The pitch upgrade commenced at the end of October and involved the installation of additional new sub-soil drainage installed and re-grading to the sub-surface.

Another 10-12 weeks (approx.) of growing time for the newly sown Rye Grass was then needed to establish the surface to be ready for playing matches on.
