Edgbaston agrees two-year partnership with Allett Mowers which will see Allett provide six top specification cylinder mowers.

Edgbaston Stadium ground, Birmingham, has agreed a two-year inaugural partnership with Allett Mowers which will see Allett provide the groundstaff with six top specification cylinder mowers.

Head groundsman Gary Barwell has been using Allett mowers since 1993. When asked about his choice he cited reliability, ease of use and realistic prices as high on his list.

"We are maintaining international standards for world-class cricket and consider Allett to be the market leader in cylinder mowers, the only type of mower we believe is right to ensure the outfields and square at Edgbaston are kept up to this standard," he said.

Edgbaston has two Allett 36" Regals, two Allett 20" Shears, a Buffalo 27 and one 34 with vertical reel to complement their Allett C24 with interchangeable cartridge.

The first cricket match that took place at Edgbaston Stadium ground, Birmingham  was on the 7th June 1896 when Warwickshire played MCC watched by a crowd of 3000 over two days.

In August of the same year six thousand people turned out to see Warwickshire take Australia to a draw.

Today, Edgbaston is considered to be one of England’s leading cricket grounds and a world leader, regarded by players as an inspirational place to play.
