SWCFC 3G AGP Project

Saffron Walden Community FC (SWCFC) are very excited about our recently agreed partnership with Saffron Walden County High School (SWCHS). The partners have agreed to deliver a brand new high quality, 3G Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP) on the south-west side of the SWCHS site. The proposed new 3G pitch will be approved to FIFA, EUFA and FA standards, an example layout is shown in the images below. We expect to apply for planning permission in March 2019 and if all goes well the AGP should be ready to use in Q1/2020.

Martin Johnson, SWCFC Chairman said "Our club is growing every month and our young players need and deserve good facilities. Week in week out we travel to away matches and see fantastic 3G football pitches. Getting this quality of facility in Saffron Walden itself is long overdue. The County High School is committed to the scheme, and the Essex FA is supporting us, subject to gaining the local support we need. Together we can deliver a very significant financial investment in our town. So many volunteers contribute brilliantly to the club – both on the coaching and on the administration side. This new facility will enable us to expand and improve on that amazing work. Delivering a 3G will also allow us to expand into new areas like disability football."

Polly Lankester, SWCHS Associate Head Teacher said "SWCHS is really excited to be part of this project, which will deliver a great new facility and bring huge benefits to people across Saffron Walden and the wider Uttlesford District. The Board of Governors are very much behind this 3G scheme, and we hope to deliver it as soon as possible, working with SWCFC, the local authorities and the FA"

Matt Clare, Chairman of Saffron Walden PSG (Girls’ club) and SWCFC Vice-Chairman said "As well as being a huge asset to the community, this exciting 3G Artificial Grass Pitch plan will really help us develop our provision for girls’ football in the town, building on the big strides we have taken since Saffron Walden PSG was formed. It will also allow us to develop disability football – something I have personally been working on with the Essex FA on for some time, and which they are very positive about us doing. We can’t take this forward effectively without delivering this new 3G facility"

Derek Jones, Leader of Saffron Walden Organisations for Sport and Chair of WaldenTRI and Walden Track and Field said "A 3G facility will bring an exciting new dimension to the town’s sporting capability and SWCFC should be congratulated on their resilience in making this happen. The local sports clubs have been very proactive in recent years, working together in attempting to deliver modern high quality sports facilities for the town and surrounding area. There is still much to be done and positive discussions are regularly underway with both SWTC and UDC"
