3-2 win for Boro’s U19 by Old Git

Posted: 12/11/2018 at 22:23:51, 391 views. In reply to 'I’ll take that as a yes then'

Boro went 2 up in first half with 2 finely worked goals,
the final being played across the 6 yard box for Boro
forward to finish .
The visitors got back into the game when a mix up between
a Boro defender & keeper saw the home keeper lash the ball
against an opposing player only for it to rebound behind him
and trickle into the goal.
Boro almost got a third goal from their familiar well worked play
only for the ball to be thrashed over the bar into the wall
of the swimming pool when it looked easier to score.
Boro regained the 2 goal lead with a penalty just before the
half-time whistle.
Second half saw a lot of huffing and puffing half-chances created
and missed.
Ten minutes from the end the visitors scored an excellent 2nd
at the swimming pool end when the ball was crossed in from the left
where it was met with a powerful header into the net by a visiting forward
that gave the Boro keeper no chance.

I didn’t get a coffee as there was no bar service tonight.

Flamingo Land Stadium planning application by Dewsbury User: Dewsbury

Oodles of drawings and documents for us to pore over on the planning pages of SBC: https://planning.scarborough.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=PFO991NSIPW00&fbclid=IwAR1ZB4rxn1jPOFu4f4DoJoPc9rvRGCYKwTZ_CRqKWwNc6cG6HHdv1j4fwjk

If you read only one thing, cast your eyes over the “supporting statement" which very clearly lays out the board’s thinking, and the reasons behind moving on from the initial temporary-permanent solutions proposed previously. All eminently sensible, and I applaud the board and whomever else has been involved in getting us to this stage. Well done all.

I notice the layout of the new stand has changed from having terracing at the front of the stand with seating immediately behind it (which was the previously proposed format at the video presentation earlier in the year). Not a criticism, just an observation.

If you are referring to the original stand plans it was decided that it was prudent to not be so adventurous financially because of the extra planning costs that had emerged. Hence the funding appeal for £28k so as not to affect the playing budget. The new plans make more economic sense and are more practical based on forecasted crowds.

Yes, 4 step terrace at swimming pool end with a capacity of 462.

Also a new uncovered standing terrace (7 steps) with a capacity of 330 to the right of the existing main stand (looking from the pitch).

Both of these are in Stage 2 of the proposals, with the east (donkey field) side works to be done first.

Note that the Stage 2 works do not add significantly to the stadium capacity (around +190), but will be of benefit to fans in terms of cover and/or aiding viewing. Personally I cannot stand watching the game at pitch-level, so you’ll find me at the top of the uncovered 7-step terrace as soon as it is built…!

I think stage 2 will be built if the capacity still needs to get to 3000 if we get to conf north and the existing standing in front of the donkey stand are not counted in capacity calculations. If the standing in front donkey stand is included we will have 3200 capacity without stage 2.

I don’t think there will be any standing at the front of the donkey field stand, or if there is it will be a lot narrower than the existing space. I would imagine that for access purposes there will be no standing permitted in front of the seated stand at all. Therefore the 420 figure given for the donkey field side capacity cannot be included when working out capacity there when the stand is built. The Stage 2 improvements will be needed to get us over the 3000 capacity needed for Conf North.

The east (donkey field) stand is Stage 1. 336 seats in a central block, and 2 blocks of 430 capacity terrace either side, all covered (I think). The existing boundary fence will be going 4.7m further back, and a WC/kiosk block to be built near the car park turnstiles.

Great to see the vision for the development and huge thanks to all those involved.

Be interesting to see how things progress and the timescales involved, although as it has yet to go through Planning the only certainty is that there are no certainties. In the Supporting Statement to the Planning Application I noticed there is a table with the comment “March 2020 at the earliest?" for upgrade to Category B (National League North) standard which presumably is the current projection.

I think March 2020 is the earliest we would need it to be a category B ground, but IF we went up this year then March 2020 would actually be the latest, because it is the March of the first season at that new level.

Thanks for that. Yes if I’d read the couple of paragraphs below the table I might have picked up that the deadline is the March after promotion and so on that basis I reckon your analysis is spot on.

I must have missed the bit, possibly several years ago, when the FA became more realistic / less stringent on the date by which grounds needed to be upgraded (where necessary) to enable promotion at National League level.

From what I can make out Jackson that would not be practical. A single row of standing spectators would obscure the view of at least the 1st and perhaps even the 2nd row of seated in the stand. So the stand & seating would all have to be raised, defeating the object. If it is like the Salford stand, I believe the first row of seating is quite low to avoid the necessity of a higher stand. As long as we can provide the necessary numbers in the ground we don’t need to accommodate another row of standing at the front. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Thank you, Burniston. I meant build it like the main stand, higher with terracing in front. This is how stands should be; hence " Grandstand View", not pitch- level looking over a barrier. After all, this is what won the award for best new stand.
I suppose it doesn’t matter to most people how you reach 5,000 capacity with 2,000 seats. Maybe that will be achieved with terracing on the main stand side only.

Burniston, just watching Salford now. Sensibly, with supporters in mind, first row of seats not at ground level. Not as good as a “paddock" but a lot better than most stands.I realize the new stand will have to be similar, because of the terracing either side.

Yes.

And he was indeed a replacement for Hoyle, but only as the former left for America rather than him being considered better

Very little audio as the wind was bad I’ve reduced it almost to zero

There was what looked like a video platform behind and between the dugouts
but in that wind it would have been a hazardous occupation.
I was at ground level and nearly got blown over a number of times in the 2nd half.
That explains the regular camera shake.

Ha ha apologies if this has been mentioned before but I have just seen that Ian Scobbie was appointed to the board of Hartlepool United due to his 30 years knowledge in sports related business
Wonder how long before they go bust then? 🤔

Without meaning to cause debate…. by Patto_1989

Posted: 5/11/2018 at 23:34:29, 420 views. In reply to 'Ian Scobbie'

…was it not Scobbie who came up with the plans to originally sell the McCain, and then use the money generator for a new ground (similar in size and shape to FLS), and clear the clubs debts?

From my own understanding at the time, it was the council who blocked these plans to sell the ground, effectively killing the club, before waiting a number of years before lifting the covenant and selling on the land for a decent profit.

For all people might believe Scobbie was the ender of SFC, from seeing quite a bit behind the scenes at the time, he was actually a very intelligent man who worked hard to try and save the club.

Wasn’t it GR who first came up with this idea. He wanted to build. new ground out by the tip but the council were having none of it.

Scobbie’s plan … by Cynic Al

Posted: 6/11/2018 at 07:09:18, 395 views. In reply to 'Without meaning to cause debate….'

Was to build a ground on the industrial estate between Morrisons and Seamer Tip.

From my memory, some of the major obstacles at the time was that the plan was very last minute. No plans had been drawn up, no planning applications submitted, nothing was actually on the table. It was a ‘pie in the sky’ plan. The council didn’t really have a plan to block. The other major problem with the plan was that the ‘plan’ was not envisaged to be able to clear the debts that SFC still had.

The plan to sell the McCain Stadium site was first mooted by Geoffrey Richmond. He wanted to build a new stadium on what is now the Sainsbury’s site.

In my opinion, Ian Scobbie was not the reason the club went under, he just didn’t have the time/finances to save it.

To add.. by snainton seadog User: snainton seadog

Posted: 6/11/2018 at 08:49:24, 289 views. In reply to 'Scobbie’s plan …'

The proposed stadium would have been the same specification as FLS (minus the sports village) - so 2,000 capacity and at Eastfield. Funds from the sale of the Athletic Ground would have repaid debts but not left enough for the build, and other funding wasn’t guaranteed. The council were asked to lift the covenant on a promise with no plans etc.

The financial collapse also came a few months after we went bust, which would certainly have hampered any ability to sell the land for anywhere near enough money.

In my view it was little more than a last minute smokescreen. To little, too late. I agree that Scobbie wasn’t the reason the club went under, it was already holed under the waterline. That said, it would have been tough, but in the right hands, say a supporters’ trust, I still believe it could have been rescued.

Best part of twelve years waiting for “the truth" to come out and that’s all there was.

So all those long running disparaging comments from Town fans were just unsubstantiated innuendo after all.

No wonder Malton decided not to make the film.

Not everyone can be this silly but it is nice to see so many trying.

Just to add…

…the council’s primary duty was to ensure that the covenant on the Seamer Road site maintaining it as a sporting venue for the use of the town was either maintained, or “transferred" to another facility.

From Steve Adamsons “The Official History “. The big news of 1989 was the announcement by Geoffrey Richmond that the club was looking to sell the ground and move to a new site, possibly at Caytom Low Road, where a modern, purpose built stadium would be erected. A Hull based development company had agreed to pay £2.56 million for the McCain Stadium, for a supermarket site, and would build the club a new ground of planning permission was forthcoming.
There was much talk of a proposed sale of the McCain Stadium for a supermarket site,with Chairman Geoffrey Richmond now hoping to re-locate to Dunslow Road, close to the Eastfield Industrial Estate.
And the rest is history.

Do you know if Denny and/or Ryan will be in attendance as well, given the large number of U19 players likely to get a run out?
