Work Starts At Planters Park

As all the games are now finished on the pitch at Planters Park the process now starts to get the surface in top class condition for the start of the 2015/16 season.

A massive amount of work goes into this each summer which helps us reap the rewards with our passing attacking style of football which we always try and play.

A few pictures of the work starting:
