Headcorn FC

Headcorn FC

Founded in 1886, Headcorn FC is one of the oldest football clubs in Kent. It is situated between Maidstone and Ashford and has teams that play in leagues in each town. It has a thriving junior section and strongly supports girls’ football, with girls playing in most age groups and in a separate U10s team. The club has recently gained accreditation as an FA Charter Standard Club.

Groundsman Colin Gibbs, who is also the club’s treasurer, recently took delivery of 60 tonnes of British Sugar TOPSOIL’s Sports&Turf topdressing to treat the main pitch. A verti-drain, tractor, and disc spreader were hired in to aerate the sward and relieve compaction before the topdressing was liberally applied to improve drainage and encourage growth.

Colin, who did all the preparation and top dressing himself, said:

“As a junior club we are providing football to 16 teams, from the U6 Development Squad up to U16s. Only having one full-size pitch, used for matches and training at all age groups, there is a lot of wear and tear throughout the season. We rely on quality products and services to keep the pitch in a good, playable condition.”

Colin continued:

“The delivery was at a time to suit the club and I was always kept up to date by the haulier. The top dressing was of high quality and applied to the pitch with ease. Thank you again for a great service and I hope to use Sports&Turf topdressing for future applications.”
