68 MATCHES, 2 CUPS AND A PITCH UPGRADE FOR CONGLETON TOWN FC Post Thumbnail

After a long and successful couple of seasons, the pitch at Congleton Town FC was in need of some TLC.

Therefore, the grounds team there set about planning a makeover and engaging local businesses such as Campey Turf Care Systems and ASHBROOK in the process.

Andrew Aldcroft, ASHBROOK director comments, ‘as a local business we love to support Congleton community initiatives where we can and having supported the Football Club in the past, we were delighted when Steve got in touch asking for a possible loan of a telehandler.

Our hire team jumped to it confirming that we could provide the machine and highlighting the documents and cover needed to allow the hire to happen.’

‘We have supplied a JCB 531-70, a 7m Telehandler, which has reach capabilities of 7m and is able to lift weights of 3.1t’, continues Andrew.  ‘They have excellent manoeuvrability thanks to 3 steer modes and superb visibility. The Dieselmax Stage V engine means it operates to the latest best practice in emission standards.  In fact, the JCB range of telehandlers are hailed as market leaders and ASHBROOK is fortunate enough to operate one of the largest independently owned fleets in the UK.’

‘This type of telehandler is extremely flexible and has been used on everything from construction sites to setting up the Manchester Pride event, and even went to Eurovision last week.  So, it will be a very useful tool for the pitch makeover and coming supplied with a bucket attachment means that loading the sand into the hopper can happen efficiently’, concludes Andrew.

Good luck to Congleton Town FC in the 23/24 season and we hope that the makeover brings fleet of foot and continued success.
