The pitch looked great after the last game so not sure why it had to be relaid this time, but agreed it looks good.

I'm pretty certain the groundstaff will no more than most of us on here about the upkeep of the pitch, and any reasons for relaying it each season

If it’s not been relaid, what has been done to it? I’m guessing reseeding, although, I’m only an expert at growing weeds and know sweet FA about football pitches.  :lol:

Passmarks. Every day's a schoolday! Relaid suggests placing of turf to form the playing surface.

 

As much as it looked and certainly played as the best surface, there was issues. The investment and expertise of those involved should make a good product even better. Kudos.

We're re-laying the old turf on the roof and Community Trust will rent it out for "Extreme Five Aside".

Just seen the pics on the Twitter feed with the roof off you can see how bad the structure is, I hope they are treating the rust and giving it a new paint job as well.

Yes, Alan Burrows mentioned it in the interview he did for the MFC YouTube channel that went up at the end of the season.
