Volunteers are being encouraged to give Ashton United’s groundsman a helping hand this weekend.

In a bid to prepare the stadiumĀ for the forthcoming season, volunteers are needed to carry out a number of roles.

These will include weeding, sweeping, painting and maintenance to advertising boards.

Andy Finnigan, Ashton’s head groundsman, said: “As you know this is a critical time and I am asking if we can gather over the next three or four weekends to make good our stadium experience.

“The grass is coming on well, although some jobs are still essential, new sockets for goalposts, pitch weeds, etc.

“However, it’s the terraces that need the most attention i.e.: sweeping, painting, maintenance to advertising boards, weeding.

“If you can spare a couple of hours tomorrow and following Saturdays it would be very much appreciated”.

Those wishing to offer their services should get to the ground from 9.30am.
