MH Goals and Norfolk County FA: Growing Grassroots Football Together

In Autumn 2016 we were delighted to announce the start of a three-year partnership with Norfolk County Football Association.

Nearly one year on the partnership is continuing to align and strengthen both brands, working to provide quality football equipment to grassroots clubs at affordable prices. In addition, it’s seen Norfolk-affiliated clubs provided with further discounts and regular special offers.

MH Goals are dedicated to supporting football in the area, a commitment which took Managing Director Mark Harrod and Sales Director Matthew Harrod to the opening of Norfolk County FA and Flegg High School’s new football hub, ‘theFDC@Flegg’, last October. The venue comprises a state-of-the-art, full size 3G Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP) and changing facilities, offering training and playing provision for multiple formats of football. MH Goals also supplied the twelve goals used on the playing surface, allowing games of 11v11, 9v9, 7v7 and 5v5 football to take place.

Norfolk County FA Chairman Michael Banham, who was present to open the occasion, show around key attendees and formally announce the new partnership, said: “The facilities and equipment at theFDC@Flegg are of top quality and that includes the twelve goals present on site that MH Goals have supplied. It’s fantastic that Norfolk FA has been able to form a partnership with a company that provides a service so key to our beautiful game. I am excited for the future workings between the Association and MH Goals and I look forward to seeing this collaboration continue to benefit grassroots football in Norfolk.

The facility was opened by former pupil and ex-Norwich City FC defender Ryan Bennett who was joined by his teammate John Ruddy and Millwall Lionesses goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill.

Bennett said: “The facilities here are first class, allowing the kids to train and play matches on a daily basis. I remember having some great matches here but we certainly never had this standard of facility!”

Mark Harrod, Managing Director of MH Goals, said “theFDC@flegg is an outstanding facility and we are proud to have been involved in such a great project. Norfolk FA’s passion and professionalism have really brought the county’s football into the 21st century and I look forward to the rest of our three-year deal with them. Our partnership has meant, and will continue to mean, that we are able to offer all Norfolk FA affiliated clubs discounts across a whole range of our products and provide them with professional, safe football goals direct from a trusted local manufacturer.”
