Having constructed the original sand-filled synthetic pitch for Newall Green High School in Wythenshawe, Blakedown were later asked back to resurface to a state-of-the-art 3G pitch.
The original facility was installed with an eight column floodlighting scheme, 5m high weldmesh perimeter fencing, 10m extended ball-capture fencing on the housing-side, and a spectator mound formed using earth taken from the cut-and-fill and levelling operation as part of the build.
The sports turf selected for resurfacing the facility was Edel's Superblade Duo 40 with sports lines in-laid for full-size football and hockey with three cross-play 7-a-side football pitches. Turf-covered timber kickboards were also installed around the perimeter of the playing surface.
