New App Developed to Assist Groundskeepers

Groundskeepers from around Lancashire can now showcase their work on The Football Foundation's new app

The Football Foundation has recently introduced the new Football Foundation Groundskeeping Community and App.

This exciting initiative is the first of several support tools to help you meet the grass pitch improvement targets and the site has been developed in partnership with the FA and Institute of Groundskeepers to support volunteers and qualified groundskeepers to maintain pitches.

This is a collaborative space that will:
• build knowledge and understanding on key operations of pitch maintenance throughout the year
• connect with fellow groundskeepers and share experiences
• seek expert advice on getting the most from the pitches groundskeepers manage

Throughout the football season, the FA will be posting content such as videos and news articles related to pitch improvement. They will then ask for local content to be shared, promoting the work that Lancashire FA is delivering.

The link below will allow you to access the site free of charge and has a welcome message from Karl Standley, Head Groundsman at Wembley Stadium. Once registered, the Hive Learning app for iOS or Android is the easiest way to access the community on the go.
