I've just been past the ground. It is totally dug up.

Don't worry, I don't think we're getting a 4G one! 😉

Have they just took the top few inches off as per normal?  or have they gone deeper this time

Pretty sure it's a light skim rather than a deep dig overall. It would make sense there might be some deeper bits dug to investigate issues though.

From what I could see it looked like a light skim. There is a JCB on site though.

How is it looking now? I haven't been in WA15 for a few weeks, with pre season starting to nudge I'd be interested to know.  Could David Jones give a quick 5 mins video?

Come on Alty.

I saw a photo somewhere last week - possibly on the club's Facebook page, but I can't remember for sure. The pitch was a lush green, so I guess it should be playable for the pre-season games.

I think it was on the official media site that the grass has been given its first cut.

The newly laid pitch is growing well and looks good after its first cut..
