New venues for me are potentially Spennymoor, Darlington, York, and Hereford. I haven't been to FCUM, and won't be doing unless it's crucial.

I may also skip three other grounds I'm not keen on : Bradford PA, Boston, and Brackley.

What's wrong with Boston??

I don't like having to sit at one end of the ground.

Won't we be having to do that at most grounds next season?

Most 'locals' in Boston are now Eastern European.

Horrible memories of a baying racist mob with a local constabulary who seemed singularly one sided.......I realise this is some time ago, but I've never liked the place.

I remember ex Boston player Leroy Chambers being visibly upset by the racist abuse he suffered when he returned to York St with Alty.

Its a bit like when someone gets a patch of turf for a memento, at the end of the day a lot of pitches are completely relayed.
Like the irish tale,
I've had this spade in our family for 7 generations, its had 3 new handles and 4 new heads.

I doubt it. Example Southport - I sit in the main stand. We got a side-on view at Kidderminster last time. It'll happen at FCUM and Chester though.

Is the main stand not an option at Boston?
