The Pitch
« on: August 12, 2020, 05:46:13 PM »
Looking at the various Photoís of the Walks  have to say thatís the best I can ever remember it looking.

Big well done to Steve Curtis. He must have pumped 000ís of gallons onto that of late.

The camera never lies.  So they say.  Well the pitch looked good from a distance but apparently it is a total mess.   Weeds, bald patches... all this despite having 50k spent on it during the summer.

The powers that be at the club are furious with the state of it.

Many have seen it GS. Itís no big secret.  What has gone wrong after all that money the Chairman coughed up to get it to the standard that IC needed.   Sure looks a poor return on investment

Just seen the opening round of fixtures have been released for the Reserves.    Opening day (5th Sept). At home to Framlingham.   Will this game be played on the Walks pitch or is there a first team friendly there that day ?

Reports from people that have seen it this evening is that it could be major issues!  :dontknow:
Don't stop and never give up. If you have achieved all your objectives, you have set your targets too low!

On the live streaming the pitch didnít look great and seemed to be cutting up over in places.  If thatís at 40k spent on it then it doesnít look much of an investment.
