I think the clubhouse may have had a minor fire and was renovated, thus the throw away comment at the Leeds game (sept/oct 84). I went to every game that season but used to pay in at the turnstiles near the allotments but on one occasion, The St.Helens game I think, Jan / Feb 85 Was a freezing day with the ground covered in snow I caught the supporters bus this day and paid in at the main turnstile, That's when, as I mentioned on a previous post first saw the burnt out shell of the clubhouse. Therefore I would say the PP fire was late 84, early 85.
The main stand fire was definitley Oct 85. I remember being at the match directly after it, we lost to Halifax ( The season they won the league) and I remember the gutted main stand being cordoned off. It was on my 19th birthday give or take a week or so.
