Truewood Joinery & Shopfitters give dressing rooms a makeover
On the morning of the Southend United game the home team walked into a surprise.
Work had been going on behind the scenes to redevelop the home dressing room with a massive makeover.
The dressing room area has moved to the old gym space to give the players a better environment to prepare for home games.
The new look was designed by long-time club architect Peter Curtis and the hard work was done by Truewood Joinery & Shopfitters.
In consultation with the football staff and the club Peter worked on a design that would be right on match day for the players and all of the staff.
There are now twenty-two blue and amber changing units with individual blue led lights as well as individual power and USB point.
In the centre of the room there are two Montgomery Waters fridges that hold the players water, as well as acting as a table for the medical staff for their matchday items.
Town CEO Brian Caldwell is pleased with the new look to the home dressing rooms, and revealed it’s some that has been in the pipeline for a while.
“I always felt it wasn’t right that both home and away changing rooms are same size and spec, and I also felt the gym was a better space and shape.
“We have previously had discussion with both Mickey Mellon and Paul Hurst prior to ones with John about getting the work done and I’m pleased it is now finished.
“We are delighted with the changing room which looks fantastic and certainly was well received by the players who didn’t see it until arriving for the game Saturday. Hopefully the new facilities helped towards getting the win on Saturday. “
