Hockey club appoints O'Brien Sports for new synthetic pitch
Leading sports pitch construction specialists, O'Brien Sports, has joined forces with the Official Facilities Partner of England Hockey, Notts Sports, to install a new synthetic turf hockey pitch for Burton Hockey Club.

The project will see O'Brien replace the existing Redgra surface at Shobnall Leisure Complex with a state-of-the-art VHAF Notts Sward Leisure synthetic turf hockey pitch. The works will also include the installation of a NottsPad XC shockpad, drainage, kerbs, fencing and floodlighting.

Established in 1899, Burton Hockey Club competes within the MRHA (Midlands Regional Hockey Association) and promotes 7 men's teams and 3 ladies' teams. The men's 1XI and 2XI play at the highest level, the Midlands Regional Hockey Association Premier Division, whereas the women's 1XI take part in the Midlands Region Hockey Women's League Division 1.

Steve Hillman, General Manager, O'Brien Sports, said: "This installation is very important to secure regional hockey at the synthetic grass roots level and we are very pleased that Burton Hockey Club has recognised our credentials when selecting a sports pitch partner."

O'Brien Sports has over 55 years' experience in sports pitch construction and is the first and only large civil engineering firm able to offer turnkey solutions for a range of sports facilities, delivering projects ranging from stadiums and arenas through to rugby, football and hockey pitches.

Recent projects have included the construction of a 3G football pitch at Worthing FC, a Lano 3G synthetic pitch at Westfield Academy, a sand dressed hockey pitch at Oswestry School, two natural turf pitches for Rugby Town Junior Football Club and preparation works for the replacement of Wasps' Ricoh Arena natural turf pitch.
