Head Groundsman Stuart Lambert shortlisted for prestigious award

Head Groundsman Stuart Lambert shortlisted for prestigious award
Gloucester Rugby are delighted to confirm that our Head Groundsman, Stuart Lambert, has been shortlisted as a 2019 IOG Industry Award finalist in the Professional RFU Grounds Team category.

Stuart is in his second full season at Kingsholm, and his arrival was particularly timely as last season was the first that featured the new hybrid playing surface at Kingsholm.

Stu, as he’s popularly known around the club, talked about how honoured he is to be short-listed.

“It’s massive really, the equivalent in my world of the senior squad winning the Premiership. And also testimony to the work put in, not just by myself, but by the whole team here at Kingsholm – particularly my assistant Jerome Vidgen.

“The last 12 months have been challenging as we’ve learned how to manage the new pitch, how it behaves in certain weather conditions throughout the season and, of course, taking into account the requirements of the playing squad.”

The next stage will see an assessor come to Kingsholm to inspect the pitch before a final decision is made and announced at the IOG Industry Awards ceremony in Birmingham at the end of October.
