Without being smart, I think God is doing the work by getting the grass to grow. What the future plans are I cannot say but if they have two new pitches coming on, I think they will be happy.

Looks like only the two pitches are being prepared. Anyone know if the development is being scaled back or is it just the way it's planned?

Taking shape anyway, which is good to see.

Im well aware that the grass has to grow on the pitches, but Im wondering that the work on dressing rooms etc. is not being done

Yea what is going on or rather not going on there. The whole place is boarded up. Not a hope of it being done this year. Co. Board need to get the finger out rapid.

that it is. a good idea but maybe the wrong time.. it ll have a knock on effect too for some clubs who allow the county board to train on there grounds - especially those with lights, as the wont get the revenue. but it ll cut down on counties running cost.
