    I vaguely remember those exec boxes going in at Kenilworth Road. I think they were meant to be a temporary structure. Must be 40 years or so

    It was a non-league ground about 4 or 5 years ago :)

    But they are MASSIVE now according to their fans and are waiting to move to a million-seater new ground.

    I'm sure those boxes were connected with hockey. Was it a national centre when they had an all weather pitch?

    Are you confusing it with MK Dons's original home? That was the National Hockey Centre and a pretty crap football ground which I visited on opening day of a season when we first enjoyed the delights of Barry Conlon up front.

    You could be right about Kenilworth Road though - they had a plastic pitch for a while.

    I remember going there quite a few years ago, we were singing to the tune of when the saints go marching in;
    I`ve got a shed
    as big as this
    I`ve got a shed as big as this
    It`s got a door and a window

    That was the side of the ground demolished by Millwall in the mid-80s. It was a normal all-seater stand then.

    Yep i think you're right.
    Definately was the stand that Millwall 'wrecked'. So i would guess it was pulled down some time after 85.

    The ground they are moving to doesn't look good either....

    It's great that they are moving within the town centre though rather than the usual retail park
