The first job for Mick and Ian was to measure and mark out the pitch with string. The whole pitch needed to be done to ensure the goalposts were being placed in the exact position. It also needed to be marked out from one end of the pitch to the other to ensure the goalpost were being placed exactly in line with each other.
The goalpost frame was put together and laid out. The post holder was then placed in the exact position with concrete. Before the posts are placed upright, the hole will need to be filled with concrete in stages, so it is allowed to dry and harden properly. What's not needed is to have to do the job a second time for rushing it first time
