Replay Maintenance, the leading provider of maintenance for synthetic surfaces, has announced their partnership with the eight County Football Associations (CFAs) across the East and East Midlands region. Initially established in 2013, the partnership has been extended from five to eight CFAs due to the success of the programme for both Replay and grassroots football. The partnership will now cover the counties of; Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Northamptonshire.
All facilities within the eight CFAs will have access to information, expert advice and a portal within which the facility, Replay and the respective County FA can plan and implement programmes for the care and maintenance of the facility. From grounds professional training through to budgets and forecasts, the partnership aims to deliver training and advice on all aspects of managing and maintaining an artificial sports surface.
Commenting on the agreement, Director of Replay Maintenance Garry Martin said, “We have enjoyed a positive working relationship with the CFAs across the East Midlands region for the last 6 years and in that time we have successfully shared new processes, advice and guidance to support those responsible for maintaining an artificial surface. We are extremely proud to now be associated with the eight CFAs across the East and East Midlands region and look forward to continuing to deliver value to the grassroots game”
Commenting on the agreement, The FA’s Regional Manager Matt Bartle said, “For the past six years grassroots facilities across the East Midlands region have benefited greatly from the partnership with Replay Maintenance, with this in mind the natural step was to extend the partnership in to the East. I would like to place on record my thanks to Garry and the team at Replay for their continued professionalism and to the eight CFAs across the region for embracing this exciting partnership that will continue to benefit the grassroots game”
