A friend of mine who works in the Amenities department at SBC has tipped me the wink that the Council are close to finalising a deal with uncle Ron to use the fourth side of the stadium as a store for the seafront deck chairs during the winter months.

Apparently the bank of earth that will form the 'fourth stand' and which is already affectionately known as 'Martin's Mound' is to be tiered to accommodate temporary seating.

The Council hope to achieve significant savings to their budget by slashing storage costs and will make a nominal charge to fans renting the seats on matchdays. They further hope to boost income by running a franchise to sell cream teas.

Personally, I can't say I'd fancy sitting in one of these on a cold January afternoon.

If we need extra seating we could always get some on the cheap from the Weston Homes Community Stadium as they are still in virtually unused condition :)
