Elevating the Playing Surface

A Closer Look at Huntingdon Town Football Club’s Pitch Enhancement Process.  We are dedicated to providing our players with the best possible playing surface. As part of our ongoing commitment to excellence, we recently embarked on a comprehensive pitch enhancement project aimed at revitalising The Hunters Stadium ahead of the 2024/25 season.

The process began with careful planning and preparation. Our team of dedicated volunteers meticulously applied 400kg of premium grass seed, along with fertiliser and top-dressing soil, across the entire pitch. This meticulous application ensured that the seed was evenly distributed and had the best possible chance of germination.

The choice of grass seed was a critical aspect of the enhancement process. We selected a high-quality seed blend specifically tailored to our climate and playing conditions. This ensured that the grass would be able to thrive and withstand the rigors of regular play throughout the football season.

In addition to seeding, we took proactive measures to optimize the drainage system at The Hunters Stadium. By addressing any potential waterlogging issues, we aimed to create a playing surface that would remain playable even in inclement weather conditions.

Following the application of the grass seed, fertiliser, and top-dressing soil, our team activated the sprinkler system to provide much-needed hydration to the newly seeded pitch. This step is crucial for promoting germination and establishing strong, healthy turf growth.

As the weeks progress, we will continue to monitor the progress of the newly seeded pitch closely. Regular maintenance and care will be essential to ensure that the grass grows in thick and lush, providing our players with a surface that is not only visually appealing but also conducive to top-level performance.

Stay tuned for further updates on the progress of our pitch enhancement project at Huntingdon Town Football Club. We look forward to showcasing the results of our hard work when the new season kicks off!
