0 Improve local football pitches

Enthusiasts from the Wyre Forest District are being invited to take part in a competition aimed at improving local football pitches.

Petrol lawn mower engine manufacturer Briggs and Stratton has launched the 'Pitch To Win' competition with weekendwonders. co.uk, offering a football team the chance to win a free pitch make-over worth up to £4,000.

Other prizes the winning team will receive include a ride-on lawnmower worth £3,000 and a cheque for £1,000. Two runners-up will bag cash prizes of £1,000 and £500 for team expenses.

The competition is open to anyone involved with a non-professional under 18s football club.

Entrants must explain why their pitch deserves a make-over, provide accompanying photographs and information about their team.

Ian Small, business development manager for Briggs and Stratton, said: "Everyone knows how much sport plays an important part in young people's lives - it combines healthy competition, fun and fitness."

A panel of judges, including groundsmen from two professional football clubs, will choose the winning pitches.

For more details, visit pitch towin.org.uk or call 01332 258335.

It runs until Friday, March 27.
