Palmers Field Unveiled: PST Sport Delivers State-of-the-Art Artificial Turf Floodlit Pitch at Humberston Academy

Artificial turf pitch at Humberston Academy

PST Sport’s new floodlit artificial turf pitch at Humberston Academy, Grimsby, has been named Palmers Field to honour the school’s longest-serving English teacher, Helen Palmer. This state-of-the-art facility sets a new standard for sports excellence in North East Lincolnshire.

Humberston Academy, renowned for its outstanding academic and sports programs, has now added Palmers Field to its exceptional array of sports facilities. The PST Sport team delivered a full-size 7,400 sq/m pitch successfully tested to FIFA Quality standards. The project encompassed a comprehensive scope, including full groundworks, fencing, netting, and floodlights.

PST Sport’s Managing Director, Colin Teahon expressed immense pride, stating, “We are incredibly proud to deliver this world-class facility to Humberston Academy. The new pitch will undoubtedly enhance the school’s curriculum delivery and provide elite athletes with an optimal performance platform. We’re excited about the positive impact it will have on the local community in Grimsby.”

The state-of-the-art 3G floodlit pitch at Humberston Academy, Grimsby, will serve students and the local community

Artificial turf pitch at Humberston AcademyA review of the academy’s sports facilities and those of the immediate area had revealed them to be in need of improvement for some time, with the nearest 3G football pitch located on the other side of town. In 2019, the FA completed a survey and identified the academy as a strong location for a floodlit 3G build. With the support of the Football Foundation, the UK’s largest sports charity funded by the Premier League, The Football Association, and the Government through Sport England, the project broke ground last summer.

The surface, Triplex 45, laid over shock pad, consists of three different shaped yarns, each with its own specific purpose. One for durability, one for softness and one for resilience. This unique product combines these three attributes to create a truly cutting-edge playing surface.

Already making waves in the community, Humberston Academy has strengthened its ties with local organisations by opening its doors to football teams in the area. Limited slots for pitch hire are available, and interested parties can contact the school office for booking information.

As PST Sport celebrates another successful project, the commitment to elevating sports infrastructure and delivering world-class facilities remains steadfast. With the local community in Grimsby embracing the benefits of the new artificial turf pitch at Humberston Academy, PST Sport looks forward to contributing to the growth and advancement of sports across the UK and Ireland.
