Featherstone got two stands from Scarborough Football ground for a cheap price and have used them to upgrade Post offoce Road to SL standard.

With that in mind, is the Weaste still standing and, if so, are any of the seats or stands or turnstiles or anything useable at Oldham to upgrade the ground to championship standard ? Just a thought.

Oldham already have part of the stand from the willows the concrete base is behind the current stand and the seats at a storage yard in oldham awaiting installation if and when planning and money allow .

If you go to whitebank and look behind the stand you can see the concrete base stood there and the seats are at a self storage yard in oldham and are visible if you know where to look, don't think i should give the location on the open forum.

if we are to go up we can't play at whitebank in its current state....thats a fact some don't like to hear


add a terrace & stand from the pics above and that'll be enough for us to stay at whitebank & play in the championship
