Coalville can't be classed as a stadium?

Wasn't there one where the away end was like standing in a concrete gutter and the toilets were just a wall to urine up? I have some flashbacks of somewhere horrible and possibly one of the reasons I didn't do many away games in that season.

Without doubt Belle Vue, a crumbling empty ground and we were crammed in a cage.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Could be Bootham Crescent, York or Saltergate, Chesterfield. Both had cabriolet ‘toilets’.
