If not, FSL can remove the existing fascia and supply a new fascia which is finished in marine plywood A sound structure is important for your Scoreboard whether it be a new frame structure or an existing Scoreboard hut or clubhouse – FSL can even offer a trolley making your scoreboard portable!

Scoreboard Layout – FSL can advise you on the design, size, and layout of boards plus construction materials. Send a rough drawing of what you require and the measurements of your scorehut and FSL technicians will supply you with a detailed drawing for the clubs carpenters to fit, most clubs do the installations themselves to save money.

Easy Installation – No specialist installation is required as scoreboards are shipped with integral brackets so they can be mounted by the customer, either on a wall or posts. All that is needed is to connect the mains lead to a supply and switch on the controller.
