Announcement- New home for Standish Panthers JFC

Announcement – WSC (Wigan Cricket Club)

It is with great pleasure that we can announce that we have fully agreed to move Standish Panthers JFC to WSC officially from 1st June 2018.
Over the last year or so we have worked with WSC to find common ground in relation to club costs , arrangements, facilities, training needs and more importantly moving our club as a whole.
We can now confirm the following

• All age groups from U7s through to U16s will play at WSC
• All training ( possibly excluding U7s & U8s) will take place at WSC/Deanery Astro turf which will be resurfaced for training and friendly matches over the next couple of months
• Current cricket pitch has already had new drainage installed and brought up to spec to house football in winter and Cricket in the summer
• New pitches will be marked out for 11v11, 9v9, 7v7 and 5v5 & warm up area to be created
• Bar facilities and function room open including toilets
• Storage for nets, poles, corner flags, mini goals
• New 24×8 and 21×8 metal goals will be purchased by the club
• Changing rooms available for selected matches ( normally LFA Games)
• Car Parking

It’s a very exciting time, there will be teething problems and there are some restrictions that we will update everybody on before we start playing there in September but im sure you will agree when you see the surfaces the players will play on that it’s been worth the last 14 months or so
More information will follow as we need to tie down training nights (all slots are 6-7) but I would like to thank the committee for all their hard work and Angela Prole for leading the move, we also need to recognise Mike Gregory and Steve Hollinshead as had they not started a conversation with Judith at WSC about our club then none of this would have probably of happened.

I would like to thank you all for your support and dedication to Standish Panthers JFC and look forward to continuing our growth over the forthcoming years.
