More Info

Again in answer to some questions, the club have no permanent arrangement with Hythe to play our home games there although with great thanks to Hythe we are very grateful for their help in staging these fixtures.

The new pitch has been worked on extensively since my last update and the rubber crumb is at last starting to penetrate to the base of the grass which is its intended position.
Some snagging has been forthcoming but nothing serious.

The work party that was at Homelands on Saturday made good progress with the painting whilst the pitch crew continued with the crumb rubber installation.

Many thanks from all at the work party for the bacon and sausage sandwiches and generous amounts of tea to keep us all going.

As things become clearer on the timing of the pitch readiness I will update as things develop. I can confirm that the pitch testing is scheduled for the 11th September.
