The Horsfall Stadium is a frustrating place at which to watch football. 
There's a big stand that is more than adequate for Division 6, and plenty of room around the perimeter to stand and watch if that is your bag of beans, but because the stadium is an athletics facility, the stand is a fair distance from where things are happening on the field of play. So bring some binoculars with you!
Normally , in addition , the weather is foul, and you  risk double pneumonia whilst standing around the edge of the track at a cold magnet only bettered by the Bescot ( or whatever it is called today) and Fratton Park in February.Yes....the venue  attracts the iciest of winds as well as any Arctic plain does, so
visitors are always well advised to go for as many layers as can reasonably be
accommodated under the heaviest of top coats......and add one!


I have criticised the catering at this spot in the past, and with some justification,
but last year( possibly to reduce the queues waiting for nosh) the Yorkshire
club had extended the eatery.

 In so doing they had done away with the toilet facility that had previously been sited in close proximity to the food
, but I suppose we had to be grateful for the smallest of
mercies , as the eatery was now adequately staffed , the food was generally well receivedas far as I could make out.
