There is a lack of training facilities in the Canterbury area available to schools and the local community. Matches are restricted according to the availability of local sporting facilities. Practice time is limited by inclement weather and poor light through the winter months, having a negative impact on the standard of play.


The pitch will be made available to the local community outside school hours. More matches could be held at St Edmund's giving more opportunities to schools in the local area. It would allow young, sporting enthusiasts to develop top ball-handling skills through increased practice time.
