New cricket pitch at FCC! Week 2

New cricket pitch at FCC!  Following up on last weeks report where we picked the new mat up from Ventnor CC

This week preparations began on getting everything ready to lay it at our home ground on ‘west wight sports centre’ in moa place, Freshwater. The first stage was to find the edges of our current mat and cut back the turf ready for removal. In attendance with shovels this week were Graham Gosden, Neil Pitman, Steve Priddle, Jason Swain, Richard Routledge and Sam Vandecastile.

Exciting photos of men with shovels below…

Next week, Sat, 30th March, we will be attempting to lift off the mat, fit new rails, and level off and compact the aggregate, come along and join in if you can, many hands make light work.
