Award For City Groundsman

John Ledwidge, Head Groundsman at the Ricoh Arena, has been awarded the 2012 Young Turf Professional of the Year.

He was presented with the award at the Macdonald Savill Court Hotel in Surrey for his work in getting the pitch in superb condition for the London 2012 Olympic Games football tournament matches which were staged at Coventry City's ground in July and August.

“This is the first award I have won as head groundsman and it is a reward for my entire team who worked so hard to prepare the pitch between the end of the Coldplay concert and the start of the Olympic Games,” the 26-year-old said to Michelle Ridley.
