Players at Wirral Rugby Club on Merseyside are benefiting from the recently completed drainage works by leading natural sportsturf contractor Souters Sports.

The specialist contractor, based in both Cumbernauld, just north of Glasgow and Knutsford in Cheshire, was awarded the project after a competitive tender process following the club's drainage problems that they had on one of their pitches and also training area/cricket outfield which used to get waterlogged and resulted in numerous cancelled games.

The works included the piped drainage and sand slitting of the first XV pitch and cricket outfield.

Sand topdressing, verti-draining, weed control, overseeding and fertiliser application completed the work at the club, which was completed on budget and within the tight time schedule.

In addition Souters Sports helped to source and supply a new galvenized spectator fence to surround the pitch and also made sockets to allow one side to be taken down during the cricket season.

Souters Sports' in house labour and specialist drainage plant combined with their ability to provide a high quality service was a key factor in securing the contract and working with leading independent sportsturf consulting agronomy company, Professional Sportsturf Design (NW) on yet another successfully completed project.

Souters Sports are firmly established as one of the UK’s leading specialist sportsturf contractors providing sports ground construction, land drainage and sports pitch renovation services. Founded in 2000 by Managing Director Stewart Aird, the company has benefited from a policy of continual investment, expansion and diversification with experience ranging from national stadiums to local authority sports pitches.

Six senior sides, an under-21‘s, Colts’ and Junior Colts’ sides and a flourishing Mini Rugby Section all play at the Old Wirralians’ Association Memorial Ground and since the drainage works have been completed; have not complained of one cancelled game.

The company has recently completed extensive drainage projects at some of the UK’s top venues including Gleneagles, the venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup.

"There is nowhere to screw a grease tube on. That's why you need to take the gearbox cover off and apply grease directly.
 Suggest you take another look at the machine. We know this is correct thing to do as we have 4 of them. "

"This is the battery hsa 86 Nick it only has 2 torx screws holding a plastic casing over the gearbox, the gearbox gets the odd bit of cuttings in which is not ideal as it is not sealed like the petrol ones."

"Agree Vic it's very impressive and high end quality. But my point is that as they use as stated "a lot of semi-conductors", then there is a good chance some of those were made in China. I see nothing wrong with that, Shenzen is top end when it comes…"
