Back at the Abbey today and trying to fool nature. Reseeding the goalmouths have taken place. See photo below
The covers have been put back on the pitch this morning. They are not trying to protect the pitch from frost or the constant rain this time. Ian and Mick have covered the areas in an attempt to get the seed to take and force the grass to grow. It will take two weeks from now for the seed to be fully established.
By Saturday and the match against Mansfield the grass will showing the first signs of growth.
Mick has been repairing the bench seats in Main Stand this afternoon. He completed 9 and will be carrying out further changes over the next few days. The brackets holding the seats corrode and require new ones specially made. The club recently took delivery of a new batch and are repairing the broken ones - See photos below
