THE ground at Walsham-le-Willows FC has undergone a facelift.
The Morrish Stadium has had a new Duralock fence fitted around the first-team pitch. One side has been left partially open as it is adjacent to the cricket club’s square.
Duralock are a partner of Suffolk FA whose fencing was fitted at Brantham Leisure Centre, where Brantham Athletic play, prior to the start of last season.
The fence at Walsham has cost £26,884 to install which has been made possible through Football Foundation funding of £18,479, with the remainder coming from club funds.
Bury Town goalkeeper Ben Mayhew, who runs BM Fencing, has installed the fence.

Mike Powles, Chair of Walsham-le-Willows Sports Club, said: “The old keyclamp fencing was unsightly and dangerous in places as it had fallen into disrepair.
“The new fence looks good and more professional and is easier to attach advertising boards to as well as being easier to remove and refit to accommodate cricket during the Summer.
“Yasmin and the team at Duralock have looked after us very well and even stayed late to load our haulier who had been delayed on an earlier delivery which is not something many companies would do.”
Duralock Commercial Manager Yasmin Seath added: “We are delighted that our partnership with Suffolk FA is helping more local clubs to improve safety at their facility by installing a Duralock pitch barrier system, every fencing solution we create is designed with reliability, opulence, and safety at its core.”
