Due to the prolonged period of hot and dry weather, the back pitches on Terry’s Field will be closed until further notice.
Officials from both Redditch United and the council have been in regular contact after a series of cracks started to emerge, and it has now been agreed by both parties that the grass pitches cannot be used for either match or training purposes.
Redditch United are committed to bringing the pitches up to a suitable standard, and club officials are in discussions with members from the county and national Football Association, as well as the Football Foundation and council, regarding a long-term solution.
The club apologies for any inconvenience and urges individuals to contact the club if they have any questions regarding the statement above.
