in to the future.
