The watering of the grass at the Gadafi Baracks play ground in Jinja

In a bid to ensure a safe playing all green surface, management of Gaddafi Football Club embarked on a re-greening spree at the Gadafi army Barracks play ground in Jinja Municipality.

This followed the grading and leveling of the playing terrain before the grueling grass planting exercise was executed.

The leveling, grading process was followed by grass planting and the application of fertilizers as well as black soil.

Weeks after planting and continuous watering, the planted grass has exhibited promising signs of fast growth.

The grass is expected to fully grow up in six months time.

Meanwhile, Gaddafi Football Club will be expected to host their home matches in the Eastern regional league (Nile group) at the Kakindu Stadium in the heart of Jinja town.

During the period of the grass growth, there will be an internal perimeter fencing erected,

Also, the sanitary facilities will be improved with construction of toilets for the stadium.

According to the club president, Afande Edwin Ochieng, this is work being undertaken to ensure Gadafi readies itself for the times ahead.

“We are re-greening and doing general improvement on the stadium as we prepare ourselves” Ochieng notes.
