Just come back from Crigg . I realise what you're saying about pitches , but the way the weather has been lately , the grass is obviously loving it . Our pitches got cut a couple of weeks ago ( council- not cheap either ) - but weren't done very well to say the least & so 3 of us have spent about 3 hours cutting the half way line, touch line etc. grass and then marking out the pitch . It's not ideal by any means , but at least the game will be on ok .
that's the problem with the council, not that they don't do a good job but more of the back log that they have to continue with and I far bet did a brisk up and down job so will look poor and leave stalks standing everywhere, been there and done that with my lawn so I do understand as the reason I cut when I can now and its far easier
ever thought of taking your responsibility to cutting the pitch at your own club?
