BBC commentator and ex-Sussex and Glamorgan batsman Tony Cottey is one of a host of speakers at a refresher conference on how to look after pitches. He will give a warts-and-all account from the players’ perspective.
This will be balanced by a presentation from East Molesey Cricket Club groundsman Barry Glynn, who will regale delegates with the frustrations of a club cricket groundsman.
The event, by Dennis and Sisis, will be hosted by Sussex County Cricket Club head groundsman Andy Mackay at Hove on Thursday 28 February. He will give an update on pitch re-laying.
England and Wales Cricket Board pitch liaison officer Tony Pigott will explain the role of the liaison officer, while Essex CCC head groundsman Stuart Kerrison will look at producing good surfaces and keeping the coach happy.
Mackay will round off the day with practical tips on life at the Hove ground and planning a season.
