Video: Watch Steve Speed make his pitch for real grass

Port Vale groundsman Steve Speed has been filmed for a Swedish TV commercial and this is the finished result.

In the two minute advert, Speed talks about his work on the pitch during his 36 years service with the club.

Artificial turf  is commonly used by many of Sweden’s top clubs and the advert is geared towards promoting natural, grass pitches.

Speed was about his preference for grass pitches rather than artificial turf to help promote a new “English Grass” product which will be sold in Sweden.
