Think a few folk are going to be surprised and yes some will complain about the new structures!
Actually 2 stands.
Smaller one about 200 seats situated between the touch line and 20 mtrs line rows of 15 seats with 12 rows I think. That one is closest to the entrance.
The larger structure starts at 20 mtrs line and goes out beyond the touch line, so if you sit on far right edge looking fwd you are looking at the side of the main stand, I don’t know if you can see the corner flag at the far end. Positioning is a bit odd and will raise comment but it’s 15 rows of 45 seats each row
In total think it’s close to 900 extra seats.

Work is still ongoing behind the sticks so if there is another stand going in there I don’t know.
Stop clock at both ends are in place don’t look to have power yet, but a bit of work in progress today.

Wouldn’t worry. The construction people will winch the stands into one over the cement foundations behind the sticks. The larger is only so far to the right there as there is more space in the old car park. Here’s a screenshot & you can see the current position before being bolted together to make one stand. Not sure why you think they'll be left where they are!

They are not going to be moved by Sunday that’s for sure
As I said there is still a lot of work going on behind the sticks, but that’s far from complete, there are no cement foundations there now.

Torbrek. Interested in yr suggestion. Why build 2 sets of foundations? Hope your right, but it seems daft to build a base for current structure only to say they are going to build another base and move it!

Are there any London fans or club officials who have any information regarding the new stand. Will it be in place and ready for use on Sunday.
Thanks.

Smile facts
There are 2 stands available at the entrance end of the ground one holds about 200 fans it is situated between the touch line and the 20 mtrs line. The other stand is about 700 seats and is from 20 mtrs line out about 15 seats on each row are beyond the touch line!
Of course it will be open it has to be to comply with regs

A cropped screenshot from the Ealing Trailfinders RU site this morning. All the construction stuff is still fenced off behind the sticks so it looks extremely weird. The new bar/bogs/shop won't be open that's for sure. It will be very odd if they are left as they are. Still, we can all see for ourselves tomorrow.
