The season may be over but the when the final delivery has been bowled this signals the start of preparations for the 2019 season.
Father Hayne, Tim Raisbeck and Steve Curtis have been hard at it, scarifying, fertilising, re-seeding and adding loam (not necessarily in that order). Add in a considerable amount of tidying up and storing away of kit, benches, nets and then readers will understand that this is no easy task.
Estimates suggest that it takes around 20 hours for a 1st XI pitch to be ready from first cut to final white line. That’s a lot of hours to get each pitch ready for play!
Thanks very much to our team of curators from all TCCC players.
