And whilst there’s plenty to like about a historic old ground such as this, it’s an odd one to comment on as a visitor. There’s only really two sides of the ground that you can get near, and it’s a long walk from one to the other.
So overall I’d definitely say it’s a good’un. I’m yet to suss out whether the stand that just looks like a load of Portakabins is a good or bad thing, but either way, it’s worth a visit if you’re nearby.
Woodhorn Lane Update
Everything seems to be going well at Ashington as well. Most of the external brickwork seems to have been done – it’s amazing how much progress appears to have been made in the two weeks we’ve been clarting on with different views of the ground.
You what? Have I written a book that you can buy? Well yes, but only if you insist.
