Pitch Access:
Teams have access to the pitch from 1:30pm to warm up with kick off at the usual time of 2pm.

Pitch Type:
Outdoor 3G: With it being a 3G pitch, can you make sure no players are wearing blades or metal studs please. Any players with such boots will NOT be permitted to play. Plastic or round rubber studs are fine to play in.

Fans/Spectators: (Laisteridge Lane Pitch)
We have been advised by the Yorkshire Amateur League (YAL), as per minimum standards for the supreme division we are not permitted to allow fans and spectators within the fenced area of the pitch. This is to ensure players have a clear run off area surrounding the pitch. Can we ask all fans and spectators to remain outside of the fence. Only staff with club clothing will be allowed on to the pitch.

Our pitch landlord has also dictated that no fans or spectators are allowed on to the pitch for all teams. This is due to damage caused to the pitch and the goals by fans in recent seasons.

There is limited parking available next to the pitch but there are four overflow car parks in the vicinity. All parking is free in these car parks. Please make sure all valuables are not left visible in the vehicles.

Changing Rooms\Hospitality Facilities:
We have changing rooms available for away teams as well as for match officials. Unfortunately we do not have facilities to host hospitality.
