Pitch renovations in progress

Work starts early on Meadow Lane surface

15 April 2020

With no football expected to take place for the foreseeable future, we have this week commenced our annual pitch renovation at Meadow Lane.

The National League season has been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak and, while no possible return date has been suggested by the league, we have taken the opportunity to carry out essential works on our playing surface.
 
Our CEO, Jason Turner, said: “I would like to assure supporters that our decision to renovate the pitch does not signal the end of our season. We still await clarity on the future of the 2019-20 campaign and remain in regular dialogue with the relevant parties to establish what lies ahead.
 
“While we had planned a more extensive renovation this summer, the uncertainty over our longer-term scheduling means we feel it’s best we carry out some basic work now to ensure we have a suitable surface for the year ahead.
 
“Everyone can rest assured that the pitch will be ready to facilitate competitive football when the authorities deem it safe to return, and I’d like to thank our groundstaff and contractors for their continued hard work during these challenging times.”
 
Meadow Lane remains closed for all other business, with key staff continuing to remotely operate our usual opening hours. Phone lines have been diverted where possible. Click here for all contact information.
