Peter Thompson, of Brigg Hockey Club, is looking for support for the campaign to get an all-weather, floodlit pitch in the town.
Efforts have been made for more than 20 years - without success. But the new hope is an initiative called Building Schools for the Future in North Lincolnshire.
Basically, there's £100-million up for grabs to transform secondary schools in rural areas.
North Lincolnshire Council says it is keen to hear opinions, and the hockey contingent would like to press for an 'Astro' which could be used by school students and for club matches, plus football training and matches, and netball.
North Lincolnshire Council will have a delegation visiting Vale of Ancholme on Thursday (Jan 29) at 6.30pm if you want to go along and voice your opinions.
There will be a similar session at Sir John Nelthorpe on February 4 (also 6.30pm).
Even if you are not interested in the hockey pitch, there's plenty of scope to raise other issues relating to secondary education in Brigg.
Previously, sites at Sir John Nelthorpe School and Brigg Recreation Ground have been put forward for the hockey pitch.
