In what signals an end of an era and a start of a new one, the pitch at The New Saints’ Park Hall Stadium, has today began to be ripped up, ready to be replaced.
The pitch will be replaced ahead of the 2015/2016 season, with the first fixture to be played on the new pitch set to be the UEFA Champions League tie in early July.
Workers have today began work on the removal of the current pitch, which is estimated will take a couple of days. Following that, work on the new state of the art 3G pitch can begin.
Many goals, wins and memorable moments have taken place on the pitch, which has now been used for eight years.
