3rd Generation Pitch Hire

In July 2014 an historic moment arrived for Newtown Football Club and the surrounding community with the completion of a 3rd Generation artificial pitch at

Latham Park.

This exciting new development will further enhance the excellent facilities at Latham Park with the potential for year-round use. In addition, the facility will help develop a ‘hub’ for local community activity and act as a great catalyst for collaboration with community, partners and potential investors; and deliver wider economic regeneration, social inclusion and health benefits for the community.

The only condition is that the correct footwear is used - moulded studs or astroturf trainers are OK, whilst metal studs or blades are definitely OUT.

The 'next generation' or 'Third Generation' artificial grass surfaces have a rubber crumb and sand infill for extra performance. This type of surface utilises longer fibres (up to 65mm, Newtown AFC have 40mm conducive to football) to ensure it can hold both rubber and sand infill the levels of which can be adjusted to produce optimum playing characteristics. These are generally regarded as being about as safe to play on as a typical natural grass surface, perhaps even safer in cold conditions.

Our 3G pitch can be hired (subject to availability) for recreational & training use, for matches large or small sided, for delivery of practical coaching / fitness sessions, for events associated with sporting activities (subject to confirmation). All enquiries are welcome from recreational to corporate use.
