Owls host Sky Sports

24 June 2015

The Owls hosted Sky Sports this morning as work on the club’s brand new Desso pitch gathers pace.

The summer-long process began following Wednesday’s final home game of last season against Leeds and is just ahead of schedule as attention starts to focus on the 2015/16 campaign.

The Sky cameras caught up with John Rutherford, Stadium Operations Manager at Hillsborough, and John Hewitt, who is overseeing the project from the contractor’s side.

Rutherford said: “The new pitch was a priority for the chairman and I am pleased to say we are making excellent progress.

“The Desso work is almost complete and the seeding process begins on Monday.”

Hewitt added: “This will be the best quality pitch there can be. We have laid these pitches at some of the top stadia across Europe and you really just cannot get better.”

Supporters can keep right up to date with the progress of the pitch via the exclusive time-lapse videos on the Owls’ official YouTube channel.
