While we’re always thrilled to see matches taking place on one of the eleven 3G Stadia Pitches we have delivered to non-league football clubs, this weekend marks a particularly exciting fixture – as two of our most recent clients face off against one another.
Tomorrow, Saturday 17th October, Havant & Waterlooville FC take on Billericay Town FC at New Lodge, where S&C Slatter recently completed a 3G Stadia Conversion and 3G Community Pitch construction.
With the 3G Stadia conversion at New Lodge handed over in August, you might think the team at Billericay have an advantage over Havant & Waterlooville, having had 2 extra months to train and play on their new pitch, where The Hawk’s handover took place just last week.
The Hawks are no strangers to 3G however, with S&C Slatter returning customer Paul Doswell managing the team and spearheading The Hawks’ new pitch, following the success of the 3G Pitch at his former team Sutton United. Following our construction ahead of the U’s league-winning season in 2015 the team, under Doswell’s leadership, reaped the rewards on and off the pitch in the years that followed.
While we believe it’s too close to call, there’s no doubt the fixture will be an exciting match for both sides at the Blue’s recently transformed home ground at New Lodge. We could well argue that both teams are already winners with their new FIFA Quality Pro stadia, each benefitting from the very latest 3G artificial turf technology from S&C Slatter and our exclusive partners FieldTurf, FIFA Preferred turf producers.
In line with government guidelines, tomorrow’s match will take place behind closed doors, with fans able to buy tickets through Billericay Town’s website as the home team here. As fans of both The Blues and The Hawks, we’ll perhaps be the only ones rooting for a draw!
S&C Slatter wish all the best to both teams tomorrow, and for a successful season ahead.
