The fixtures came out today and everyone is starting to plan their travel, weekends and matches.
We had an away day from the Abbey and carried out some work at the training ground and at the house where the players stay. This was done in time for when they return to training. It's doesn't seem too long ago since the final whistle blew against Port Vale and now we are looking forward to our next encounter with them
Alan and Emma stayed at the ground and started on more painting projects. The Habbin panels have now been done, however we do need to still have to wash & clean the black panels on the Habbin South. I am really pleased that Emma painted the gate by the press box. It has irritated me since last July when we did the press box, so getting it done is another tick in the box
Big thank you for the person who donated and paid for the Habbin panel paint. We would like to get some more gloss and if anyone would like to donate towards the cost please contact me via the form below. It cost ~ 50 pounds for a tin of Amber paint. We want to paint the accessible stand panels to match everywhere else as it now really stands out. We also want to get some white masonary paint for the main stand bench seat areas. We would if everything goes well also like to paint the back of the Habbin white before the start of the season.
While at the Abbey the bridge across the brook started to be be repaired by Mead Construction. The needs to be completed before the season and was highlighted in the ground report. It will take several days to complete and the metal fabrication will start to arrive tomorrow.
Alan is painting the tunnel backs Amber to make them stand out. The first coat on the middle tunnel looked good and will look great when all three are done
The pitch is Ian and Mick's main agenda item now and getting it ready for the Millwall match
