We have had a seasonal pitch at Nunnykirk for several years now and love it.
We've just received our September magazine with the application form for 2020 seasonal. When I looked at it with the intention of applying for next year I found Nunnykirk missing. I assumed it was possibly a printing error and phoned the club.
I was told they'd already had several calls on this topic but he could only tell me that the regional manager had decided not to allow seasonal pitches on site for next year.
To me this is a very strange decision. Nunnykirk has 75 pitches and about 30 of these are seasonal. If you remove the seasonal pitches then quite a lot of the time you will be lucky to have a dozen units on site.
The club is losing roughly £31,000 by removing the seasonal pitches. It doesn't make economic sense to me and I wonder if the club is ultimately looking to close Nunnykirk
