The Slatter Group is thrilled to be announced as the new Official Pitch Partner for The Northern Premier League!
The announcement comes ahead of the Northern Premier League’s 2021/22 season, which will see 81 teams competing across the league’s four divisions.
Following a lengthy tender process, we’re delighted to have been selected by The Northern Premier League as their new Official Pitch Partner. The league recognises The Slatter Group’s breadth of experience in the football sector and our mutual desire to improve transparency and education for teams when it comes to all things pitches.
As part of the partnership, Northern Premier League Clubs will benefit from The Slatter Group’s 90+ years’ combined experience across our two companies, S&C Slatter and White Horse Contractors. Throughout the year, The Slatter Group will deliver roadshows and webinars, delivering comprehensive support on the design, construction, finance, and maintenance of football pitches. In addition to this, the league’s 81 clubs will benefit from personalised guidance in areas such as bid writing, business case preparation, finance packages and environmental sustainability.
Mark Harris, Chairman, Pitching In Northern Premier League, commented:
“The Slatter Group submitted a standout presentation as part of our tender process. In particular, we were impressed by their commitment to engaging with our clubs to help educate and share best practices in raising standards. The Slatter Group’s ability to provide essential consultancy to our clubs for grass, hybrid and artificial pitches means that informed choices can be made.”
We’re proud to have built a strong presence in English football already, at all stages of the football pyramid, working with grassroots clubs right through to elite premiership teams. S&C Slatter is the leading non-league supplier, with over 40% of clients achieving promotion following installation, such as Harrogate Town FC, Sutton United and Walton Casuals FC. Working exclusively with FIFA Preferred Turf Producers FieldTurf, we’re one of a few select suppliers to the Football Foundation AGP Framework 2020-2024, a scheme we have proudly been reselected for each cycle since its inception in 2010.
White Horse Contractors, established in 1957, has a decorated history in sports construction, delivering natural and hybrid turf pitches for clubs including Chelsea FC, Wimborne Town FC and Queens Park Rangers. We partner with the leading hybrid turf manufacturers GrassMaster.
