Jersey FA: Springfield could get '3G' surface for Island Games

The pitch at the home of Jersey football, Springfield, could be replaced by an artificial 3G surface under plans unveiled by the island's Football Association.

The proposal is part of a wider facilities strategy announced to clubs on Thursday night.

After numerous postponements because of the weather, officials hope a new pitch would allow more fixtures to go ahead.

The project ahead of the Island Games in 2015 would cost up to £500,000.
