Cricket Loam


Cricket Loam


We stock over 5000 bags of cricket loam which are compatible with the majority of cricket wickets, whether you are maintaining to a 1st class county or a school wicket standard. Our range of cricket loams are suitable for all end of season cricket wicket renovations, in season pitch repairs and new constructions.


ASSB or ‘Motty’ Test


An Adams and Stewart soil binding (ASSB) or ‘Motty’ test is important in understanding the binding capabilities of the soil you are working with, and therefore your choice of loam. It is advised that you undertake a Motty test before you start thinking about purchasing your loam. Using a product that doesn’t meet your current soil classification or target performance group, could have adverse affects on the playability of the wicket through the growing season.

A Motty test calculates the soil’s ability to bind by testing its strength. From the results of this test, an adequate choice of loam can be made to suit your own personal cricket square. Once results are obtained, a loam with similar clay content can be purchased. It is important to note that soils with ASSB/Motty values over 90kg and below 45kg are generally deemed as unfit for cricket pitches. Soils which disintegrate between 45 and 70kg are fit for club pitches, and between 70 and 90kg for first class pitches.


ASSB / Motty Value Equivalent Clay Content For Well Made Motties Strength Category
113kg (250lb) and over Over 55% Exceptionally Strong
91-113kg (200-250lb) 44-55% Very Strong
68-91kg (150-200lb) 33-44% Strong
45-68kg (100-150lb) 22-33% Moderately strong
23-45kg (50-100lb) 11-22% Weak
9-23kg 20-50lb) 4-11% Very weak
Under 9kg Below 4% Non-binding

used before so know the content will be good. As above - bags opened/split and left in rain so there may be some loss. Disappointing as we paid extra for bags to avoid repeat losses experienced using 1000kg bag when it wasn't all used at once.

Bag contents look good, dry and easy to use. Too early to assess function.

Well screeded, fine granules , spreads easily and cheaper than Kloam, for which it is a replacement. Will watch with interest how pitch responds next season having spoken to Binders to confirm compatibility.

The person on the phone was obtuse and didn't appear to be bothered whether I was spending over £600. Further when product arrived one pallet was broken and was immovable once off the lorry and the next pallet would not move off the bed of the lorry. I had to unload 40 X 25 kg bags by hand.


On 14-Oct-2014 the supplier responded:
Service rating :We are sorry you felt the standard of service both through our sales team and delivery was not up to the high standards we expect.

Please have my personal assurance that we at Pitchcare pride ourselves on telephone etiquette, manner and helpfulness. When peak season hits, although the staff can be under pressure with incoming call volumes and quotes, it is imperative standards do not slip and throughout the interaction you feel appreciated, helped, and not rushed. I have personally investigated this instance, spoke to the relevant staff member and we will be investing in further training in the short future.

We have been aware of a few instances where pallet quality has caused the delivery driver offload problems and have taken this up with our suppliers, warehouse and Palletforce haulage agents to minimise the risk of drivers not being able to offlaod. I am sorry that in this instance, the 1T was not able to be delivered as we and you expected.

Our customer services team will contact you direct regarding this feedback and the problems you have regrettably experienced with this order.
