    With no real rain in the forecast, is anybody thinking about irrigation? While I’d be surprised if many pitches needed water to stay alive just yet, a groundsman vanity is a curious thing. No doubt the turf would respond very nicely to a little water, especially any new seedlings, With zero play to accommodate is the extra time and cost worth it? Height of cut could be raised and frequency reduced to ease the stresses. With this dry period seed heads and stalks will become prevalent. No problem for a rotary mower, but those with gang mowers or cylinders, a real pain. With the cost of water on the increase(somewhere around £2 a cubic metre) 1000ltrs maybe a wetting agent would be useful? Put VERY simply wetting agents, make water, wetter!! These applied with a liquid seaweed spray, can have a real positive effect while using less water. Quite expensive though, and most need to be sprayed. Paul. If budgets allow, try and time all processes together. Spiking first will give the seed somewhere to go, and allow any dressings to key together with the surface, sometimes if sand is just applied to top, it will create its own layer. Better to mix(key) it to existing soil. If it’s to be an annual event, sand is the way to go, however, if it’s a one off event, try and source a 70/30 top dressing mix. A 30 tonne load is somewhere around £1000 ( I know what your thinking. SHIT, a grand!!) There’s a contractor down my way called Andrew Sandow. Sorry don’t have a number. But he’s decent. Or for materials try BHGS, formally JFC Munro’s. Make sure you speak to Andrew janman. Nobody else in there has a clue!!

    Any truth in the rumour that Older is going to release a record? I've heard it's going to be a remake of Tom Jones hit The Green, Green Grass of Home.

    Hello Paul. There's a quarry not far from you that does sports sand...topdress with that to level your pitch buddy. About 40 /50 tons would be good. I think the number is 01726 822381 or 823695

    If I can work the system , I'm not very good with modern technology , I'll send £25 . I get a lot of pleasure out of this forum , it's odd communicating with people that I'll never meet and exchanging views on the future of grassroots football from people 400 miles away . I say I'll never meet but I might invest in a cup and some tea bags in case I meet Older tending to his pitch if and when I get down again .

    This probably isn't funny but it's my modern day version of an old joke Roy Rogers the famous singing cowboy is riding across the plains playing his guitar . A company of cavalry ride up .the Captain is like , hey dude are you Roy Rogers the famous cowboy . Roy Rogers is like absolutely , the captain is like wow awesome give me five man . Roy is like did you want me ?, the Captain is like yeah dude , a bit of like bad news a group of native Americans have burnt down your ranch . Roy is like wow man that's bad news and sags in his saddle . The Captain is like it gets worse dude they killed all your cattle . Roy is like wow that's not cool I'm like ruined , all my money was like in the ranch and cattle , he starts to sob . The Captain is like , there's more , they've also wiped out your entire family . Roy is like gee man that's the end , it's like the worst news you could give me . The Captain is like I'm sorry to tell you dude , we'll leave you to get back to the rest of your life , you have a nice day now . Roy rides off in a state of shock , the Captain stops the patrol and is like hey Roy , Roy turns and the Captain is like Roy give us a song before you go . This sounds pathetic but this is the sort of grammar we will have in the future . Weather hot still Older but rain possible tomorrow . I've been experimenting with spraying a weak sea weed liquid on some plants , be interesting to see the results ( he said reverting to proper English .)

    Good news for our football league , we've got a new team entered next season . They are a team made up of people with dyslexia . They've called the team Dyslexia Untied . Employees play football , middle management play tennis , C.E.O's play golf . It's seems the higher up the chain of command the smaller the balls . A Norwich City fan was arrested for throwing stones in the river after a home defeat . At court the magistrate said to the Police Officer " this seems a rather trivial offence to bring before the court , a man arrested for merely throwing stones in the river , honestly whatever next ? " The officer replied " Mr. Stones was the match referee your worships " I should have these 3 pathetic jokes separate entries to catch up to Billy Davies . Weather hot and overcast here Older , land dry and in need of rain .
