Play at the Greenhous Meadow

26 February 2013

Your chance to take to the Greenhous Meadow pitch

Shrewsbury Town are offering local teams, businesses, or perhaps a group of friends, to play on the hallowed turf of the Greenhous Meadow in May.

Participants will have the chance to prepare for the game in the same dressing rooms that your Town heroes use every other Saturday before taking to the pitch in full Shrewsbury Town kit.

Matches will last 60 minutes with FA qualified match officials in charge while there will then be a chance to enjoy post-match refreshments in the bar and receive a souvenir team photo as a reminder of your special day. 

“We are delighted to be holding 'Play on the Pitch' once again this summer," said Andrew Tretton, commerical sales executive at the Greenhous Meadow. "We’ve had to put it on hold the last couple of years due to play-offs, pitch renovations and the Elton John concert.
"But there are 12 game slots available in total this year.
"It's always extremely popular with everyone that takes part and they all enjoy their day whether they win, lose or draw. 
"I expect demand to be high with this being held after a two-year break so if you are interested then please get in touch with me here at the football club as soon as you possibly can.” 

Friday May 3: 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm kick-offs
Saturday May 4: 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm kick-offs
Sunday May 5: 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm kick-offs
