Report by Alex Mackay
As previously reported on the Winterthur Cricket Club webiste, on Wednesday 26th February 2014, the Sportamt, Cricket & contractor reached the conclusion that Winterthur needs a new pitch.
We are pleased to be able to inform our members that the price agreed withNotts Sports has been paid in full and we are expected to take receipt of the new artificial grass pitch and associated underlayers on 24th April.
This will allow the contracted company to carry out the work before the end of April and it is expected that our new pich will be ready for the first game of the season, a friendly against Nomads on 1st May 2014.
The cost of the new pitch (including porto) has come to ca. CHF7'500, to be shared between the three clubs in Winterthur over the next couple of years.
