Day 24 Thursday 31 May - Laying the mat
We re-join the action following the Bank Holiday weekend. To achieve the required levels more sand had to be delivered. This meant that smoothing out the surface continued through parts of Tuesday and Wednesday.
Early on the morning of Wednesday 30 May a container full of rolls of matting was delivered to site. The container was unloaded by hand and work began on laying the mat on the Shed side of the pitch. Rolls are laid lengthways along the pitch. By Thursday afternoon about a third of the pitch had been covered in matting.
