I vote to take the seats out as it makes it better as is our selling point of terrace stadium to fans of other local football teams, but think a row or two should be kept just because people who like being sat behind the goal, and like the atmosphere of the Clayton end

Re: Clayton End development?

Strange one this,I think it should return to all standing but we've a new 1500 seat capacity stand which when given the go ahead will replacement whinney hill stand which at present holds roughly holds 800 yet we're not gaining an increase in capacity n can't understand why unless there's a plan to turn the Clayton end in to all seating like the artist impressions imply's. Just a thought.. But yep take the seats out nd with the new stand it would increase the capacity by at least 800 may be more with those new extra seats.

Re: Clayton End development?

totally agree with the comments on taking the seats out of the clayton end. that is if we can do it. I know at one time if you had seats then you could not remove them. I enjoy standing but prefer a side on view therefore I,ll stick with the jack barrett or moan stand as I prefer to call it.

I'm beginning to enjoy sitting , and prefer being behind the goal, so quite like it the way it is. But for atmosphere, a full standing only Clayton End has to have it - and it would be a dreadful idea to make it all seating.

Re: Clayton End development?

Standing in Clayton End sounds good- increase capacity and improve atmosphere.

But who will populate the new stand?We don't want to loose bodies from the Clayton End or the atmosphere will suffer.

Are we going to end up with a pristine new stand and no one to fill it?

If the ground capacity remains the same like its been stated, how does that come into it?

Re: Clayton End development?

If you can sit and watch the game without your view being blocked by an endless trail of folk walking in front going for a tea/pee or by players warming up then maybe some of those from the existing seating stands will prefer the new one. It could become the New Moan Stand

Dave Burgess has tweeted a picture of work on the pitch starting, Also the segregated fence between the main stand and the changing rooms being ripped out!

Big changes ahead it seems!

Lots of big machinery on the ground at Accrington, proper pitch drainage Andy holt posted. On Twitter after his opinion poll about seats in Clayton end that Andy in discussion with the football league about it since 72% out of a total of 646 voted for no seats.
