Winter 2017 is coming
Winter is definitely on it’s way and so that means the Sports & Stadia crew have been busy this week covering football, rugby and racing.
It was a wet north west last week when AFC Fylde played at home in the FA Cup on December 1st and managed to get themselves a well deserved replay at the DW Stadium. The MacLeod Cover was installed to ensure no chances were taken with their pitch which has had drainage issues in the past.
The threat of snow this weekend means MacLeod Covers have been put in flat at Sale Sharks and Newcastle Falcons to collect any snow that falls.
Frost covers are also down at Sandown Park Racecourse for the 2 day BetFair Tingle Creek Christmas Festival. 2 days means cover and recover twice. Friday will be a long day for our crew uncovering in the morning before racing and then recovering after the last race.
