“White Horse worked really well with our own staff and met all the deadlines imposed by the demands of our footballing schedule. The end product is something of which we can all be proud, thanks in no small measure to White Horse's client care, ethics and especially its staff”

Alan Shaw, Company Secretary for Chelsea Football Club.

“The early inclusion of White Horse Contractors to the design and build team ensured that the design of the drainage and irrigation systems were cost effective. Working closely with the main contractor the construction was completed to programme. The resulting ten pitches of varying sizes are now in use and proving to be very satisfactory.”

AJ Burns, Club Project Manager, Derby County FC.
