the original plan was to put them on the Skircoat side but as I remember it a ground inspection by the FA told FC Halifax that it was unacceptable and they had to be at the opposite side.

We went along with it to save having to move the dug outs for each different club game


How odd of the FA. Practically every stadium in the country has dug outs at the front of a populated stand so why is it different at the Shay? Unless they didnt feel there was enough space?

There's more space there than at the East Stand side. Just under 3m at far side.

i seem to remeber when the new stand was orgionally being built we moved the subs and coaching staff benches / dugouts. over to infront of the skircoat stand for a season

This certainly gives us a chance to get behind the players during interchanges and for the players and officals to be more at one with the fans

I suggested this a couple of seasons ago, But manily becasue one of the club officals excuse was (reading between the lines, i might add) he did not want to walk across to the skircoast side when the changing rooms were on the other side! (which they are no longer) we could now move the dugouts to infront of the skircoat

The chaning rooms are now not in the stand, so HFRLC, how about moving the benchcs over the the skircoast so we can get behind out team even more!



Welcome back Jonnie.

You been away :D

i think because the pitch had to be moved because of the east stand, there isnt enough room for the "control box" that they have in football.

There's a fair area taken up by benches.

Would they cover emergency exit gates?

from memory we have had the dugouts on the skircoat before, like a said in an earlier post was it around the 03/04 season, emergency gates were not a problem at that time, there is a fair distance between them.

Also from an ealier post it seems to be the FA (football) that were a problem on an H&S review who said no to the dugouts,not the rugby side of things

Therefore can this be reviewed and if so who needs to be contacted to review it?

Surley we can site that the stand is now a construction site again and therfore its dangerious! lets use H&s to our advantage for once!
