Those photos are of The Dell, Southampton I believe.
I’ve read the weird, elevated areas of terracing in the first one were affectionately known as the chocolate boxes.
I nearly got to see them once.
When I was young we were on holiday somewhere on the South Coast and being football mad I badgered my parents to take me to a game there.
We turned up and thought it seemed very quiet.
I’m not sure how we discovered the awful truth but the date of the fixture had been changed for some reason and the match had already been played!
I suppose those sort of things happened from time to time pre-internet.

I saw this on FB from Peckham Town, and wondered if it would do for the gap?

I thought I'd bring this thread back rather than entirely derail the home ticket news thread...

When I was looking at the Nevada stand on Saturday I was wondering why, when it was built, the building at the back didn't extend to the end of the stand. Another bit of short-sightedness?

It looks like there would just about have been enough space And we'd have far more corporate hospitality space.

Would that ever be an enhancement we'd be looking at? Obviously the memorial garden is located there now so might need relocation if we did.

I suggested this to Norrie Stewart when he was here, the intention was to put in more exec boxes. Norrie actually priced up the project and it could have paid for itself in a short period of time. The Trust could even have had one box. Not sure what prevented it in the end.
