I remember the old wooden stand. I was at a reserve match (I remember us having a reserve team too!) when Mandy Hill made a wild mis-kick, the ball shot into the (sparsely populated) stand and hit a very young lad straight in the face. He disappeared. It was a sheer drop beneath the foot planks. Looking really alarmed, Mandy jumped over the hoardings into the stand. Fortunately, the lad reappeared and was okay.
we used to sneak under the stand the day after a game and pick up all the loose change dropped down the gaps .surprising how much there was.

Wish I'd thought of that. Worrying to think of fag butts smouldering under there, though.
