Over recent weeks the amount of rain has made the pitches at West Bridgford RFC virtually unplayable with areas of the pitches looking more like a swamp than a pitch!
However last night the team to actions into their own hands, forking the pitch and puddles in the worst hit areas, airing the ground to allow the water to drain before laying sand and soil to help improve the quality of the playing surface.
All of this is in an effort to get the pitches playable ahead of a big weekend of rugby at the Memorial Ground on Stamford Road in West Bridgford.
