Work continuing apace at Franklin’s Gardens

DSC_0123

This week has been a hive of activity in all areas at Franklin’s Gardens.

Work on the Barwell Stand has been fast and furious. Steelwork is now up for the entire width of the pitch, with the wraparound into the Church’s Stand now underway. Meanwhile the concrete base for the seating deck is beginning to arrive and be put in place, starting from the corner closest to the Saints Ticket Office.

Elsewhere in the main stadium work has now begun on the installation of some 4G artificial surfacing that will run on both sides of the main grass pitch between the touchline and the running tracks in front of the Tetley’s and Church’s Stands.

This surface will eliminate the wear and tear on the parts of the pitch which have traditionally become the most worn due to heavy use during the course of the season from the likes of assistant referees, ball boys, medical staff and TV personnel.

And all while over 300 youngsters have been attending the first Elite Insurance Rugby Academies of the summer, and the full-time squad has been put through its paces in pre-season training!

The big kick off comes later in the year, and you can be a part of the cast of thousands getting behind the Saints by snapping up a Season Ticket. All of the information you need, including pricing and how to book, is available at www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/seasontickets
