Massive thanks to Tom Cooper & his colleagues at @SGDLtd for another fantastic job with our new 50 seated spectator stand. Would highly recommend these guys fully professional service all the way through from contact to end product.

Could you please thank your installation team for their professionalism and attention to detail Tom? They obviously take great pride in their work and were meticulous in ensuring we were left with a structure that our committee are naturally delighted with.

Huge thanks to the guys who looked after the new barriers and a few other elements of our ground development - nothing was too much trouble for them.

Massive respect to Tom and his team at Sports Ground Development Ltd from everyone at Darlaston Town (1874) FC. From start to finish it has been an absolute breeze dealing with Tom, his team and his contractors in planning and erecting our floodlights. His team were punctual, tidy, effective and efficient during every stage of the process. At times they worked in the most horrendous weather conditions, never a grumble and still finished ahead of time. To be honest a few weeks after completion most of the grass has grown back and you would think the floodlights have been there for years. Great stuff from all involved.

We are very satisfied with the work undertaken in accordance with your quotation. Despite a day lost because of rain the fitting guys worked hard and completed the task within the agreed timescale, and to our complete satisfaction. They were very attentive to the individual requirements of the customer and ready to accommodate our wishes. The product suits our needs and was supplied and fitted within budget so we are delighted with this upgrade to our senior pitch, which will I am sure meet the approval of the FA when they consider our application for promotion.

Could I please start off by saying what a great job you have done installing the floodlights for us. Your contractors went out of their way to look after our land around the pitch perimeter which we really appreciate and the lights look brilliant.

Hi Tom, just a quick message for a fantastic job with the stands - absolutely over the moon with it really brings the ground alive and our ground is really starting to look like a proper football club. Can't wait to get the seated one in as well. Please pass my thanks onto all the guys involved - they have done a brilliant job - thanks again Tom.

Thank you for all that you have done to get our Floodlights upgraded. They are now generating fantastic light and we will certainly look to use you again in future for all our ground improvement needs.

I am pleased to say that after your team’s last visit to make some alterations to the wiring set up we have had no further problems at all with the lights and in fact people at the club are generally very pleased with the end product, so I thank your company for that and the work in ironing out the problems we experienced. The end product we are very pleased with and I think we have now got some of the best floodlights around – especially in the Southern League Division 1 Central.

I would also, on behalf of the club, like to say what a great job the installation team did, and how good the finished fencing looks. The whole installation went like clockwork, the team were on site when they said they would be, the fencing arrived on schedule and the install finished on time and in budget, what more could we ask for?
