The auction at the Gay Meadow

On Sunday 17 June, Shrewsbury Town auctioned off the fixtures and fittings from the Gay Meadow, their home since 1910. On Wednesday 27 June, I visited the New Meadow to choose my seat for the next season. Pictures from both these events are here.

27 June 2007

Visit to the New Meadow

I stopped off at The Grove on the way, which has a handy chip shop next door

And then The Brooklands, which is the nearest pub to the New Meadow

I went down the tunnel

And saw the new dressing rooms

The catering facilities weren't quite finished

At least the seats were blue and amber

Mowing the pitch

And I picked my seat

A few weeks later, I attended my first match at the New Meadow and by coincidence I arrived just as they were laying my brick:

Pictures from the last match at the Gay Meadow are here.
