New Temporary covered stand announced

Neil Perret of the Echo broke the news on Twitter tonight that it had been agreed by the AFCB board that the club would have a temporary covered stand at the south end of Dean Court for the start of next season. I think most of us expected a temporary stand after Eddie Mitchell's words a few days ago about having second thoughts on a permanent stand if the capacity was going to be inadequate for what the club really needed in the Championship.

There is still much discussion to take place by the sound of things over which fans will be placed in the temporary stand. Perret said Eddie Howe would be consulted on whether it will be all away fans or if AFCB fans would fill seats in the stand.

I understand there are concerns over the small contingent of away fans from Championship clubs this last season. I expect the Echo will have a full story in the morning.

Meanwhile, I also saw pictures today of a new pitch being prepared at Dean Court so things are already getting underway for the pre-season friendlies and next season.

How do you feel about the temporary stand?
