3G pitch

Speaking up for our national game

Maidstone United co-owner Oliver Ash has answered the FA call for ideas to help increase the number of top quality English footballers being produced, in a letter to Greg Dyke, the new chairman of the Football Association.

After the club were name-checked by Greg Dyke during his first major speech since taking over from David Bernstein, Ash took the opportunity to pen a personal letter about the state of the national game, and the role non-league clubs could have in reinvigorating the sport.

He highlighted the benefits of 3G football turf and called for the FA to show leadership in ensuring 3G is encouraged throughout the non-league game and the lower levels of the Football League. He also appealed for greater protection for non-league clubs that often see young talent snapped up for little or no compensation.
