I don't know how many supporters can remember the implications the Taylor Report had on Manor Park?

The ground capacity was reduced to 2500 & the Beaumont Road end was roped off, until improvements could be made to the ground. There was just a perimeter walkway.

The Main Stand had to be fire-lined.

It had a new roof, replacing the old rusting dutch barn roof.

The Cock & Bear End terracing in front of the stand was re-modelled, with the construction of a new block wall.

All of that was in addition to the concrete terracing constructed at the Beaumont Road end & within the Cock & Bear End stand, carried out during Noel Kelly's ownership.

The terrace mound in the corner of the ground by the Social Club was removed & the area by the main gates was flattened & tarmaced.

A temporary toilet block was installed at the Cock & Bear End in the corner by the canal side.

All of that was in addition to the reconstruction of the Canal Side stand, with its new block wall at the rear.

A lot of work & a lot of expense...
