We are now in a position to issue a further communication regarding the club’s ongoing plans for the future of the pitch…
Following the postponement of the Fleetwood Town game, a decision has been taken to relay a new pitch at the Crown Oil Arena.
We have been in communication with contractors throughout the week and preparatory work had taken place prior to the scheduled Fleetwood fixture in the eventuality that the game should fall foul of the weather. Plans will now be put into action immediately.
Work will commence on Saturday evening and will be finished in time for next weekend’s Emirates FA Cup fifth round against Tottenham Hotspur.
We share the disappointment of supporters for today’s postponement but would like to assure everyone this decision has been taken to allow us to fulfil next weekend’s game and to give Keith Hill and his players the opportunity to fulfil the remainder of the league campaign on a surface we can all be proud of.
