The six-figure project had been signed off to commence last summer before plans were postponed after the season had been paused as the UK dealt with the Covid-19 pandemic.

MJ Abbott carried out a full reconstruction of the pitch, comprising:

    • Excavation and disposal of 450mm depth from existing pitch area
    • Cut and fill earthworks to create sub base and new pitch levels
    • Installation of drainage, irrigation and undersoil heating systems
    • Import and spread new gravel raft, lower sand and upper rootzone layers
    • Preparation and seeding of pitch surface
    • Installation of SISGrass hybrid pitch reinforcement system

 The project was supervised by Andy Cole of iTurf Management.
