The covers were placed to protect the field at Huish Park from the rainy weather in preparation for the upcoming game against Leeds this Saturday.

And before Americans start making fun of this second-tier English football club for relying on volunteers to help with stadium maintenance, let's remember that the Green Bay Packers do it all the time. [Western Gazette]
