Following the news that Launceston College have started work on their new third generation (3G) artificial grass pitch (AGP), the college and local clubs are delighted at the new opportunities the pitch will create within grassroots sport for the community.

This is being made possible thanks to a £487,117 grant from the Premier League, The FA and Government's Football Foundation.
The grant has enabled Launceston College to begin work on their new 3G sporting facility. This replaces their existing redgra pitch, which is now old and unfit for purpose both at the college and within the local community.
Launceston College will use the pitch for various lessons during the day as well as for sports teams and competitive matches. Partner clubs Launceston FC and Southgate Colts will also benefit from the facilities once complete. The college hopes to make the facility available to a full range of clubs in the local community with a booking system already in place. Although initially a football pitch, the college is interested in exploring further possibilities for how the new facility can be used.
