Statement: The FDC @ Flegg
Ormiston Academies Trust to operate 3G pitch at Flegg High School from Tuesday 1 August 2023.
The FDC Flegg was built in the summer of 2016 and was Norfolk’s first rural football hub. It provides a state of the art football facility for Flegg High Ormiston Academy during the day and the local community during the evenings and weekends.
Over the last seven years, Norfolk County FA have provided opportunities to thousands of people to access the facility and take part in both affiliated and recreational football.
From Tuesday 1 August 2023, the Artificial Grass Pitch based in Martham will be operated by Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), meaning that Norfolk County FA’s tenure of the site has ceased.
All existing bookings will be contacted in due course by OAT's lettings management partner, Edu Lettings and for all future bookings and anything else relating to the facility, please contact EDU Lettings directly at on 0333 102 03 03 or email email@example.com or click here to make a booking.

Flegg High Ormiston Academy are delighted to confirm that the facility will remain open and available to the community, operating in a very similar way that the community have experienced prior to the change of management.
Norfolk FA Chairman, Michael Banham, said: “The FDC @ Flegg has been a great facility for the grassroots football community in the east of our County for many years, and will continue to do so under the operation of Ormiston Academies Trust.
"Norfolk FA would like to thank all those that have utilised the site over the last seven years, and hope that they continue to do so for many years to come. I would also like to thank Flegg High Ormiston Academy for our positive working relationship over this period.”
Edu-Lettings Managing Director, Nick Bowen on behalf of Ormiston Academies Trust said: “Our overall aim is to allow schools to make the most of the facilities and help provide local communities with access to sport, education, and leisure opportunities. Our first pledge to you, is that we have reviewed all prices and are keen to support local grassroot and community clubs access this amazing facility.”
