The Opening:

On Friday 25th of September 2009 the brand new 3rd Generation synthetic grass pitch was officially opened at Birchwood Community High School; by Andy Gatcliffe; the Chief Executive of Super League team and recent Challenge Cup Winners Warrington Wolves.

The ceremony marked the culmination of an excellent partnership between Thornton Sports and the school; with Thornton Sports providing assistance from the initial planning stage including providing detailed AutoCAD design drawings.

The Surface:

The chosen surface was Thornton Sport's "SoccerTurf 40M" 3rd Generation sand/rubber filled synthetic grass which satisfies both F.A. and F.I.H. performance requirements. Furthermore; being manufactured in the UK, this aided in the reduction of the schools carbon footprint.

The Response:

The new surface is already making a major impact. Ralph Johnson; Business Manager at the school commented; "the feedback we have had from our learners and community users has been very positive with everyone raving over the fabulous surface".

During the opening ceremony the Head Teacher; Ms. Anne Bright made a special reference to Thornton Sport's construction works being both on-time and within budget.

The new synthetic pitch marks an exciting time for the school and also another successful "SoccerTurf 40M" installation for Thornton Sports.
