Rothwell Park takes new Shape
New Fencing now complete...Rothwell Park takes new Shape
The new fence around Rothwell Park and the relocation of the goals posts have now been completed, and it all looks fantastic.
The Old Fence
The New Fence
With the reshaping of the ground, from the pictures above, you can clearly see that a fair chunk of the playing area has gone, however the overall circumference of the ground has only reduced by 26 metres. The old playing area circumference was 456 mtrs, with the new fence it's now 430 mtrs. The Ground measures 158 mtrs goal to goal and 115 mtrs wing to wing, which is very similar to what the old dimensions were. The Goal Posts needed to be moved approx 5 mtrs clockwise.
The new shape has already proved to be a huge success with the spectators, as it brings them closer to the action.
