Newcastle United Player Attends 3G Pitch Open Day at Local Community Centre

16th February 2018

On 15th February the STM team revisited West Moor Community Centre, who we recently completed their 3G pitch for and what a fantastic day we had!

This week we were sent some lovely comments over and were even invited up to see everyone’s reaction to the football pitch.

The team were invited by the committee to watch as the children from the local football team, parents and the community could all get together and open the new football pitch, and there was even a surprise visit from a Newcastle player too!

Newcastle United First Team Defender Chancel Mbemba represented Newcastle United FC as he cut the ribbon and welcomed everyone onto the new pitch.

The committee were very pleased with their new pitch and were impressed with our installation.

Alex from STM commented, “It is great to see the finished result of the pitch, but when we actually see people using it and hearing the wonderful comments we know that what we have done will make a huge difference to the local community. We would like to thank the committee for inviting us to the open day and making us feel so welcome on the day. We hope to visit again in the near future!”
