When they won in 2011 at the CG it was the first time since 1973, the seemed to have turned into a Cheltenham since mind.

I can think of any other league clubs with three stands which makes them unique!
Northampton and Sheff Utd would be close before ground moves/redevelopment, Aldershot always use to have just a trawler net behind one goal making them in essence a 3 sided ground, weren't boremuff 3 sided for a while too?

Bolton had 3 and a half at Burnden Park. Oxford had about 6 stands at the Manor. Hexagon to triangle  Smiley

Depends on what you do, Morecambe (and from recollection Fleetwood as well) are basically three sided with a pointless terrace running along one long side of the ground.

Good post Pete but I was talking about now in the EFL!.
I did go to Aldershot late 70's when we lost in the FA Cup and there must have been over 10000 in the ground. Also went to Northampton and looked at the cricket pitch in 86 when Charlie Henry scored the winner

Fair point as I only went to the old Field Mill which used to have four sides

Think Huddersfield had 3 for a little bit whilst they were building their new one too.

I would be happy to carry on losing to Cheltenham and Oxford as long as we are winning leagues and promotions while they are not..

You should do what Arsenal did at Highbury and have a mural of fans.

Joey gave us an English gesture after his goal. Winning the league was better and his return visits to the County Ground very pleasurable.

Their current record of not losing to us is longer than their current stay in the Football League. Neither is acceptable in my book.
