Outside competition may help the Club to up their game...I very much doubt it though.

The attitude seems to be to take as much as they can with as little effort as possible.

That's probably the easiest and most cost effective option, Badger. 

  Hope you are keeping well.

Mall. I am not advocating anything. As Dilly said anything which encourages discussion is to be welcomed, particularly with the dearth of info from the Club at the moment.

That is a very good suggestion Dilly. There are specialist companies which provide either terracing or seating additions to stadia.

Grants of up to 70% of the project cost are available from the Football Stadia fund to National League clubs.

Kes, there is a wealth of experience out there which could have been used for the benefit of the Club and Community.

Sadly too many bridges have been burnt for that to happen now and that is a huge shame.

Mall, I can't disagree with that sentiment but the Football Foundation gives grants, not loans.

Mall, I thought SC mentioned in a podcast that we will be required to increase the seating capacity sometime.

Gris, I think the terracing opp the stand already stretches almost to the corner flag so not much room there. The obvious place for new terracing, or preferably a stand is behind the hospital end and I think the Football Foundation is the place to look for funding.
If a stand was built in the correct manner there would still be room for car parking underneath.

That was my thought actually. I think it rained heavily during the Boston game and a lot of people had to stand and endure it as the covered section was rammed.

As far as position and view are concerned, I think it is quite common for the visiting supporters to be ' tucked away'. The last time I went to Carrow Road the visitors had a small section adjacent to the hotel.

I have always thought the segregated area to be too small and I think it will totally inadequate for certain games this season.

We (literally) bumped into Bobby Moore when we played Gravesend in our Southern League days. He was Manager of Southend and was having a look at a centre half playing for Gravesend.

The terracing is segregated on the opposite side of the ground from the Stand. You have half of your segregated area under cover towards the corner flag and the rest in the open behind the goal line in the same corner, if that makes sense. There is a toilet block and segregated access to the food outlet. Access to your area is through a separate gate.

As far as I am aware there is no segregation in the Stand ( but don't trip over a Zimmer or walking stick!)

We are looking forward to your visit as I am sure you are.

Yes, I thought we played very well. The keeper's distribution put us under pressure a couple of times but he also made two very good saves.

Who got the goal...we weren't sure from our spot in the stand?

It was the Oldham game, B and G, with stewards supplied by Boston Utd who were, or recently had been, in the League.

The reasoning was that soft drink bottles complete with cap could be filled with water ( or whatever) and used as a missile.
