New pictures of Beccles Town Football Club’s facility at The Nest, off Common Lane South, show how the pitch is shaping up.

Contractors moved into the site on October 15 and have been working tirelessly to build the all-weather pitch.

Chairman David Leech said the pitch will be installed next week as work enters the final phase.

He said: “It’s coming on well, the progress has been good. We will be having a big opening when the weather is better.

“It’s coming at the perfect time with the bad weather the pitches are starting to get unsafe. This provides an option for kids to keep training.”
