Pitch Sprayer Project
Our Head Groundsman approached the BWDA to ask if the Committee (consisting of three members of staff and five dedicated fans) would consider purchasing a new sprayer for the pitch.
The club have had the current sprayer for a number of years and, having been repaired several times, has now come to the end of its life.
With two concerts planned for the close season, which inevitably affects the state of the pitch, Chris and his team would only have a few weeks to get the pitch back in to tip top condition for the start of the season, so the BWDA acted quickly and agreed to purchase the sprayer.
It arrived within a matter of days and as soon as the concerts were over, work began on getting the pitch ready for the start of the season.
Nick, our Senior Groundsman, can be seen modelling the new sprayer.
The pitch was in excellent condition when we played our first home game of the 2018/19 campaign against Bristol City, thanks to the hard work of the groundstaff and you, the lottery members, for helping to provide them with the equipment they needed.
