How Worthing FC's pitch might look with a 3G artificial surface

WORTHING Football Club are anticipating receiving the go-ahead to install a 3G surface at Woodside Road this week.

The consultation period to get planning permission ended earlier this week and Rebels believe there were no new objections and hope to begin installing the artificial surface later this month.

Worthing business develop-
ment director Julian Church said: “It looks like we have got it and we’re hoping to get it in place for next season.

“We’ve got a board meeting on Thursday (tonight) when we will talk about the finance, which we’ve got two or three options for.

“We’ve got to run the club as a business and it’s important that this is a business and a commercial decision.”

Rebels will look to begin work on installing the 3G surface after the supporters’ six-a-side tournament on May 17. The pitch might not be ready for the start of the Ryman League South Division season in August, so Worthing may ask the league to play the first couple of games away from home.
