For what is left of this season the A&L. For next season The Clubhouse.

For either you have to like sitting behind the posts!

One advantage of the new CAT stand is that the prevailing wind tends to be from the west or south west so the stand will give better shelter from the wind and rain than the Goldsmiths.

Safety net and barriers all in place and the 'big daddy' of all Cranes is back on the pitch having buffed up Cocker's car to perfection. Could this be the start of Bill's long awaited roofing in? :smt023

I came past the ground an hour ago, and the big Crane was manoeuvring into position, but the wind might be too strong for anyone to go up on the roof. Plenty of activity at ground level, but it is invisible to the Cam, as it is on the Aylestone Road side. They must be close to being ready for the glass to go into the big outer window. Café across the road was doing brisk business :smt040

Workers stood near the top of the sloping roof earlier so I suspect they have already fixed a lot of the roof panels today.

The current forecast is for dry conditions on Sunday evening so the Munster supporters should keep dry either way :smt023

Looks as if they have sheeted the sloping section of the stand roof so some dry seats now available. Shouldn't take too long to finish the rest. :smt023

Photo just posted on the official Tigers Facebook page, taken from LRI, shows the sloped roof 99% covered, and part of the Aylestone Road facing flat roof covered, probably about 20%? Good chance that most will be covered for Sunday afternoon if the contractors work tomorrow :smt026

Good news indeed! Rain and wind forecast for tomorrow however.

On track for stand completion early 2016 and total block by start of next season!

The webcam seemed to show that work on the roof finished on Thursday. I imagine that the 'A' League game has been moved to allow access on Monday, with a view to completing the roof for Boxing Day.
