The 2020/2021 season has been extremely challenging for all Clubs in relation to their pitches but, as ever, ground staff have produced some fantastic work throughout the campaign.
Carrying out a tremendously important job to prepare their respective pitches for matches and maintain them throughout the calendar, things were made more difficult this season due to the lack of time to carry out pitch maintenance and renovations at the end of the 19/20 season, along with the intense fixture schedule for this season following the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020.
As the 2020/21 campaign draws to a close, grounds teams up and down the country have been recognised for their continued commitment and efforts.
