Newcastle’s pitch markings get a blue rinse

Posted by - January 21, 2013 - Newcastle United, Reading

Newcastle’s groundsman got to explore his inner Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen ahead of the Magpies’ defeat to Reading on Saturday.

Amid fears that mid-match snowfall would render the pitch markings useless, he instead browsed through the B&Q colour charts and settled on a lovely shade of blue for his pre-game painting session.

This might catch on as groundsmen up and down the country discover their artistic side.
