I love it. We are very lucky to have a progressive and ambitious chairman, who instead of throwing money at the squad is investing heavily into the club to make it a community facility and build the club up from there. The 1st team should be funded through the club, not an individual throwing money in the hope of a false position.
Up until a few years ago, i would have been very wary of it, been a traditionalist who liked to see grass and mud etc, however seeing the amount of junior teams playing on it on a Sunday, there is no doubt that it is the way forward.
Then initial cost is very high, but its available for hire and the club house is now buzzing throughout Sundays with teams that used to have to play either at the local rec or miles away on Purley Way.
Also, an end of season renovation of a football ground should cost between £6000 to £10000 for a basic renovation plus whatever you spend through out the season. Gone are the days of having to have an expensive service on the mowers etc.

We had a couple of teething troubles early on, but now it seems to be settling down nicely and although visiting fans seem split on whether its good or not, the visiting players seem to love it. It has consistent bounce and although a little slow at the moment, i believe it will quicken up in time. I,m sold on it and i think others over the next few years will come around. These are not the QPR or Luton plastic bounce-a-thons of the 80's .
