McCain Stadium: Gates should have been kept

I was born and bred in Scarborough and have always supported Scarborough Football Club.

I moved to Surrey 28 years ago and still kept up with the club’s progress etc. I was very sad when the ground closed but even more sad on a visit to the town this week. I could not believe the state the ground was in. It is an insult to every fan of the club to let the ground get like that.

Mostly I do not understand why when the ground closed no-one thought it might be respectful to the club to take the gates and install them in the new site. I have seen some memorable matches there and it is sad to see it in the state it is today.
