Shildon AFC Achieves Ground Grading

Shildon AFC are delighted to confirm that following a Football Association and Northern Premier League inspection last week the Club has achieved Ground Grading 4 (formerly Grade D).  This means we are fully compliant with all the requirements of the grading which is essential in maintaining our presence in the Northern Premier League East.

The Club were complimented on the excellent changing facilities for home/away players and officials and were commended on the work completed on the community garden as well as the newly installed toilets and medical room.

Chairman, David Dent said: “This represents a massive achievement for the Club and the town.  People don’t appreciate that to play at this level demands serious investment on and off the pitch and we’ve achieved this.  We’ve now got a platform to compete at this level for many years to come and I’ve every confidence that we will.”
