    Shouldn't do as the o.g changing rooms should be able to be used.

    Probably not. I'd assume the club won't have put in for the usual safety certification on the stand as it's about to come down. Also I think, as far as health & safety rules are concerned it's now a construction site.

    If that's the case would hope we can arrange a couple of league sides away from home, or at least behind closed doors at the cat and fiddle or at a local neutral venue. Didn't we play crystal palace at Tiverton for some reason a few years ago?

    Don't think it's ideal if we just play a number of non league outfits.

    Agree totally no real test plus possibility of agricultural tackles coming in leaving us with some walking wounded as has happened too many times in recent pre seasons.

    Wasn't it Cardiff who left us black and blue last season - admittedly mainly their U21s?

    Hope that you didn't pay good money to enter, as if the changing rooms aren't ready in time . . . . . . . . . unless they revert to the system used when City first moved into SJP, when I believe the players used to change in a local pub. (Noble would have loved that !).

    On the fixtures thread, someone states that we will be able to use the changing rooms until November, so this doesn't appear a problem.
    Though I thought we would have announced at least one home game by now

    The Bath City game is now a cup match! We'll be contesting the Brian Lomax Supporters Direct Cup.
