Training to be match-ready

AFC Uckfield Colts trainingThroughout most of the season training will be on the 3G Pitches behind Uckfield Leisure Centre (directions below). However, when the weather and daylight allows we like to train on grass to provide the players experience of the surface.

Most seasons we will run some pre-season training on grass before moving to the 3G pitch, usually around early-mid September (exact date for 2017-2018 season yet to be confirmed). This season we will begin training on grass on Friday 18th August between 6-7. Training will be at Isfield Recreation Ground (directions below).

We can open up the pavilion there for toilet facilities and for shelter if rain creeps up on us (and for a cheeky cup of tea no doubt). We ask that anyone using the pavilion facilities treat it with the same respect you would your own home. We have been kindly entrusted by the cricket club to use their facilities and they expect us to leave them as they were found. We shall let you know once training begins on the 3G Pitch. As above, this is expected to be early to late September.

All players must have suitable kit for training in all weather conditions, shin pads and suitable football boots. When we move to the 3G pitch all players must have suitable Grass boots (AG). Please visit the Football Nation site for guidance on boots

The cricket fields are behind the village hall. There is parking next to the pavilion close to the fields, but I can’t see the name of the road on Google Maps. Basically, it’s the second left after the village hall.

If that fails, you can park on the village hall and with the village hall on your back, there’s a cut through the bushes on your left (it’s not obvious but it’s there). Follow that through to a housing estate and as you come through, opposite you on your right is an alley that brings you to the fields.
