Pitch preparations underway for 2018-19

29 May 2018

Work began to prepare the Glanford Park playing surface for the 2018-19 campaign over the Bank Holiday weekend.

With around two months to prepare the surface until it will be required for pre-season, there has been no delay from the ground staff and Fineturf as they ready the main pitch at Glanford Park and also the training pitch.

Work began on the training pitch, across the West Car Park, in mid-May, starting with the removal of the top layers before sand slitting took place. The slits are then backfilled and pressed before sand is spread across the surface.

The pitch was then seeded using MM seed, which is a high quality sports and amenity seed range from Limagain UK - part of the Limagrain group the largest seed company in Europe.

Work was undertaken on the main pitch over the weekend, with the surface of Glanford Park taken up before a similar procedure commences ahead of the new season. 

Once again, with the build up to the 2018-19 campaign just around the corner, all systems are go to ensure a quality playing surface for the foreseeable future.
