Bristol Rovers Pitch Renovations: Bristol Rovers manager Darrell Clarke has praised the impressive work of the ground staff at the League One club who are going above and beyond to ensure the team have a world class playing surface this season.
The state of the Memorial Stadium pitch was a constant source of frustration last season for both the home and away sides with the turf badly cutting up at times.
However The Gas have taken dramatic steps to solve the problem, pulling up the old pitch after the final home game of the 2017/18 season and planting a new fibre one.
What the fibre does is reinforce the turf meaning it should not come up in clumps.
Talking about the new playing surface, Clarke said: “The Mem pitch is coming together really nicely. Again it is testament to the owners who have spent a fair bit of money on it.
“The ground staff have been working tremendously hard on it. I think Daryle [Sullivan] the groundsman even stayed at the ground for a week or so, sleeping at the ground, he has been working that hard.
