Tom Flintoft visits NCU grounds


Tom Flintoft, the ex Durham and Hampshire groundsman, visited the NCU area on the 6th and 7th April to give advice to club and school groundsmen.

Among the clubs and schools he visited were Bangor (including Ward Park), Bangor GS, CIYMS, Campbell College, Civil Service, B.R.A. / Castle Grounds, Shaw’s Bridge, Muckamore, Templepatrick, Mallusk, Carrick, Downpatrick, Millpark, Lurgan and Derriaghy.

This was an extremely useful visit this year with all the clubs, schools and grounds-men getting a lot out of the visit while Tom in particular was also pleased and said that he can see an improvement every year.
