Pitch Inspection at St Peter Ahead of Nottingham Clash

A RFU official will inspect the Jersey RFC pitch at St Peter at 10am on Friday morning ahead of Saturday's Greene King IPA Championship fixture against Nottingham.

Pitch Inspection


Heavy rain in Jersey in recent days, on top of the Island's fifth wettest January on record, has prompted the home club to arrange the inspection. Opponents Nottingham have been kept fully informed of the situation, with the inspection scheduled ahead of their scheduled departure time for a 3.30pm flight from Birmingham.

Jersey RFC Chairman Bill Dempsey said: "Our first team pitch has been considerably more robust this season after the remedial work to the drainage system that was carried out last summer. We also carried out a 'verti-drain' procedure on Monday. While this leaves us hopeful that the game can go ahead, it's not possible to water-proof any grass pitch and we have experienced some very severe weather in the past two weeks.

"We are mindful of Nottingham's travel schedule and the RFU regulations, and consequently have arranged that one of the Assistant Referees for Saturday's game will be flying across early on Friday morning in order to carry out the inspection."
