A CLUB FOR ALL SEASONS 2020 - DEVELOPMENT PLAN

At St. Sylvester’s, we have the ambition to build a first–class sports campus in Broomfield that matches the expectations & ambitions of our players and which reaches our needs as a fast-growing Club. Our vision is to develop a new facility designed to bring the majority of our games and playing activities into one centralised area at Broomfield Pitches where there is much potential.

OUR CLUB IS GROWING!

We are seeing constant growth in our Club in the past couple of years. Membership has increased year on year by up to 10%.  We are seeing particularly strong growth in our juvenile and ladies/girls sections.  We recognise that this growth needs continued investment in our playing, social and other sporting facilities to both meet this new demand, and also drive further growth in membership numbers.

PROGRESS SO FAR:

Our vision is to develop a new facility designed to bring the majority of our games and playing activities into one centralised area at Broomfield Pitches where there is much potential.  We have already begun developing with significant investment in the past three years funded solely by Sports Capital Grants, Club fund-raising events and a number of very generous benefactors from the local community:

2015                Improvements to changing rooms, gym & training area

2013-’16          Development of the new Ball Wall

2017                Installation of Floodlights on Pitch

 Ball Wall

WHAT’S NEXT?

With the installation of new floodlighting to Pitch 2 at Broomfield we have taken the vital first step to begin an All-Weather surfaced facility that can allow both training and the playing of games uninterrupted by wet weather through Autumn and Winter. This is particularly important for our growing number of young players whose progress is being constrained by the lack of such facilities.  We hope that, with agreement and the funds needed, development can begin in early summer of 2019.New Pitch 2 vision

Potential for All-Weather Pitch This Year! As you are aware, we have ambitious plans to further develop our playing facilities in Broomfield to provide the best opportunity for our players to realise their potential. The establishment of an all-weather pitch is the club’s top priority. We have already received phenomenal support, and have raised over €400,000 since June 2017.

The recent weather and how it impacts upon our early season preparations reinforces our belief that we should do all we can to complete this project in 2018, which is possible if we have sufficient funds to fully commit to begin the build.  The first week of May is the key decision time, whereby we need to raise a further €250,000. If not, we will need to wait another 12 months.
