With the 2014/15 season now over, plans to dig up and relay a new top layer to the pitch commenced on Wednesday morning.With around two months to prepare for the players and coaching staff’s return for pre-season, there was no delay to proceedings at Glanford Park.
The top three inches of turf will be removed, with new seeds planted beneath the grass amongst the recently replenished soil.
The Iron finished the season on Sunday away at Doncaster Rovers, with the pitch here at home unused since the 2-1 win over Gillingham on April 25.
Torrential rain and thunder left the surface flooded and almost unplayable on the afternoon, but after hard work from members of the United staff, the game continued a short while later.
Since then the waterlogged pitch has been drained, and with the build up to the 2015/16 campaign just around the corner, all systems are go to ensure a quality playing surface for the foreseeable future.
