12 February 2014

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.

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. "It's always extremely popular with everyone that takes part and they all enjoy their day whether they win, lose or draw”

“Demand is always high every year we stage this, so if you are interested then please get in touch with me here at the football club as soon as you possibly can.”
