Acland Burghley net
Acland Burghley is a great pitch in Tuffnell Park. I host the match frequently and it attracts many returning players. We could probably host a second match during the week and still keep it fully booked.
However, the pitch is on the corner of the school; surrounded by roads and the fences are not very high. Often the ball will fly out onto the street and it takes a good 5 minutes to get it back which ruins the flow of the game. Also there is no easily accessible gate to the street with which we can get the ball back.
It needs a net placed behind the goal or on top of the pitch in order to avoid this happening.
I am sure the school and residents would be interested in this idea as it must happen to them as well and the residents wouldn't enjoy the ball hitting their building or their cars.
All the best team - keep up the good work!
We will pass on the request to the venue management.
Also there is no extra availability at the venue for the moment.
Great suggestion. I am surprised the neighbours haven't complained yet.
