Re: The One Show

The piece started with interviewing Paul Ashcroft, head groundsman at Arsenal, and stating that it was reputably the best playing pitch. He put this down to the construction, including a plastic fibre and limited useage.

'Milk Ad' cued change of ground where Rob Heys was interviewed re problems. The toll taken by weather, one groundsman, limited equipment and money.

Myerscough College featured next with students discussing pitch structure followed by the problems at Wembley being put down to overuse.

Finally back to Rob Heys being presented with a book from the Emirate's Stadium entitled "Grow Your Own Pitch!"

Hope there was a section in the book about growing your own players, ah but maybe not if it came from Arsenal
