It's not just the playing squad and the coaching team that are having a makeover this summer, the Proact Stadium pitch has transformed from a desert to an oasis in just a fortnight.

The end of the season saw a complete replacement of the playing surface at the Proact, and in just over two weeks the pitch is already well on its way to returning to its former glory.

First Three Images: June 3, the grass is gone and only sand is visible.

Second three images: June 9, within a week the green shoots are peaking through and growing tall.

Third three images: June 12, the grass is already needing to be cut with the grass far thicker than three days previously.

Final three image: June 19, A week later and from afar the pitch looks almost playable.

Antony Haywood and his ground staff still have a month to ensure the surface is in top nick before Hull City visit Chesterfield and the green shoots end their own pre-season training.
