The hybrid pitch at Doncaster must be the way forward. It looked superb late season.
Think I read it cost £400k

I agree. The technological advances in hybrids will hopefully lead to the plastic pitches being dug up.

I think with the advance of drainage the days of mud bath pitches is over. In the last couple of years all our 5 pitches have been playable apart from snow and frost so I don't think we would ever move to 3/4G pitches

But when you are a city centre club with one pitch, that's used by three football teams (potentially five with Ladies/2nds), trained on, used by several local schools, for concerts (etc), what then?

And to add:
The Ricoh has a hybrid pitch which is used by two football teams, and not for training on.
It's trashed.
