SHREWSBURY TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB
WHAT WAS THE REQUIREMENT
Having announced they would be moving from the Gay Meadow some years earlier, Shrewsbury Town confirmed that they would be moving to a new, purpose built stadium in 2006.
Osprey submitted a tender to design, supply and install automatic irrigation to the new pitch. Having a long standing relations hip with numerous premiership football clubs, we were confident that we could supply a state of the art irrigation system that would fully meet with the clubs requirements.
WHAT WAS THE SOLUTION
Sure enough, out of all the companies that had tendered the works; Osprey was selected to proceed.
Working alongside contractors whilst the pitch was constructed, the works were completed on schedule giving the club a top of range, fully automated irrigation system.
Whilst Osprey were originally working for the main contractors, the Club were delighted with the works and have continued to use Osprey as there service provider ever since.
WHAT THE CLIENT THOUGHT
“The service we receive from Osprey is fantastic. If we have any issues with the irrigation system, I make a phone call and it’s solved either the same day or the next day. The engineers are always very tidy and ensure complete satisfaction before they leave site. I hope that the relationship between STFC and Osprey will be long and prosperous.”
Head Groundsman, Shrewsbury Town Football Club
“The irrigation system at both Molineux and the Jack Haywood Training Ground forms a key part of our maintenance and preparation regimes, making it essential that we have the highest level of support from our suppliers. Having dealt with various other contractors, we can honestly say that Osprey stand head and shoulders above the rest and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anybody else.”

“Osprey have been our irrigation maintenance provider for more than 10 years now, they also carried out a major revamp of the irrigation system at Pride Park Stadium and extended the system at the Training Ground. They always respond to service faults very quickly and when I see an Osprey van drive through the gates, I know that I can stop worrying.”
