The sod for the new Astroturf pitch at Wexford CBS has been turned.
A spokesperson for Wexford CBS confirmed the news yesterday:
“The first sod was officially turned today for our new floodlit Astroturf pitch this afternoon! We’re very excited that our #PitchTogether is underway! Thanks very much to everyone who supported our fundraisers in recent weeks.”
At the turning of the ground included Pictured are Peadar Murphy (contractor), Gerry Forde (Chair Board of Management) Mr. Nolan (Deputy Principal), Mr. Hegarty (School Principal).
The exciting plan will see the old Wexford CBS pitch transformed into the first fully-sized floodlight Astroturf pitch of any kind in County Wexford.
