A moment with Michael

Friday 11th June 2021

We recently caught up with our ECB Pitch Advisor, Michael Llong, to talk about the current climate for the staff and volunteers that we rely on to prepare pitches week after week.

When we spoke to him a couple of weeks ago we were experiencing torrential rain, thankfully we had the foresight to ask him about how to preserve outfields in the extreme heat.
