WATCH: The life of a non-league groundsman

Storm Ciara had us wondering what it must be like to be a non-league groundsman.

With this in mind, we decided to visit Curzon Ashton Football Club head groundsman, Justin Pickering.

He gave us an insight into what it takes to get the pitch ready, the biggest problems he faces, and how he juggles his time between working at Stockport Golf Club, where he takes care of the greens, and playing for Wythenshawe Town.
