Day 3 and the pitch is all stripped but it has been very challenging working around the weather.
New drains now being installed
Look what is under the grass??
The sub-soil at the Abbey stadium is just about as bad as it can get with blue clay just 10 inches below the playing surface, That is why it is so important to have an effective drainage system.
Drains laid just 10 years ago have been found to be totally contaminated by the clay preventing them running and the drains along the mainstand side of the pitch had been crushed by the vehicles from the Aha concert.
