Former groundsman returns to tend the Oval
AFTER six years away from the Kia Oval, Lee Fortis returned to Surrey on Monday to take up the role of head groundsman.
Fortis, 30, was previously assistant head groundsman and since leaving the club in 2006, has been in charge of tending the picturesque City ground of the Honourable Artillery Company.
He leads a team that includes former head groundsman Bill Gordon, who remains at the club in a consultancy role and has led the ground staff team in the interim period following the recent departure of Scott Patterson.
"It will be good to return to the Kia Oval and an honour to once again work at such an historic ground and be part of a successful Surrey County Cricket Club," Fortis said.
