Finishing touches

As we count down to Monday’s pre-season friendly with Derry City at Solitude, continues a mini-series chronicling the installation of our new pitch.

Having commenced by reflecting on how vital the synthetic turf was in helping the Club support our local community before examining the stats behind the surface, the trophy success that Cliftonville enjoyed on the artificial grass and the laying of the new pitch, today we’re looking at the finishing touches applied prior to last month’s opening home friendly with Ards.

Conducted by McAvoy Construction (NI) Ltd, the works ensured the surface – a Domo VarioSlide S Pro 50/15 FIFA Pro pitch – was in perfect condition for both our Men and Ladies teams’ respective returns home as the 2021/22 Danske Bank Premiership campaign moves within sight.
