Thornton Sports client wins top sports award

Congratulations to Alderley Edge Cricket Club who have been awarded the coveted Hockey Club of the Season award by the England Hockey Board. Coinciding with the start of the construction process for the club's new full-size hockey pitch being built by Thornton Sports, these are certainly exciting times for the club!

The England Hockey Board Awards Review Panel commented that the club's fundraising activity for the new pitch had really impressed them, as had the club's commitment to junior coaching and community participation initiatives. The club works hard to develop an increasing number of participation opportunities for cricket, hockey, tennis and squash and provides a fantastic thriving environment for people to enjoy sports. Their new pitch, surfaced with our in-house UK manufactured Premier 10 FIH approved hockey surface, will be an example of this ongoing commitment. Nick Rudgard, President of Alderley Edge Hockey Club comments,

"It's taken a long time to get to this point and we are delighted that work has finally started. The new pitch should give us more opportunities to provide hockey for all".
