Pitch perfect! Wanderers win Grounds Team of the Season

Turf Tonics recognised by EFL.

27 April 2018

The EFL has announced the winners of the Grounds Team of the Season award for 2017/18 in each of the three divisions, with the Chairboys coming out on top in League Two.

The awards recognise the importance of the quality of pitches for professional football and acknowledge the clubs and their ground staff who consistently produce the best playing surfaces in the EFL.

Wycombe Wanderers' grounds team, Turf Tonics, won top prize in League Two, while the ground staff of Chesterfield and Swindon Town are highly commended.

The EFL's Grounds Team of the Season Awards are determined initially using marks from referees and away managers for each Sky Bet EFL game and are then followed by detailed pitch inspections and a review of management operations.

These visits were carried out by Dr Stephen Baker, Head of Sports Surface Technology at the Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI).
