It is the first time since we have been helping out at the Abbey that the ferret has been used.
The side of the pitch in front of the Main Stand had reached the point when it needed some much needed care and attention.
The ferret just ruffs the ground up enough to give it a perfect tilth to put grass seed down.
It’s extremely hard work to use. The sheets are on the pitch to provide some heat for the seed to germinate
Hopefully, by the next match the grass seed will have started to appear.
