Pitch Renovation Begins

Off-Season Work Starts On Playing Surface

22 May 2019

The first stage of the club's off-season pitch renovations began today, with the top level being shaved off.

The process, known as Koroing, is a regular process used on football and rugby pitches to remove the surface of vegetation and organic matter. 

It will be followed by a period of cultivation and levelling, prior to fibre sand, seed and fertiliser being added. 

The new pitch will be ready in time for the club's pre-season friendly against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday 27 July, kick-off 3pm.
