The pitch proves to be the star of the match


Despite losing 1-0 to Birmingham City in last night’s FA Cup third round replay, Wolverhampton Wanderers had one thing to be proud of – their pitch. Throughout his commentary, Jim Belgin could not praise the Molineux surface highly enough. 
 
The Fibrelastic pitch from Mansfield Sand was installed in the Summer of 2010, together with a Fibrelastic training pitch. The totally natural turf surface on top of the fibre reinforced Rootzone has now created a resilient surface that puts player comfort first.

No grounds for concern at Molineux thanks to Fibrelastic

Despite the season being at the midway stage and the winter at its peak, the Molineux pitch is still looking in top condition. However, the same couldn’t be said the same time last year as despite a £1 million investment the pitch was performing below par.

Head groundsman Wayne Lumbard explained, “It was a brand new pitch at the time but we had a few teething problems which only presented themselves during the worst of the winter weather.

“To rectify the problem we have taken the top 15 millimetres off the pitch and added another 15 mm of a more concentrated mix of sand and soil to make it firmer. We worked with M J Abbott, a local firm, and Fibrelastic to get the best mix possible. It has mixed really well, growing in with the roots, and the grass is now growing really well,” adds Wayne.

With only another four games between now and March, which is when the grass will recover and start to grow again, Wayne is confident the Fibrelastic pitch will remain in the best possible condition for the rest of the season.
