Yeadon's players and club members have been hard at work today installing a new drainage system.

It was identified as a priority when the club completed the purchase of the White Swan ground last year.

Club groundsman Andrew Pickering said: "We have had a problem with drainage for a number of years and now.

"Many of the old drains had collapsed or become blocked so we knew we had to do something about it.

"We looked at the costs of installing drainage systems and decided the most cost efficient was to do it ourselves.

"We are installing two main drains across the ground at the scorebox and pavilion ends of the ground with lots of smaller drains branching off them.

"We believe it will do the trick and give us a drier ground than in recent years when our outfield has tended to hold the water whenever there has been heavy rain."


If your club is working on improving its facilities please let us know and we will feature it on the website
