Watching Grass Grow Pleases Brown

13 May 2013

Groundsman Dave Brown gives us an update on the pitch renovation work at The Vic

The first signs of green are starting to appear on the Victoria Park playing surface as work continues on the summer makeover. 

Head Groundsman Dave Brown says he is happy with the early progress being made and is now hoping for temperatures to rise a little in the next few weeks. 

"It's pleasing to see the first shoots coming through and at the moment we are just trying to keep the pitch damp as that aids the growing," he explained. 

"Once we've had another bit of rain I will probably give it a feed and we'll hopefully see things kick on from there. 

"We could do with it getting a little warmer if possible to help things along but at the moment everything is looking in good shape."
