ENFIELD RFC

FIELD UPGRADES!

In partnership with the Enfield, Elmsdale & District Lions Club, and with the support of the Municipality of East Hants, and the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, Enfield RFC is excited to announce our plans to make improvements to the Breagh MacNeil Memorial Field.

We are beginning a four-part construction project that will improve the quality of the existing playing surface, allow for an extension of the size of the field to match World Rugby standards, address water and drainage issues along two sides of the field, and address the much storied “dip” at the goal line.

 

PLAN

 

TIMELINE

  1. Extending south end of field and in-goal area and relocating portions of existing trail;

  2. Adding drainage ditching along length of field;

  3. Leveling existing playing surface, then topping and seeding field;

  4. Extending north end of field, and adding draining to in-goal;
