Pitch re-seeding underway

Contractors Clive Richardson Ltd were today putting the final touches to this season’s Edgar Street pitch renovations.

With the drainage system now fully installed, the top surface has been properly prepared and is being re-seeded using the same Barenbrug seed that is used at top stadiums like World Cup venues and Premier League grounds like Old Trafford.

A spokesman observed that the old drains installed some twenty-five years ago were too few and blocked with silt and fibre growth making them totally ineffective.

Richardsons will return in about a month to apply a final top dressing of slitted sand.  Meanwhile they have been persuaded to undertake some additional work to the training pitch area that it is believed will come as "part of the deal".
