Over the last few years the Lilies have been looking to match their achievements on the pitch by upgrading their West Street base - and Mick George lent a hand recently with a £15,842 grant.

That hefty sum has been spent on relaying the ground’s driveway and installing new furnishings and fire alarms in its clubhouse.

Lester Kent, director at Chatteris Town, said: “The transformation has been incredible. No longer are first impressions of a depressing nature, they’re now much more positive.

“The local community now has a clean, bright and appealing location that can be used as a social facility.

“We’re now even hosting pilates classes, company meetings and parties. On behalf of all connected with the club, we’d like to thank Mick George for their generosity.”

Chatteris have expressed their gratitude by renaming the club’s seated stand after the company.

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George said: “Given that we specialise in the groundworks and aggregates field, we were more than happy to assist.”
