My first report, and a small one at that. Next time I'll have a better look.

My old haunt of a Saturday afternoon - Belle Vue. Home of the greatest football team in the land until the full time whistle on the 23rd December 2006.

Rovers own the buildings, but not the land, nor the lease. They have sold off fixtures and fittings, and the scrapman has seen to a lot of the metal already.

The clubhouse in the car park, probably less than two years old, but the whole roof blew off on Thursday (!) just 22 days after the last match. Unfortunately, that will speed it's demise, but the rest of the ground looks set to stand for 12-18 months. Will no doubt be chavved to buggery very soon.

My 6 photos, hope you like them.

The Rossington (away) end.

The now roof-less Pop side, where I once spent many Saturday afternoons, looking toward the Town end now minus it's executive boxes.

The now near seat-less Main stand.

The now roof-less club house/ticket office.

Another of the front of the club house.

The front of the Main stand looking very forlorn.

If anyone is interested, I can post some shots of the last match from the 23rd December by way of contrast.
