Artificial pitch recycling plans
Saturday 19 November 2011
Artificial pitches could make a shock comeback if some Football League clubs get their way.
They were banned in 1988 because of complaints that they caused injuries and that the quality of play on them was poor.
Wycombe and Accrington are two clubs keen to reintroduce them in a bid to cut costs and increase revenue.
"Within 10 years, we will see quite a number of pitches," said Wycombe's vice-chairman Brian Kane.
