ARFC Pitch Improvement - Day 2

3 months ago By Nigel Youell

Anstey Park - More Holes than Blackburn Lancashire?

Sorry I couldn't resist the reference to the Beatles song 'A Day in the Life'.

So at the end of day 2 Pitch 1 is fully Verti-drained and Pitch 2 is almost done. Tomorrow you need to get down to Anstey Park with your seaside bucket and spade as 180 tonnes of sand gets delivered beginning at 08:00. Well not quite, but the ladies will not be training where they were tonight as there will be some very big piles of sand between the pitches!

Also, tomorrow the very large sand spreading machine turns up and club member, Jamie Legg, begins the process of spreading this enormous amount of sand over the two pitches. Thank you Jamie for stepping up to do this. I, and I know the club are very grateful to you for giving up you time to do this.

More updates tomorrow as long as I stand in the right position when directing the lorries and don't get buried under the sand!
