--Update--

Mandatory Powerplay is getting an upgrade!
Along with the new construction work, Trailpro will be working on Mandatory Powerplay for the next couple of weeks to turn it into the track it always wanted to be.
The trail will be closed for the duration of the build. Please respect the trail closed signs for your own safety, and to allow the trail builders to turn it into the best track possible.



The first half of this Mandatory was built in 3 working bee's over 8 days. The second half was built using TSB Community Trust money. It's a tribute to what can be achieved with local funding and volunteers motivated enough to move a heap of gorse and dirt, and build a sweet track, while keeping all but 4 fielders inside the 30 yard line.
