Wrington Redhill have been managing to find ways to keep the club going despite being in a third lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mike Clements and Nick Taplin have been working on The Recreation Ground and found a solution for flooding on the far side of the pitch.

Despite some drainage systems found going back to the 1950s and some new ones, it was found the main problem was an impenetrable clay base, so extra drainage is being installed and Wrington have made plans to increase their VertiDrain regime.

The club have also been informed they will be picking up DBS certificates.

The hard work put in place by Simon Bull and Dan Burnett has resolved the question why they have gone so long without them and Welfare Officer Jordan Lovatt will be able to put procedures in place.

Despite a lack of games and money coming through, Wrington have confirmed that despite income being down, there is nothing much to spend and they are continuing to receive donations from vice presidents, made up of ex-players, supporters and friends, where a lot of them pay a small amount monthly which all adds up to a very important part of their income.

The club have also paid thanks to Sam Clements after he has introduced and administrated Last Man Standing, an app-based football competition that has become a fun part of their fundraising.
