    New Pitch(at last!)

    A new pitch is been rolled out on the Showgrounds in time for the Derry game. The players finally refused to play on the pitch with the condition it's in so the club will be putting a new pitch in place tomorrow.

    Their will be that and more in my opinion. They've been given the blue stand and half of the railway end too. They'll have their own entrance too, same as last season.

    it's about time. is it costing much ? if not they could have done this ages ago instead of last min rush job. shouldnt take player pressure to get it done.

    but hey it's getting done, so well done to em for doing it at last

    Make sure they nail it down well in the corners.

    Seriously, though, judging by the way the lads played it around on the floor against Galway, a good surface is to our own advantage - although if someone could carry around stones and clumps of long grass to toss in front of McCourt, it would be good.

    Not a hope of this happening in 48 hours.

    For one why would they wait after three months of closed season to do it.

    TWO It would take between 4-6 weeks for the order to be sorted and contractors available to put in place.

    THREE Where would the money come from

    and FOUR It takes at least two to three weeks for the surface to bed in and thats when th weather isnt as bad as it is now.

    You only have to look at the fun and Games Birminhgam went through with their new pitch (costing 150,000) to see what relaying a pitch entails.

    According to the Derry forum, alot are put off by the kick off time and the extra hassle of St Patricks Day.

    Those posts are predominantly from one Supporters Club. I'd expect 500 odd.

    There is a parade in Grange after one o clock, Derry crowd would want to be down early to avoid that.

    We have lots of drums.

    It'll be a riot (figuratively).

    Well, the Grange people will be insisting that their parade goes down it's traditional route. I see a major stand off here - definitely a job for Tommy Gorman.

    New Pitch

    Quote 'I never heard of a pitch being laid and played on in such a short space of time...'

    Was in Wales on holidays last year and did a tour of the Millenium Stadium, it was the Thursday before the Charity Shield match between Chelsea and Liverpool and they were still rolling out the turf for the pitch, it was shipped in from Holland the night before. Total cost 100,000 pounds.

    They might roll the pitch, but it's impossible to lay a new pitch in that time frame. I'd say this is a wind up for Fenlon. F**k me, we can't get turnstiles or floodlights, I dont see how we can get a new pitch.
    I have scattered my dreams underneath your feet, tread carefully, cos it's my dreams you walk on.
