The pitch

Post by Gazza8 »

Somebody can me explain the horrific state of the pitch ? There is no grass, it's only earth. How can be like this ?! What are the solutions to resolve and get better the state of the pitch ? New gras at the end of season ? Has got a disease on the grass that explain it ?

Correct. If it starts drying out it gets 'crusty' and the ball can bobble on it. As long as it is kept wet and rolled down it is no problem. I do wonder what they will do in the close season? Just re-seed or dig it up and start again?
