There definitely was red shale for some time at the railway end LL. I'm sure we painted the railings white in the 70's.

Carn't remember shale at Railway end. I remember being in that corner where the wall was against Wake when the home record league crowd was there (11,000?). I would be about 12 at the time which would be 1962/3. I thought the concrete terracing was there then. If I remember right the scoreboard at that time was at the POR end in the corner where the tea hut is now. Carn't for the life of me remember when the scoreboard changed ends though.

I seem to remember coming up to watching a game in the early 70's and the scoreboard may have been at the railway end, I would guess at around 1973
To be a ROVER is a privilege not to be taken lightly, with fans like ours, we will always be honoured.

Another clue is the old training lights which shone across the juniors pitch behind the railway end. It was grim in them days, like training by candle light. I can't remember when they were taken down, but it must have been no earlier than the eighties, but before we first got floodlights, so I would guess at 1983.

1983 would be my choice too.
