It is a total waste of money unless they are going to do other works as well. Ive mentioned before when I spoke to some of the rugby players and were talking about the pitch after it was relaid last year and to a man they basically said it was no better under foot but looked better because it had grass on it.

did they ask their employers what they were going to do about it?

The pitch needs to bed like it needed to bed last year and isn't going to improve underfoot without keeping off it and allowing it to bed

Which won't happen unless both teams move out for a season.

The latest Tractor Production Numbers were announced by our Chancellor last week He was being interviewed pitchside at Old Trafford, parts of the pitch were under skunk growing lights. Would that get the Shay pitch to bed that bit quicker?

5 weeks for the work to be done and bedded in , isn't this the same scenario as last season , remember it being said that it wasn't long enough , ideally the work should be done and the first game should be our first home game of next season.

With these mini leagues then the rugby could still be using the pitch when the football season starts ,its bad enough it overlaps now.

I have heard similar, you mean land next to the cricket club at the top of Tuel Lane above Sowerby High, where the school once used the footy pitches known as top tec?

Not really a great spot to have one

hardly flat

played there many times at school, and out of school - many years ago of course, maybe it's flatter now  ;)

Do the school not use them now?

from the fax forum, some interesting details in this conversation between bubba & "faxcar"

 

BUBBA:
"Last summer they put mini drains down the length of the pitch. This summer they are putting them across the width which will tie in with the length ways and supposedly make huge improvements. We shall see."


FAXCAR:
"Effectiveness will depend on the type of drainage.

If the mini drainage is of the soak away type it works but not as well as traditional drainage, basically the pipes typically have small pre made holes in them that allows any water to slowly seep through them from the surrounding soil into the pipe and then to gradually drain away into the surrounding land or into the water drainage systems.

Draw backs are the holes often get clogged up and the water doesn't get through as well over time and the amount of fall on the pipes especially at these lengths is minimal.

If it empties into surrounding land that can soon become saturated itself so is not very effective, if it's into a proper underground drainage system then it is much better.

Depending what is there you can usually have top water going into a top water and sometimes a shared top water and foul water system but you can't have foul water going into a top water system.

I would have thought Yorkshire Water would be the controlling authority down at the Shay they will know what can and can't be done as will the Borough Engineers."


BUBBA:
"There is good main drainage from the pitch into the sewer it is just a case of joining up the new drains that they install this summer into the main drain."

Nothing flat about it. Many potholes as well. Would need lots of work done to bring it up to scratch. Rugby PE lessons are taken up there. Some athletics too
