Wolverhampton Wanderers FC has completed a major investment project at its two main venues – Molineux Stadium and the Sir Jack Hayward academy training centre. The upgrades were needed following the club's promotion to the English Premier League in 2018.

At the centre of the works has been the development of the training centre. As part of the project, Wolves took delivery of pioneering DevoShift training goals, supplied by Mark Harrod.

Two years in development, the DevoShift is intended to roll out on to synthetic and high-quality pitches, allowing site personnel to steer a full-sized goal through access gates with minimal fuss and resources.

"Mark Harrod had developed the concept of a goal, designed to use on synthetic pitches, and wanted to trial it," said Wolves head groundsman Wayne Lumbard. "We were delighted to put the product through its paces, as I believe that latest generation synthetic pitches deserve latest technology goals.”

Lumbard adds that the trial was successful. “For groundsmen, this goal is a no-brainer," he said.

“Two people can quickly and easily swivel and push the DevoShift goals in any direction, not just forwards and backwards, as with current equipment.”
