Wouldn't it be pointless putting a roof on the eastern terraced with the wind and rain coming in from the Western part of the ground most of the time.If there is plans to terraced the Western side with a roof,this would reduce the wind that sweeps through the ground.Be great if it was to happen,but think it won't until the new car park ,training pitch and rest of the housing development is done first.

there was a fund set up in the 1960s to pay for covering the long stand and my father contributed , i wonder what ever happened to the money raised ?.

My late father used to tell me the tale that Webster's brewery from Halifax had agreed to build a stand on the long side for nothing, provided it had "Websters Brewery" painted on the roof. But the committee at the time declined the offer as it wasn't in keeping with the surroundings. There again he also told me the tale that back in the late sixties/early seventies we had the best groundsman in the RL but he left because the committee wouldn't buy him a new sweeping brush!
