Derbyshire FA has extended its partnership with synthetic sports pitch maintenance specialists, Replay Maintenance, for a further three years.
The partnership will see all Derbyshire FA-based 3G Pitch owners, managers and operators benefit from free pitch inspections and reports, discounted specialist annual maintenance contracts, emergency callout service, in-house maintenance training, pitch repairs, infill top-ups, line marking, weed treatments and FA appeal works.
Derbyshire FA will also have access to Passport365 – an asset management tool developed by Replay to optimise operations, strategy and performance of sports and leisure facilities.
A key element of the partnership is the opportunity for the partners to design bespoke in-house training courses, run in conjunction with Replay Maintenance, as well as exploring individual CPD training options for facility staff.
Nick Harris, MD of Replay Maintenance, said: “We have enjoyed a positive working relationship with a number of county FAs over the last five years and in that time have shared new processes, advice and guidance to support those responsible for maintaining artificial surfaces.
“The growth of the partnership to once again include Derbyshire FA is testament to our dedication to raising awareness around, and the quality of, effective 3G pitch maintenance regimes. We look forward to supporting Derbyshire FA and sharing new developments with the grassroots clubs and organisations within its membership.”
Ricky Stevenson CEO of Derbyshire FA, added: “With the county’s stock of 3G pitches growing all the time, it’s crucial we help to ensure they’re being looked after effectively.
“We view our partnership with Replay Maintenance as a step in the right direction towards providing the best quality sporting venues in the country. We’re always keen to understand how we can develop and better the offer to our member clubs and associated organisations, Replay’s expert advice is invaluable.”
