Groundsman Cuts Grass

Grass Pitch Improvement


Middlesex FA are working with The FA and Grounds Management Association (GMA) to improve the quality grass pitches locally through the FA’s Pitch Improvement Programme (PIP).

maintaining their grass pitches and improving playing surfaces.


As part of the grass Pitch Improvement Programme, Middlesex FA is offering:

  • Advice on how to improve and maintain pitches
  • Access to and support in applying for Football Foundation grant funding
  • Support from Football Foundation technical advisors for facility development
  • Support from Middlesex FA’s Head of Participation & Development
  • Free access to pitch maintenance training, provided by the Regional Pitch Advisor

All this support is available for a small cost:

2. Local Authority Partner - £75

3. Club/Other Organisation - £100
