FOOTBALL pitches are being re-laid on land in Osett Heath.

An open grass space off Heath Road has not been used for football since the 1980s, but after receiving an FA Grant, the council is relaying pitches at the site.

Diggers have been on site in the last two weeks, with works on laying the surfaces set to be completed by the middle of next month.

There will be one mini-pitch and two full-sized pitches. The changing rooms are also being refurbished early next year and the whole site should be ready for football action by the start of next season.
