Also in 2018, new floodlights where installed in each corner of the ground. Replacing the old pylons that had been at the ground since floodlights were first used in the 1980's.
At the end of the 2018/19 Season the pitch was levelled and relaid with a new drainage system to finally cure the problems that had dogged the Crown Ground for so many years.
Work also continued on the re-alignment of Blocks G,H & I of the Jack Barrett Main Stand, replacing the remanents of the old Main Stand.
Included in these works was a new ticket office added at the end of the re-worked stand.
The final piece to the current jigsaw was a new PA System covering the whole of the Stadium, which can be heard from miles around.
