New Long Reach Irrigation System for Training Ground – Bristol Rovers FC

Having attended a Groundsman’s seminar, head groundsman Eric Kingscott contacted Paul at Mawdsleys BER Ltd to discuss the operation and benefits of having one of our LRI 50 portable irrigation units at the Bristol Rovers FC training ground in Cribbs Causeway.

Eric had been talking to Kevin Sturmey (Chairman and Groundsman at Taunton Town FC), Kevin strongly recommended purchasing one of the LRI units for the training ground, as he had used an LRI 50 for many seasons now and was adamant that the LRI 50 was the answer to all portable irrigation issues.

Having met with Eric on site at the training ground, Mawdsleys Sales Director, quoted Eric for an LRI 50 with water holding tank and booster pump. Bristol Rovers now uses the LRI 50 long reach irrigation system before every training session to make the playing surface slick, for faster movement of the ball around the pitch.

“Bristol Rovers Football Club are delighted to be associated with Mawdsleys BER Ltd. With the assistance of the Sales Director Paul Pearce, all dealings with the company have been dealt with in a prompt and professional manner. We would highly recommend Mawdsleys BER Ltd and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
