Pitch

Recommended Posts

The pitch seemed to be cut up badly after last night's game. I hope this is not the start of a disaster. Tommy is going to have to produce his magic once again!!!!!!!!

Yes.  I noticed that too.  There just isn't enough time between the end of one season and the start of the next to get a new pitch laid and allow the grass to  get properly established.  It wasn't too bad and as long as it survives the next two or three games without significant damage I think it will be just fine.

We don't play on it again till the 10th of August,  so hopefully that will give it enough time to strengthen up. Even Robbo and Barry were out at half time putting the divots back!

The pitch is new and had two games within the space of a few days,

All new pitches take time to bed and the reality is that the work needed to be undertaken (indeed we had delayed it by a year).

There is a risk that the pitch is not 100% for this year and often it is year 2 that it improves.

Don't see how moaning about something which was needed will help.

Tree you should look at it as an observation not a criticism. Having known Tommy for many years I am sure he will be disappointed and slightly concerned.

Looks like they skimped on the drainage for the north east  corner, its in an awful state - noticed it was looking bare & boggy last week and it hasn't improved since. Was hoping the ref would abandon the game due to ball not rolling or bouncing in that area...

I was told they started cutting the grass before the Dunfermline game and that is what caused the problem. No idea if that is right but it is a strip that is the problem. It was a bit better today (I like the team) but still causing the ball to stick more than it should.
