Matt Harrison for Lost Boyos:
Turf Moor today still has a rather antiquated feel to it, despite improvements, and it is definitely one of my favourite grounds in Premier League, if not the entire Football League; probably because its traditional yet still sizable. The main stand in the ground is the James Hargreaves Stand, a two-tiered stand with executive boxes – this stand replaced the Longside Terrace; opposite is the smallest stand in the ground, the Bob Lord Stand, a single-tiered stand with windshields either side of it; at the far end of the ground is the two-tiered Jimmy McIlroy Stand and behind the other goal is the David Fishwick Stand – where we were being housed today. With queues a bit long for beer on the concourse and with kick-off looming, I headed straight up into the stand with its rusting roof and couple of supporting pillars. I took my perch in the one but last row ready for the kick-off.
It’s a great blog, nowadays mostly about the match-going experiences of the Harrison brothers.
