The Arden Garages Stadium pitch is looking in pristine condition ahead of the new season thanks to the acquisition of a top quality mower which has been funded by the Stratford Town Independent Supporters Association.
Offered to the club at a generous price of £2,600 the mower (pictured ) is similar to those used at cricket test match grounds, and given the obvious benefit of having such a useful item of equipment the Association were happy to provide the financial assistance required.
STISA Chairman Chris Simpson commented;
“This will give the club vital assistance to keep the pitch in as good a condition as possible and following on from the upgrade of the PA system this is exactly the type of project that the Association was set up to be involved in.”
Club director Mark Bickley added “The club is extremely grateful to STISA for their invaluable help in this respect without which we would not have been able to proceed. The pitch is not only looking good but the playing surface is fantastic we are all set for the big kick off in a few weeks time.”
