No sarcasm intended - why half a stand? Only asking because 25 yrs ago , Michael Knighton, our beloved owner( much hated, nearly mufc owner) built us a new stand that almost bankrupted us, offset 20 yards out of line with the pitch. His plan, failed, was to later move the pitch and rebuild bigger end stands. Giving brunton park 25000 seats for an average 5000 gate! We only got 12000 in our season in the sun in 1974.
unfortunately, the stand still isn’t finished and to be honest , is freezing on a cold windy day, and I’m from Carlisle. Heaven knows what Yu guys would have thought a few weeks ago😂

It's because the railway embankment cuts in behind stopping a full length development.
