Win your ground a makeover!

THE Johnstone's Paint Trophy team have launched a grass roots competition to spruce up non-league grounds and pitches across the country.

Amateur football clubs and organisations with run-down, dilapidated facilities are being urged to nominate their ground for a facelift, courtesy of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.  As sponsors of the Football League Trophy, Johnstone's are ready with their own decorating team, to visit grass roots grounds across the country that are most in need of a lick of paint and a general tidy-up.

Sports clubs who wish to enter the Johnstone's community club makeover initiative will have until December 31 to upload a picture of their facilities in their current state to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy website.

They will also need to state which non-league they play in, and give an explanation of why they think they deserve to win, in no more than 50 words.

A total of eight successful clubs will be shortlisted to receive a £300 voucher to spend at their local Johnstone's Leyland Decorating Centre to help spruce up their grounds and changing rooms.

Each of these clubs will then be displayed on the Johnstone's Paint Trophy website during January for fans to vote for an overall national winner who will not only receive an additional £1,000 Johnstone's Leyland Decorating Centre voucher but also a well deserved new year makeover courtesy of Johnstone's very own decorating team.

Johnstone's Paint Trophy Sponsorship Manager Teresa Hardwick said: "We are passionate about grass roots football and through this competition we will be able to give something back to the local community.

"Our passion is to bring colour to the Beautiful Game, which is why we launched this initiative. We want to give something back to the people that matter - the fans".
