With the new Premier League season rapidly approaching, it’s fair to say that the Selhurst Park pitch looks in better shape than ever, thanks to investment in an all-new surface by the club’s owners.
After years of problems in SE25, Steve Parish and his fellow board members decided to engage the services of Desso Sports, whose GrassMaster pitches are thought to be the best option for anyone with enough money to spend.
Ideally, it will put an end to the troubles we’ve had to endure with the Selhurst surface in recent seasons, enabling Alan Pardew and his players to be a great deal more confident when returning to south London for their home games in the coming months.
After countless complaints from visiting teams, we now have a pitch to be proud of, as the image below proves. Let’s just hope that it still looks like that in mid-January, after the notoriously gloomy British winter has got its teeth stuck into it.
