3G Footwear

July 04, 2017

We are delighted to inform you that our new state of the art 3G pitch will soon be opening. This is an incredibly exciting time for sport at the Sherburn High School and for our local community.

In order to maintain the quality of the playing surface of the new pitch and guarantee its longevity, there will be strict guidelines regarding the footwear that will be permitted.

The company that have installed the pitch strongly recommend that only moulded studs (examples shown below) are to be used on the 3G surface, and this is a policy that we must enforce. Consequently, moulded boots will now be a mandatory element of the Sherburn High School PE uniform from September 2017.


Please note, 'astro' boots, trainers and metal studs are NOT suitable for the 3G surface. Students who currently own boots with metal studs are recommended to continue using these on the grass pitches. However, students will also be able to use moulded studs on our grass pitches, should they prefer.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
