The season of autumn and winter meetings for the Lincolnshire Cricket Groundsmen’s Association is set to start on Wednesday, October 23 at Lincoln Lindum CC at 7.30pm.

The first speaker is Laurence Gayle, editor of Pitchcare magazines and website. Laurence has wide-ranging knowledge and opinions of all sports.

“For this reason, the Association is issuing an open invitation to grounds managers of all sports to come along to listen and engage with a leading industry figure who is expected to provide an evening of lively debate,” said a spokesperson.

“The cost of a season’s membership to the Lincolnshire CGA is £10 which includes all meetings. These will feature some of the industry’s top representatives, one of whom is Steven Pask, the principal contractor for the main test grounds, including Lords,

“Visits from other county groundsmen and trips to visit major stadiums are also planned, providing excellent advice and tips to the county’s groundsmen and making the subscription very good value for money,” they added.

Regular information on the grounds industry and the county association can be found on the CGA’s dedicated webpage, or by contacting ECB Pitch Advisor and Lincolnshire CGA Chairman Martin Deans at
