Work starts on the Spectrum Pitch

After a short delay work finally gets underway on Monday to rectify the severe drainage problems in a corner of the Spectrum pitch. Whilst the work is underway we will be playing a series of away matches before returning home to play Camberley Town on Saturday 28 November. For those interested in the more technical aspects of the job in hand Jonathan Sewell, the Leisure Services Manager at Guildford Borough Council, had this to say.

β€œIn the end we had to commission a ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey to establish what drainage systems were already installed. The GPR has given us a better idea of what is there but it didn’t give us a completely definitive answer. It did indicate that our original plan would have potentially duplicated systems already there. Fortunately it is clear enough to indicate that the pitch will benefit from a sand banding process. This has been ordered and is scheduled to commence 2nd November, weather permitting. This process is being applied to the entire pitch and is designed to make the existing drainage system work as they should do. Sand banding takes four to five days to complete and then the Parks team will commence their element. I cannot completely guarantee that this will solve all the issues but it is costing a substantial sum and I’m very hopeful it will. It certainly should significantly improve on the current situation.”

Guildford City have a free Saturday this weekend and are next in action at Bedfont Sports on Saturday 7 November, kick-off at 3pm.
