Funny place to put the covers

 Played yesterday for a Hertfordshire over 60s side at Stotfold. Beautiful ground where Letchworth Garden City play some of their home matches. It's in an old Victorian Asylum now used as a health centre, so obviously brings back memories of playing at Fair Mile Hospital. We trounced our Sussex opponents and were then asked to put the covers on - fair enough.
What was odd was that the groundsman was happy for the next strips to get rained on - what he wanted was to keep the bird poo off the artificial strip so we were asked to put the covers over it !
