Hopefully some help ill attach photos of my pitch . Hoping someone can offer advice on the type of material and board/glue needed to get the pitch fixed permanently to the board.

Help is as always much appreciated.

Here's a match in progress. A few creases some more evident and bigger than others. I've tried stretching the pitch out with my hands and smoothing it over with my palms.

I stuck my baize pitch down with this....

I first rolled the baize pitch onto an Astropitch cardboard roll then basically rolled it down onto the sprayed table, slowly making sure it went on straight and smooth, and being repositionable you can always pull it back up a bit. was perfect for years.

however if it's an Astropitch I am told 3M Spray 77, is the thing to use, not tried this though.

That looks like the latest version of the Subbuteo pitch. Do you like it? And what kind of players do you use on it?

Cheers

Use damp tee towel to get them bumps out and a hot iron. Should do the trick bud.
