Both the Football club and the Supporters club would like to thank Gasheads this evening for turning out on a cold morning today to help remove the frost covers.The covers went on with some very fierce frost predicted for the weekend and even snow being a possibility. As you can see from the picture, we had a covering of snow on Friday morning, so keeping the pitch covered was essential.
I spoke with Head Groundsman Pete Prior today who was delighted with the turnout. ” I got here early today to organise getting the covers off for an early pitch inspection. I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by a good number of people waiting to help, with more following shortly after” he said. He continued; “There were the usual faces but what was equally rewarding was to see a few new faces. I cannot thank them enough for their help which showed true Gashead spirit, particlualy in view of how cold it was this morning.”
All in all, 22 Gasheads turned up to help and because there was such a good turnout, it was made all the quicker. Helpers were given a spot of breakfast by way of bacon sandwiches and coffee as a thankyou from the football club. We hope if needed we can call on you again this season should the need arise.
