Had a row with a bloke in the Bells the other day - swears he had a box at the old Den, I said there weren't any. am I right ? It may have been the one he stood on to see over the wall.

You must have been "posh: Oldehip. What were the :Director's Heads" like . Did you have to wade through a kle deep piss to get to the porcelain? Like we mere peasants had to on the terraces.

They did have one or two boxes at the old Den at the back of the main stand. I think they were put in the season we were promoted to the old first division along with the work the club carried out to create the family section.

The only reason I know this was because when we played reserve games in the afternoons I used to sit in that stand. They weren’t too grandiose just a small area and a few seats behind a bit of Perspex.

100 % no boxes to buy at the old den.
Any of the refurbishment that was done when we got promoted to old division one didn’t include that.
