Re: Great Harwood Town FC

Anthony has been groundsman for quite a bit now and there is no dout that he is capable of doing it.
Just walk past the IES soon and see what the pitch is looking like now, its fantastic, and all down to our "young" anthony

Talking of fixtures.. If the NWCL fixtures are out before ours then how does that work in our favour?

Are there any Great Harwood fans on this MB?
We (Skem) ground shared with Burscough a couple of seasons ago, due to us getting a new stadium.. You have nothing to worry about, Accy will have full priority and GH and the NWCL will work around your fixtures. We even had to play an FA cup game on a Sunday, it is workable

I have information from inside the club that Jim retired several months ago. Even so he has put a lot of years into the club & laid the base for Anthony to continue with. I remember him telling me when he first took over that the ground was so bad there weren't even any worms in the soil to aerate the pitch. Surely he deserves more than just a quiet demise from the club. Thanks Jim from me & I am sure many other long term supporters who have viewed Jims contribution to the club.

Re: Great Harwood Town FC

To be honest when I first came to Stanley I was astonished at the fine quality of the pitch. I remember asking Mick who was the groundsman at the time (around Christmas) so I could give him a mention on the radio. Stanley are unbeaten at home in 2005 and I fel the standard of the pitch has a lot to with it. It could rival any league club and long may it continue because nobody wants to see or play football on a poor surface. I think Mr Shaw will be badly missed if he has gone.

Yep he will be, BUT if you look at the pitch from Christmas last season and the start of this season you be sure to say its in 'safe hands'...
