not wanting to P on anyone's bonfire,but wasn't funding supposed to be in place and agreed for a specialist demolition firm to dismantle the stands and transport them over to fev? thats what i was imformed by a senior figure involved!..hate to think what the H & S gestapo would think of joe public clambering up and down the girders removing bolts etc :wink:

Technical stuff like that is left to the experts.We remove accessible electrical items (disconnected), remove seating from stands and prepare brickwork ready for transportation. If the H&S people show up, I hope that they bring some overralls.

Only just seen it in p n c that theres a chance some of the stands could be arriving as early as next week :blink::blink:

Anyone confirm we are in a position for this to be true :cool: or is it just another bit of 'accurate' reporting? :rolleyes:

When the terraces start to come down i'll be able to help though.

Been through today and a bit more pulled down (in a controlled manner of course!).

The stacks of concrete are the steps / seat areas that have been removed, finished em off today. :smile:

Bob's a smashing bloke. Made a wrong shout like as has been discussed, but a cracking fella nonetheless!

Cheers for the new photos, massive amount of work done.

Its gonna look fantastic when we have completed the work and get both stands up at Fev.

Whats the steel work looking like? The same as the seat frames, No rust? Just wandering if they in need of painting like I originally thought they would. Will probably be worth it while its down.

That will enable fans to help out at weekends when the framework arrives home.

This is a good idea everyone could join in and people could bring their kidds down and they can join in so everyone will look at stand and say i helpd paint that :D would be a good exhibition

What precautions are being made to guard against the metal thieves? Now that the railways are taking extra precautions to stop them chopping copper cables they will be turning their eyes elsewhere. I heard that thieves broke into Rovers' ground in the summer, damaged the back gate at the railway end and tried to use the crane type digger that's there to try and dig up the cables that feed the floodlights. If they know there's valuable materials left overnight they won't be able to keep away.

In the village where I live we have been without electricity for 8-12 hours three times in the last 3 years due to theives choppling down and stealing the overhead power cables. Can anyone up and about in the early hours of the morning please keep their eyes peeled for this kind of thing and report anything suspicious to the Police? Let's get them caught and locked up before they target the Rovers!

If its the concrete that's coming first then all I will say is if they can shift it, they can have it. They are very very heavy and a git to move, found that out when taking them out on Monday. Let em try and once a couple have been crushed, the rest will stay away!!! Sorted.

If I'm reading what's in the public domain correctly, in exchange for clearing the site, we get to keep whatever we want and dispose of as we see fit. Therefore they are ours to sell. If these Scarborough fans want a seat or two, why not let them come down and remove them, it'll save all you very generous volunteers a job.

A Scarborough fan who lives to the rear of the ground has collected seats and installed them in his garden as a memento.

Should hold bob crowther off for a few days ;)

A nucleus of about six have put in tremendous work to make all this happen. Covo and his small band of experienced helpers have been fantastic. What would the Club do without him?.Basically, just the skeletons of the stands now remaining and the concrete terracing and steps are now being transported over to Fev. Metal work to follow. Although going home K*******d, I have felt very proud to be assisting in my own small way.

We will get there.

Should be more convenient for everyone at this end. Plenty of painting the metalwork, (blue as opposed to the present white).
