The Hamil End

Posted (edited)

May be totally confused but I’ve a distant memory of standing (no roof) on the Hamil when we beat them down the road in a pre-season ‘friendly’ the 88/89 promotion season - think it might have been the unveiling of an or THE electronic scoreboard too.

Don’t remember where their fans stood though?

Correct, I remember stood in front of Swindon fans when we played them and someone threw a spark plug which would have hit me in the face had it not been for the wired fencing above the wall. I was there for the Bolton game, we equalised in the 94th minute and seats started coming over.

Lucky you weren't sparked out.

I'm not sure which fans are pictured but you may want to look at this old OVF article @Trumpingtonvale

Thanks Rob. Can’t see any evidence of stripes in the b&w photo so might support my memory regards where I stood but still can’t recall where the opposition fans might have stood since the Hamil was certainly the usual away end at that time.

Stoke were definately in the Hamil End that night.

Thanks MV.  30+ years ago so glad I at least got the scoreboard bit right even though I can’t remember where I looked at it from 🥴

Sneaked I to the concourse of the Hamil when I nipped down the club shop this morning. Lots of work going on to alter the kiosks and install TVs. Had a full walk around the ground. It's going to be a busy two weeks to get everything ready/tidied up for the Fleetwood game!

The club could definitely recoup some cash by auctioning off the old turnstiles. Must be eight or nine just dumped in the corner of the Synetics car park looking unloved...

Indeed they could, and put the proceeds towards the Sir John Rudge statue.

If they’re still there in the week I’ll have a set away.  Need a new back gate.  👍🏻
