Bury set to be left behind by rival towns in 3G pitch war

Bury St Edmunds is set to be left behind by two rival towns in the race to install full-size 3G artificial football pitches.

AFC Sudbury and Haverhill Community Sports Association have both announced their intention to build artificial surfaces in their towns.

Meanwhile, St Edmundsbury Council is undertaking a 10-month review into the need for 3G pitches in the Bury area after the collapse of the Moreton Hall Football Project in November.

A council spokesman said all pitch facilities across St Edmundsbury and Forest Heath were being reviewed to consider ‘how fit for purpose’ they are and added: “We are aware of the ambitions of other organisations to deliver 3G pitches, and actively encourage this. The current schedule is for a draft strategy to go before councillors for considerations in the early autumn.”

The 3G pitches at Bury Rugby Club and County Upper School are not full-pitch size.
