Richard Carr, chairman of Thame Football Partnership, has said “In what are clearly challenging times for everyone I am extremely pleased to be able to bring some positive news by announcing that we finally have the go ahead for our new floodlit 3G training pitch and work will commence next Tuesday, 24th November.
The partnership owes a huge debt of thanks to all those who made this possible and, in particular Thame Town Council who have backed us all the way together with, of course, the Football Foundation. It is quite ironic to be making this announcement on the same day as the Football Foundation announce the results of their “Local Football Facility Plan” as we are one of the featured sites.
This facility will offer a huge benefit not only to Thame, but the local community as a whole as many partner clubs will also benefit from its use.
Allowing for the Christmas break the 16 week build schedule means a likely completion date of the end of March 2021″
