Pitches suffer after a hard winter

Passed through sunny Bacup today and had the chance of popping in to visit Borough's ground at the top of the hill.

Bacup Borough still have tons of games in hand on everyone else in the North West Counties League Premier Division due to all the postponements during the winter.

I was a tad surprised to witness some radical action from the groundsman.

The pitch looked somewhat different to my last visit here?

Looks like Borough have got rid of the notorious waterlogging problem by investing in a few bags of sand. Looks a lot more 'playable' than normal though!
