Hopefully, any new stand will incorporate proper toilet & catering facilities for away fans, as well as shelter from foul weather.
Our infamous Portaloos, canned beer & pie-free catering for away fans must be consigned to history once & for all.
The last thing we want is the same criticism that dogged us during our time in League 2, when travelling fans decided that 1 visit to the Wham was more than enough!

The majority of teams expected to be in League 1 next year have played us recently.

I think as the majority of fans are in the clayton end, which can't cope on busy days, it is still badly in need of improvement. The last improvements were helpful, but are now looking unambitious.

BTW my season ticket is wrecked by the weather, anyone know what number should be left for Sat?

Re: Pitch and Ground Improvements summer 2018?

As a club we need to rethink some of our service to customers home or away because that is what we all are. We need away fans to spread a good word about the wham. Catering facilities need to be upgraded and even have people at various points around the ground at half time selling food and drinks. we have to realise that we really do need bigger attendances at home matches to survive in League 1. 2-3000 would be enough to keep us afloat.

Anyone know if our pitch has been 'ripped up' yet?
It has been promptly dug up straight after the last home match in the previous three seasons!
Any more news on other developments regarding the Whinney Hill Stand, away end facilities etc?

Choirboy, get yourself a sledge-hammer and get down to the ground; you're obviously 'itching' to see the scrattin' sheds go.
