Tom Paul

Groundsman of the Year 2019

Beds FA are delighted to announce the Groundsman of the Year 2019 winners: Tom Belton & Paul O’Brien.

Tom & Paul look after the excellently prepared grass pitches at Biggleswade Town FC, Langford Road. The venue provides a playing surface for Biggleswade Town Youth and Biggleswade FC reserves across 5v5, 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 formats. The 11a-side pitch (over-marked with U13/14 dimensions) with moveable goalposts has in excess of 70 + games per season with 2-3 weekly fixtures each weekend.

The quality of the front pitches bearing in mind the high carrying capacity is testament to the work of Tom and Paul. Both will now receive a Dimple line marker and 3 drums of line marking paint along with an invite to an event to celebrate the Groundsman of the Year at the end of the season.
