Use of rugby pitch at SPRINGHEAD FC
If you are scheduled to play your match on the pitch at Springhead FC it is imperative that you follow the following procedure.
Springhead FC have been good enough to let us put a pitch on their ground and we MUST RESPECT their requirements when we use it or we will no longer have access to the pitch. We have invested £500 so far by putting up posts and marking it out. Please ensure that you follow these procedures.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE ANY PLAYERS ALLOWED TO WARM UP ON THE FOOTBALL PITCHES, EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT IN USE. PLAYERS CAN HOWEVER WARM UP BEHIND THE FOOTBALL GOAL POSTS
- Access to the pitches must be via Springhead Lane and NOT through the car park of Summerbridge Doors; you can access the car park to retrieve balls.
- All SPECTATORS MUST stand on the touchline nearest the road. This has to be roped off before the game.
- Only SUBSTITUTES and COACHES can stand on the touchline next to the football pitches, however please be respectful if there is a game of football on and make sure that no substitutes “wander” onto the football pitch. This is their facility and we don’t want any complaints from their players or visiting teams.
- Before the match conduct a full risk assessment of the playing surface for dog mess and any foreign objects that could cause a risk to player safety.
- Take a bin liner with you and always CLEAN UP after you leave, this includes empty bottles and rubbish / tape etc
- If you are the last game played bring the post protectors and flags and pitch barrier back to the containers.
If any coach or manager allows either their players or opposition to warm up on the football pitches it will result in that team no longer having access to use the pitch again and could result in Springhead FC not allowing us the continued use of the pitch. We have a very good relationship with Springhead FC and we will not tolerate abuse of their facilities
Remember as Coach or Team Manager you are responsible for not only your team but te visiting team and their spectators
