Fields have an annual program of seed, fertilizer, aeration and weed control.
All fields were re-seeded at the end of the fall season but with one of the coldest Marches on record, the grass is still dormant and seed is yet to germinate.
The 8v8 field has historically had drainage problems. We have added drainage in last month. Top soil will be trucked in to improve the playing surface.
In the last year we have assigned Simon Wilshaw to work closely with Yuriy to optimize our facility.
