The Experiance

.
This stand offers the best views of the ground. The steep upper tier means your very close to action, although the railings from the upper tier can impede your view a little bit. The Lower tier also has some great views, but it is exposed to the elements, particularly the sunshine and the rain. If your in the Upper Tier, you can get alcohol up to 15 minutes before kick off. Fans in the lower can not get access to the upper tier, so its no booze for them.

THE BANKS'S STAND
 
Capacity 2400
   
Found Here Disabled Facilities, Family Lounge, Study Center
   
The Experiance
..
.
This is the Club's family stand which offers a very friendly atmosphere. It is sometimes halved if someone brings a big away following, allowing them to have a larger allocation. The view tends to be poor because of the supporting pillars. 
   

.

WILLIAM SHARP STAND
 
Capacity 1900
   
Found Here PA Announcer, Policy Box, LSD Promotions Office.
   
The Experience
..
.
The William Sharp Stand is usually used as the Away End. It has seats bolted on to old terracing which limits leg room.  There are restricted views because the stand has 4 supporting pillars.
