Tipton Town Ladies FC, who are trying to make their way for the first time in the Premier Division of the Birmingham County League, are facing another hurdle as Tipton Sports Academy pitch is closed for business again.
Tipton faced the same problem at the beginning of their first season when the pitch subsided. The following season after some repair work, which was far from perfect with entrenched goalmouths being barely playable, meant the end of the second season required a further repair job. Unfortunately this was performed too late and Tipton were unable to fulfil some early home fixtures. Now the club has been hit with another stay from their home pitch and, with very few local facilities with the compulsory changing rooms available, the club may be forced into not playing any matches locally.
Club Website, who has championed Tipton Town Ladies through its LSPL campaign, recently visited other local clubs with similar issues in an attempt to bring the bigger picture to light and with fees in excess of £80 to hire, council run park pitches are beyond some financially struggling clubs reach.
Tipton manager Faye Harrison commented: "Tipton Town men and West Bromwich Albion Ladies F.C have priority and can afford the fees to hire the main pitch at Tipton Sports Academy. It needs a secondary pitch for the smaller clubs to be able to compete. Without these smaller clubs, the future of player development hangs in the balance."
