Leek Town Chairman Andrew Wain, along with Safety Officer Andy Reeves, led from the front on Saturday as Blues’ fans answered the call for volunteers to help tear down the existing pitch perimeter fence at Harrison Park before engineers move into the ground on Monday to begin erecting a new fence and dugouts.
During the previous week Andy Reeves and Chris Hermiston dismantled all the metal rails and pitch perimeter boarding whilst the Chairman began removing the concrete posts on Friday.
A number of volunteers turned up on the day and, with the aid of workmen from Nixon Reeves who will now be treated to a meal and game, most of the work was completed before 4pm.
On behalf of the club, the Chairman thanked all those who volunteered and worked so hard during the day, including Nixon Reeves who carted tons of rubble to the new Sainsburys site where Mace Contractors disposed of it all.
All that remains now is around six tones of rubble that needs to be removed from the stadium but the contractor was able to make a start on schedule on Monday.
The volunteers were kept fed and watered throughout the day by Chief Steward Terry Boote who served up burgers, chips, cake and coffee.
