Shrewsbury Town have recently been relegated back to the Sky BET League Two, but preparations for next season are already underway.
The ground staff at the Greenhouse Meadow have been working hard to ensure the pitch is at a good quality for fourth tier football next season.
Head groundsman Richard Barnett and senior groundsman Andrew Muir have been working hard on the pitch and the training ground pitch behind the Salop Leisure Stand.
Head groundsman Richard Barnett said ”We scarified the pitch in four different directions to take all the dead vegetation and thatch out of the surface. Then we applied 20 tonnes of sand just to make it level before over seeding it with a Johnson’s Premier pitch seed. We then top dressed it with 40 tonnes of sand just to cover the seed.”
Richard added he was pleased how the pitch played last season and felt the surface was the best it’s been in the closing months of a season since the club moved to the new ground seven years ago.
New and hopefully promising actions are happening at Shrewsbury, with a new manager in place with Micky Mellon and now a new pitch to play on.
