Who are Blisworth FC?

Blisworth Football Club, a respected and long-standing institution within the UK football community. Founded in 1898, the club boasts a rich history and a deep-rooted connection with the local community. It is officially affiliated with the Northamptonshire Football Association, underscoring its commitment to maintaining high standards of governance and play.

Since 1950, Blisworth Football Club has called its current facility home, a testament to its stability and enduring presence in the area. Over the years, the club has significantly expanded its outreach and development programmes, particularly at the youth level. It now supports 21 youth teams, covering age groups from Under 6s through to Under 18s. This broad range of teams highlights the club’s dedication to fostering young talent and ensuring that children and teenagers have ample opportunity to engage in football, develop their skills, and enjoy the benefits of team sports.

In addition to its youth teams, Blisworth Football Club also fields three open-aged teams. This includes a Ladies’ team, reflecting the club’s inclusive approach and its commitment to promoting women’s football.

The brief

How did we help?

Acorn Analytical Services was approached by Blisworth Football Club, a long-standing partner and beneficiary of Acorn’s sponsorship, to undertake a critical project aimed at enhancing the club’s facilities. The project’s scope was comprehensive, encompassing an initial Asbestos Demolition Survey, followed by the safe removal of asbestos-containing materials, the demolition of the existing structure, and a complete site clearance.

Given the club’s active role in the community, hosting 21 youth teams and several open-aged teams, including a Ladies’ team, the timeline for this project was particularly challenging. The club’s bustling schedule meant that the window for completing the work was limited to a brief period, during which the club could afford to be without its facilities for only a few games.

Understanding the importance of minimising disruption to the club’s activities, Acorn swiftly mobilised its resources. The first step involved conducting a thorough Asbestos Demolition Survey to identify all asbestos-containing materials within the building. This initial survey is crucial for ensuring the safety of all subsequent demolition activities, as asbestos can pose significant health risks if not handled correctly.

Following the survey, Acorn coordinated with a certified asbestos removal contractor to ensure the safe and efficient removal of all identified asbestos materials. This step was critical to not only adhering to health and safety regulations but also to preventing any potential delays in the demolition process.

With the asbestos safely removed, the project moved to the demolition phase. Acorn’s expertise and efficient project management enabled the demolition and full site clearance to be completed within a tight timeframe. This swift turnaround was instrumental in minimising the impact on the club’s operations and ensuring that the teams could return to their regular activities as soon as possible.
