This will enable the club to maintain our own pitches and enhance to make our facility a superb venue for all round year sports in conjunction with the Moss Bank Community Sports Club. Over the coming months the club will be in communication over suppliers and will start the journey to a better facility for our community.

 

Cafe

Our kitchen staff at Moss Bank JFC are there every Saturday morning rain or shine to feed and water all our members and also opposing teams, parents, children, parents and even our club dogs Mossy and Boris Banksy.
Collette, Georgia and Juliet deserve a medal for the effort and contribution they give to our club each week, training nights also to run our successful kitchen. Behind the scenes Collette and Marcus will weekly shop to make sure that the kitchen is amply supplied with all the food, drinks and confectionary that we all take for granted.
We are very reasonably priced and they produce a heart-warming brew and also a tasty “bacon or sausage barm”. The café is open to all the public and we regularly get people just coming for a “brew and bacon barm”.

Pitch Maintenance

By | Moss Bank JFC | No Comments

From June onwards straight after the Moss Bank JFC Presentation the club got to work on the Pitch Maintenance programme highlighted in their pitch report from The FA Association and Lancashire FA.
Armed with club volunteers Marcus Howarth, John Gaffney, Andrew Kearney, Gary Russell, Mike Wilcox and Mike McGuiness the work began. The first job was to level the “hump” that had built up over the years in the 11 v 11 pitch on the Pavilion. Over 25 tons of soil and sand mixed was removed to Rotavator then level and redress with soil and sand sports mix then seeded. This was then watered and watered regularly throughout the dry spell. We then proceeded to Rotavator and top up area of the 10 acre site that needed filling up with sports soil and reseeding.
The project took 3 days in total, over 60 hours of volunteer work and 20 ton of sports soil and sand mix was used along with 2 100kg bag of sports seed. We are now seeing the results of the project and the pitch maintenance plan goes on with a new investment of a tractor, gang-mower accessories, verti-draining accessories and slitter accessories. The plan in the future is that our drainage becomes better and thus the grass is allowed to grow and no waterlogged pitches. Further planning is for a 4G AstroTurf in the Heaton Cricket Club corner with floodlights and to maintain inside of Moss Bank Park to develop more pitch space and other sports space. As well as football we maintain and have other sports attached to the site with over 6 rounder’s teams playing on The Pavilion along with 3 cricket teams throughout the summer.
This is an integral part of the vision for the Moss Bank Community Sports Club which will incorporate the full use of the land with other sports. Major plans include our Moss Bank Summer Sports Camp run throughout the summer 6 weeks holiday. As well as the pitch maintenance we are seeing further developments in the clubhouse area with a new kitchen, new ceiling area and tiled toilet area. These are still in their early phases and there will be more refurbishment throughout the clubhouse with up to date changing room facilities and youth club. Again without volunteers this work would not be done so thanks to those who have helped over the summer months.
