The NT&DL will again this year award clubs for Best Facilities and Most Improved Facilities.
As we know the facilities in the NT&DL have improved greatly in recent years.
The three contenders for the award for Best Facilities are well deserved and show exactly what is possible for football clubs in the area.
First up is Lough Derg Football Club. The Killaloe side have been a breath of fresh air over the past few years with Clarisford Park being a hugely popular destination for all clubs. Their carpet like pitch is matched with their fantastic dressing rooms and picturesque landscape. A lot of work has gone in here and they are certainly deserved finalists here.
Clodiagh Rangers Football Club purchased their 7 acre site 2002 and have continuously worked hard to improve since. The dressing rooms were erected in 2005 and in 2013 a second pitch was laid in Drombane as they looked to enhance their catchment areas and their slick pitches aided them on reaching the the Premier Division two years ago.
Borrisokane Football Club have an outstanding playing surface that can be rivalled by very few in North Tipperary. This has also aided them in reaching the top tier having won the Division 1 last season.
Most Improved Facilities:
Ballymackey Fc have steadily improved their facilities in recent years having laid a fantastic pitch in Balinree aswell as an all weather pitch that will be used as a financial aid to getting dressing rooms in time to come.
BT Harps have also laid a fine pitch and Astro Turf in Priory Place but they have also managed to erect their club house. Their pitch is regarded as one of the best in the league and this will only serve as a catalyst in their search for trophies.
Holycross Fc have built a fantastic clubhouse in Drombane and in time will look to lay a top pitch. This hard working side have built a lot in the past few years and are striving to improve as each year passes.
