The new extension will provide more seats for families, elderly, disabled of Darlo and makes the ground look a little less tinpot. I suppose some of it may have to be allocated to away support, for segregated games. Those fans who cant handle the ground level "view" now have an option with a side on view. I suppose next building priority would be some modest side terrace, although a match day bar would be a good idea.

Great to see the stand actually looks like a stand and not so much a bike shed now.

Its incredible what a transformation to the aesthetics of the ground the extension to the stand makes. The two sections together look great and improve the look of the ground.

I didn't like the look of the first stand, but have to agree that the additional stand has transformed it's appearance, as it now looks like a proper stand.

Certainly makes the stand look a lot better but most of all improves the seating opportunity.

Not expected to be in use for Kidderminster game due to further work and paving required etc.

I’ve somewhat lost track of seats, stands, ground grading requirements etc, so forgive the simple question: is this stand, once finished, all that’s needed to make BM play-off/promotion compliant?

Hope they can remove the barrier behind the hard standing at the West End, so that we can use the grass bank for the Kidderminster game. I think the barrier was in place, to allow heavy equipment to get round for the construction of the new stand.

I'd imagine the requirements in future will be some kind of area with power sockets, wifi access and a desk area of sorts for journos. Could potentially be built into the stand of course. Filming, perhaps we can get a platform next to it - depends on the restrictions because of the damned pipe. Might be ok as it might not restrict access in the way a stand with foundations would.

Carrier pipe under the pitch was supposed to supply water for future toilets, internet, power etc.
Balcony seems to be the best viewing position for filming and commentary. Also better for displaying ground advertising signs on media, which would improves sales and rates.
