Meanwhile, chairman of the GCA competition committee Shawn Massiah said the players need to assist the grounds men in covering the pitch. “If players are really interested in playing they should assist the grounds men to cover the pitch, we don’t get this problem at MYO and GYO, the other clubs should follow suit. Clubs need to get better covers as well,” said Massiah.
Massiah also stated that he is disappointed that certain section of the media misquoted him as saying that only one grounds man takes care of all the grounds instead of each ground has one staff. He also informed that he did not blame the ground staff for the water logged pitches last weekend but the inferior covers as was stated in another newspaper.
