After discussion with the London Borough of Richmond; from the 2011/12 season Sheen Lions will use Palewell Park for all their matches and training. Mini football matches and training previously located at Sheen Common will move to Palewell. This will allow Sheen Lions to consolidated its activities and allow the LBRUT to improve the cricket facilities at Sheen Common. We may still use the 11-a-side pitch at Sheen Common on exceptional occasions.
LBRUT will be reconfiguring the Palewell pitches so we have mini soccer pitches on the space that is currently pitch 1 and to include a new 9 v 9 pitch needed for U11 football next season. Areas will designated for Saturday training to allow space for Sheen Lions and other current users of Palewell.
Once the current refurbishment work at Palewell is complete we will have storage facilities available and Mangers will no longer have to store and transport corner posts and nets.
