Torquay United FC., Plainmoor, TORQUAY, TQ1 3PS ‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’ Plainmoor is a proper football ground for sure….. accommodating   up to 6500 specs, with almost 3000 of them seated, and was a picture on a cold winter afternoon when last  we were there .   The   turnstiles for away fans are  just off Warbro Road, and Turnstiles are cash. The away end holds circa 1,100, away fans having the option of the Wollens Away Terrace (Standing) or seating on Bristow’s Bench (Block A Seating, Away Fans Only).   Usually  up to 500 seats are on offer Bristow's Bench Stand ( see header photo)on one side of the stadium. Both of these areas are covered. The acoustics in the away terrace are particularly good , and the view from the Bristow's Bench Stand is first class too, with decent  leg room .  Toilet  facilities are  rumoured to have improved since our last visit with the addition of  a modern toilet block, whilst refreshments

Wealdstone FC 1 Stockport County 4 ( Vanarama National League ) Saturday 27 November 2021

        ( Words & Images by hedgegrower- Andrew Machin`s images have now been  added as a Additional Gallery  at the end of this report !   A hat-trick from live wire County ace Ollie Crankshaw today, ushered Dave Challinor`s team to another top notch 3 points that takes     them up to seventh in the National League and well set for a challenge   for promotion. County`s red hot performance was in direct contrast to the prevailing weather conditions- the polar opposite in fact, and the 300+ who made the trip to support them deserved the kind of reward 4 more goals and another 3 points brought their way as they shivered whilst they sang on the covered terrace behind one goal. It was a decent showing by DC`s men who established control in the first half with Keane and Palmer letting nothing pass for County. It was the ideal base from which to begin to erode Wealdstone`s confidence and this started to crumble on 26 minutes with Quigley`s opener.    DC ready for the off !
