For those of you interested, apparently there is a man on a Mower on the Pitch at this very moment!   :scarf:

Surely Adam that was the target at the start of the season.  Nothing has changed.  All that's happened is The Chairman has given the main man more tools to make it happen.   Reach for the Moon, if you miss it you will hopefully land amongst the Stars.

Do you mean Saddlebow?

I wonder what Buster would make of things at The Walks. For many years the Speedway has drawn the bigger crowds. The winds of change are approaching ?

Amazing post was looking to make a comment about the PITCH so went to this page ! would it be possible Admin to ask posters to
keep to the headed subject ?
Anyway the point I wanted to make was a reference to last nights game and that Hyde have a plastic pitch, how true the ball ran for
the passing game that Lynn try to play. I know the outlay is great but the returns well managed would be worth it commercially, be interested in all comments.  :scarf:

3g pitches are great the only issue is with Mr Cleeves ambition for league 2 football  the efl don't allow 3g pitches and we would only be able to play up to national league, it's a bizarre rule because your aloud them in the FA Cup and like last night you can face efl clubs or Premier league clubs as like Sutton did last year playing arsenal on a 3g surface.

Here you go West lynn, think you'll find it was raised as far back as beginning of Oct. A few could forsee the problems back then that you have now  :freezing: :freezing:

A good team can play on any pitch.

Who is the groundsman now?
We have not had a good pitch since Maurice was the groundsman I know he was elderly but he provided us with a pitch that you could play football on in all weathers.

The pitch will always be an issue because it's situated in the Walks which has a high water table. So; the options are 1) move out of town, and the Council to sell the Walks for housing development (Note ; this would need an Act of Parliament !) plus where's the cash to come from to build a new stadium ?! 2) install a 3G pitch but where is 250K approx. needed to buy it ? 3) ask for guidance from ground staff at Carrow Road and spend money we don't have next summer to implement their recommendations 4) only let the 1st team play on it ? or 5) do nothing and just "get on with it".
It's a conundrum for sure.

A high water table is not the issue, by its nature, generally, an area of high water level is normally surrounded by good drainage options as seen in the Walks area with the Gaywood river  close by and directed to the Ouse..Other land in the walks vicinity is in better shape then the football ground. Attleborough may have a different problem but it is far from the Walks where football has previously had , a ever great but, better playing facility. Work the pitch and location and football can remain for many an year, NO EXCUSES....

Decent drainage was put in place during the eighties,in fact if you walk past the end of the ground you can see the water draining off. I think that the major problem is that there has been no major work carried out on the pitch for about 40 years,ideally it needs digging up and relaying by professionals, then being rested over the summer by arranging just away friendlies. Perhaps a quote could be obtained and funds raised by getting a sponsor per square metre,sponsors name could go in a corresponding square on a board in the bar? With maybe a premium price for centre circle and penalty spots?  :dontknow:
"If a window was broken or a drain was blocked up, someone was certain to say that Grissles had come in the night and done it, and when the key of the store-shed was lost, the whole farm was convinced that Grissles had thrown it down the well. Curiously enough, they went on believing this even after
