Bad turf at Goodison Park


November 28, 1892
The turf at Goodison Park is causing the Everton directors some uneasiness. It is bad and no mistake. Football players are accustomed to mud, but they naturally object to being hampered by carrying whole sods about with them. For the match on Saturday the worst part had been re-laid with sods of an enormous size, and the experiment was a decided success, and I see nothing for it but to repeat the process as the necessity arises. The directors are prepared to go to nearly any expense in securing a passable piece of playing ground.
