Thanks to our workmanship and quality of pitch constructions at their training ground in 2018, Luton Town FC selected White Horse Contractors to undertake renovation works on their stadia pitch at Kenilworth Road.
“The Kenny” as it’s affectionately known seats 10,356 spectators and was built in 1905.
Over the course of a five-year relationship, our in-house agronomist Dr James Welsh
has continued to work closely with Luton’s Head Groundsman Richard Bird. Ensuring that our works meet the football clubs requirements and performance standards.
As a result of this relationship, built on trust, we agreed with Luton’s request to seed before sand spreading. The club’s preference was to have the seed completely covered with a layer of sand so that the seed would not be disrupted during the growing in period.
During the renovation works, the pitch was subject to significant rainfall and the lack of wind within the stadium limited any drying out periods. Flexible and adaptable our team looked to the weather forecast, not the timesheet, to plan the renovations. Evenings and weekends offered the best conditions and the team worked during these periods to guarantee the successful delivery of two passes of koroing, seeding and sand spreading at the stadium.
