Potters boss opens local school’s new 4G facility…
GARY ROWETT has officially opened a new state-of-the-art 4G playing surface at a Stoke-on-Trent school.
The Potters boss visited St Thomas More Catholic Academy to cut the ribbon on the new facility, which has cost £900,000 to install.
Rowett spent time with local primary school children who were taking part in a tournament on the pitch, which replaced an ageing all-weather surface.
He said: “It’s fantastic that the youngsters have access to a 4G playing surface that can be used all year round. I’m told the old pitch was supposedly all-weather but was unusable when it rained - they won’t have any issues like that with the new facility.”
Rowett joined the school’s head teacher Mark Rayner in performing the official opening of the new playing surface.
