Today we visit Hougang United’s Grounds Officer Uncle Lambri at work.
His labour of love for the pitch is unrivalled and has been perfecting the craft of whipping the Hougang turf into tip-top condition for the past 30 years. To be exact, since 1986.
Together with his co-worker who drives the mower a.k.a Toro, they can been seen often braving the afternoon sun, inspecting, combing and repairing the Hougang green etc.
The secret to his trade he says is a no brainer, “Treat the grass as if you would your hair, get it trimmed often, take care of it. Players enjoy their work more on a handsomely cut surface.”
Thank you Uncle Lambri!
