DW Stadium
 DW Stadium   by Mick Byrne  (Sony T700)
Photo taken last week, the DW Stadium being re-turfed.

Re-turfed again, that's what you get when Rugby and Football share the same stadium. The pitch has no time to recover after each match. Should never have sold Central Park, and what for, another supermarket???

Must change my specs ha ha did not know turf was brown,bet it looked nice when finished.


Comment by Fred Mason on 6th March 2010 at 12:35
Hey, Peterp,

Turf is not brown, it's green, mate. They must have been Irish and layed it upside down..!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a Wiganer living a long way from Wigan since 1966, perhaps you can verify some information that I have been given regarding the Wigan Rugby
club and Central Park. I was told that the board, in charge of the Wigan Rugby club amassed debts of around 12 million pounds and the only way to balance the books was to sell Central Park.
Is this Correct? If it is, then what price heritage? As for the board members, they should be left to hang by the "you know what's"!
If it isn't, then I would like to know why Central Park was sold at all, it doesn't make any sense to me.

Good photo Mick as that could come up a few times over the coming years as not many would think of taking a photo of the place being re-turfed then uploading it on WW


Comment by Les Bagg on 6th March 2010 at 18:25
Don't think it's got much to do with two sports being played on it, may have a little more to do with the ground being built on t'Gant!!

Hull rugby and football share the same stadium and their pitch has time to recover.


Comment by Mick on 6th March 2010 at 19:07
Man who was doing said it was done two years ago and it it will need doing every two years because the ground is sinking because it built on the top of big tank and when it wet the water comes up.

He also said its got nothing to do with two sports being played on, but he did say the worse thing for damaging the grass are these new boots with blades on them

Hull city pitch has been re-laid a number of times, and is now in a poor condition.


Comment by Roy on 10th March 2010 at 15:45
It was re-laid last June if my memory serves me right.
