Tell me your memories of Worcester City's St George's Lane ground
9:30am Wednesday 27th February 2013 in Sport
IT is quite incredible to think that, in just a few months time, the St George’s Lane ground will be no more.
In fact, there are just five more home matches to go before the bulldozers move in to demolish 108 years of Worcester City history.
Of those, just three are on Saturdays, while there is only one more Monday night fixture left. The other is on Easter Monday.
When put like that, it makes you realise what the club, and indeed the city in general, are about to lose for ever.
Sadly, given recent attendances, it also makes you wonder how much people actually care. Looking at the gates, it could just be any other season at the Lane.
The hoped-for bumper crowds flocking out of nostalgia haven’t materialised.
There is almost certain to be a capacity crowd for the final game against Chester on April 27 but almost half of that could be made up of away fans.
City’s last campaign at the Lane, it seems, has not captured the imagination of the wider public. Which is a real shame. The old place deserves a better send-off than that.
Which is why I am asking fans to tell everyone what they will most remember about visiting the Lane.
What was your favourite match and why? Which players do you recall most fondly? What have been the highs and lows? Were you taken there as a child and have been going to games ever since?
In essence, what does the Lane mean to you?
