Update from Paul Tatton (Chairman of the Lancashire Groundsman's Association) about November / December advice on cricket ground maintenance.

Close season ground activities are ongoing and will follow some repeat suggestions from last month:

1. Early morning drag brushing,  always a candidate to get the leg muscles active.

2. Solid punch tineing to 100/120 mls. when conditions are favourable i.e. not too wet or no frost.

3. “Top off” square to 20/25 mls. preferably with sharp rotary mower (light footprint).

4. Keep wet leaves off the cricket square.

5. If fences allow consider verti-draining the outfield by recommended contractor, again when conditions allow. Cost  approximately £275-£300 depending upon acreage.

Have a relaxing Xmas and a productive New Year.

Yours Truly,

Paul Tatton
