This week the official website reported of changes being made to the pitch down at Griffin Park.

The Great British weather as ever played a major part in the clubs plans for pitch 'renovations' taking place over the Summer.

After London Broncho's were forced to abandon Griffin Park as their home for the last couple of games during April and May, the head groundsman and Martin Allen both agreed that changes needed to be made to help the playing surface cope with the huge strain it recieves paticularily throughout the Winter months.

Tom Stobbart, Griffin Park's very own green fingers started his work this week with a heavy watering session to make sure the pitch didn't dry out during the Capital's heat wave.

The groundsman reported that because the pitch has never really been treated properley and the markings have always been made in the same place all the moisture is being taken off the pitch and towards the side lines, causing damage to the line marked areas.

He told the official website of the way in which he intends to improve the pitch before the start of the season and how his work will continue well into the month of July.
