Hampshire FA Signs Exclusive Partnership with Fisher Lane GroundCare

Fisher Lane Groundcare secures 2-season partnership with Hampshire FA under the exclusive naming rights, Official Grass Pitch Maintenance Partner.

The business was founded in 2013 by Founder and Managing Director, Stuart Rittman. The business prides itself on ensuring that natural sports turf surfaces are regularly maintained and renovated to stay in the best playable state. With little or no maintenance programme in place, the existing sports pitch may rapidly deteriorate over the years and with increased demand.

Fisher Lane Groundcare are firm believers that the right renovation programme is of equal importance to the construction itself to maintain the playing surface’s peak condition. As such, choosing the right renovation programme coupled with a planned and thorough maintenance programme is vital to restore the facility’s playing surface to optimal condition and ensure it’s ready for the challenges of the new season.

We have teamed up with the company to primarily support our Stoneham Lane Football Complex facility. The partnership will see the company complete a fertiliser application, spraying, aeration and much more included as part of the partnership, cementing a partner and customer relationship. Additionally, grassroots football clubs will also benefit from offers and deals throughout the season with 10% off for grassroots clubs on their first treatment. Please contact:, with your club name and details, to discuss with our partners. 

"Fisher Lane Groundcare has established a reputation for exceptional customer service and expertise in grounds care. Their team is professional, approachable, and always willing to go the extra mile to address any concerns, requests and most importantly, listen to our needs and are dedicated to provide outstanding service. They understand the importance of timely and efficient service, ensuring that our pitches are consistently in the best condition possible, regardless of weather conditions or heavy usage". Pete Hussey, Hampshire FA Facilities Operations Manager.

“We are pleased to welcome a grass pitch maintenance partner to our commercial programme and look forward to Fisher Lane Groundcare’s presence at the next Grounds & Maintenance Forum in March 2024. The forum held this year continued the success of the pilot launched in 2021 and partnerships such as this, further add value to our offer. We have engaged more local authorities to attend the event as well as our own grounds teams in the county. We welcome Stuart and his team and hope we can continue much of the same success at the next event in March 2024”. Neil Cassar, Hampshire FA CEO.

“Here at Fisher Lane Groundcare, we are delighted to be part of the Hampshire FA team to support the beautiful game and importantly the foundations of the game - grassroots. From grassroots upwards, we are looking forward to helping clubs with the improvement of their pitches across Hampshire and beyond. We see how dedicated and passionate the Hampshire FA staff are from Pete Hussey and Issy Pearson in their respective areas, to the staff on the front line. The team are truly invested in and believe in what they are doing and that speaks volumes for me and my company. It was the natural progression to partner with the county FA”. Stuart Rittman, Fisher Lane Groundcare CEO.
