Pitch to be relaid

Pitch to be relaid

The pitch at the JJB is being relaid at a cost of £100,000 today in preparation for the next home match against Charlton Athletic on the 17th of December.

A £190,000 pitch cover has also been purchased to protect the grass as it settles in and to prevent damage in the future.

Dave Whelan said 'Paul is very pleased because he said it was a little bit difficult and bobbly on Saturday, but we've now got an opportunity to get it sorted. We're doing everything we can to make sure the pitch is in tip top condition.'
