Portrait of LTFC Groundsman

From the Portrait Series

David is every bit a Lowestoft man. He used to work in one of the towns key industries, spending days and nights out on the North Sea on one of the many fishing trawlers. which frequented this stretch of coast. Twenty plus years ago, all that changed. He was approached by the club chairman to become the groundsman.
Joining the ground keeping course at Ipswich Town, David learnt from the best in the business, Alan Fergusson, who, incidentally is now the head grounds man for St Georges park – the home of the England International team. Pretty good pedigree to learn from.

David retired from the club last year, but can still be seen on match days – a real character of non league football.
