Colne’s XLCR Stadium has passed the Ground Grading criteria for the Evo-Stik League.
With the season closing and the Reds battling for promotion to the Evo-Stik, the news was welcomed by the club.
Chairman Shaun O’Neill passed on his thanks to all the volunteers who put in their own time in the evenings and weekends throughout this season.
Shaun added “A special mention must go to Vice-Chairman and Groundsman Richard Harries who has worked tirelessly on the pitch & off the pitch to ensure the ground made the grade.
He’s missed our away games to ensure he could work on the ground without any interruptions, he’s never away from the place, he is a real credit to the club”
Following its grading inspection earlier in the season the club had a number of items that required attention which have now been rectified.
