With the pitch

Considering we have four teams playing on it ours is like a bowling green in comparison :roll:

On reading the article the problems at Prenton Park mirror the problems RP suffered when County first moved there (in that the substructure of the pitch had deteriorated over time possibly because no long term ground maintenance measures had been carried out). Hopefully when the dig it up and relay the drainage it would be done correctly the first time and not need doing again the following year.

In conjunction with the police they were provided with the growing lamps seized in raids on illegal cannabis farms, these were then adapted and put onto mobile gantries as part of a project by the local technical college. A great idea and those lamps are still growing grass!

Take a bow , Sir !!!!

That , by far , is the best post I’ve seen on here for years !!!!

I can see the headlines now .....
“County pitch saved by cannabis farm equipment !! All squad players (including Lenny Lawrence) are on an all-time high !!”

We all love top-quality grass, but knowing County we'd make a hash of it and have a pitch covered in weed(s)...

Now added Wales U19s and Women's football fixtures in March and April, making it at least 5 teams now using RP. Ridiculous. God knows who else plays on it too. WRU should feature on the next McDonalds saver menu advert, certainly sweating the asset and giving the impression they are desperate for cash. 22 games in 11 weeks. Quite why FAW choose our crap pitch for representative fixtures is baffling.
