Maplesden Noakes pitch to be relaid

Soccer Elite FA were delighted to receive the news this week that the artificial pitch at Maplesden Noakes will be relaid during the summer holidays.

The school, on Buckland Road, has been home to our Maidstone Scholarship for nearly a decade and is managed by Jay Saunders. It has seen players including Ellis Iandolo and Aaron Simpson graduate into professional football with countless others moving into the semi pro game.

After many years of solid use, a brand new surface will be installed in time for the start of the new academic year in September.
