Thursday marked a visit to see Mr. Alan Ferguson, the Head Groundsman of the English FA- tasked with getting St. George’s Park prepared for its opening this summer. The FA is in good hands, that is for sure. Not only are the pitches absolutely gorgeous but Mr. Ferguson and his wonderful wife, Mrs. Carol Ferguson, have a vision for the park is grand and fantastic. I can not thank either of them enough for taking time to see us today to show us around and share some stories over tea, The conversation, the ideas, the attitude, the dedication I hope to be able see the park again next year to see the dramatic change it will go through. The expanse of the park and the rolling hills reminded me alot of home at SoccerPlex- and so did all the rain!!
