New Astro surface has arrived!


The SIS team started to lay and join the new rolls of green astro carpet today.  This will take several days and will be followed by the blue surround – marked on the photos by a white dashed line.  Whilst some lines are pre-stitched (the lines that run across the pitch), the “Ds”, P Spot, etc  (and most football markings) are cut and inserted once the complete surface has been laid.

After all that, 80 tons of sand will be used to dress the pitch – it also stops it from blowing away!
