On Saturday 11th May, annual pitch renovations commenced. This year the club, for the 3rd year running put money into drainage work specifically which we hope now will solve our drainage problems.

The winters are getting longer and wetter and pitches are becoming more difficult to maintain in the winter months. We as a club hate calling games off and we hope this will certainly help. The pitch was also levelled in a lot of places; further work on this will take place in two weeks time.

Thanks must go to SMG Groundworks who carried out the work and supplied the machinery. 12-13 hours of work was put in each and we moved 48 tons of gravel, 30 tons of soil (with 15 more to come) and it wouldn’t of happened with out all the groundsmen as well.

Special thanks go to Dave Searle, Peter Grenfell & Dave Tedd who all put in that time and hard work and it would of never been finished in a day without them.

 

 

THANK YOU TO YOU ALL

 

 

 

Regards
