Poor pitches

Some sports pitches across the country are somewhat weathered and in need of repair.

To help teams most in need, outdoor petrol powered equipment engine manufacturer, Briggs & Stratton, is giving away up to £10,000 to amateur under-18s football, rugby league and cricket teams in its Pitch to Win competition, in conjunction with the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG).

Winning teams will also receive expert advice from the IOG as well as a technical evaluation report.

To enter simply visit www.pitchtowin.org.uk, complete the entry form and submit some photos. More information can be found on the competition’s Twitter page @pitch_to win

Closing date is March 29.
