Slightly different "ready for the new season" angle, but I was at Trailfinders today, and I made it a point to check out what has been done during the offseason. Now, there's still some time to go before the first preseason game, but I was a bit disappointed to see no indication of any additional bar under the new stand, which is what had been rumoured last year. However, the grassy area that used to be used for overflow car parking is now completely paved, and marked off as a proper parking area. That probably triples the paved parking space that was previously available. I'm not sure that you can fit any more cars, but it will be easily accessible in all weather, and the new stand should protect them from Peter Lydon's boot.

The Mennaye pitch has been dug up, new drainage put in and re-seeded. It's looking good, despite the lack of rain (until yesterday when it hammered down). Pirates start with three away games, so plenty of time for it to be ready for the first home game.

Are you sure that the new stand is high enough to guarantee that? Big smile

The underside of the new stand is being worked on . I am not sure what is being built but rumour was additional WC`s and a bar. There is a new Ealing Trailfinders Pro team gym behind the Damian Bugeja Stand, opposite end to the new stand. It is three times bigger than the pro side gym and allows a specialist `recovery gym`! to be used within the original gym area.

Agreed. This offseason is excruciatingly long, and Ealing even got an extra week of games...

What happened to the away kit rule stating that away strips had to be predominantly white?

Lord only knows when that ceased to be applied - remember the lovely beige number the Knights had?

It certainly wasn’t allowed last season when Coventry with blue and white hoops for main kit were prevented from having red and white hood for change kit, because both kits included white.

If that has ever been a rule, it is ridiculous.

1) if the team plays predominantly in white, their 2nd kit would be very similar.

2) I would have thought a teams 2nd kit should be a single colour which is nothing like their first kit

In our first season in the champs it was suggested our away kit should be mainly white....sadly we now seem to be going the way of wendyball

I believe that the current guidelines on kit state that a club’s alternative kit should be predominantly different from their first-choice kit. Clubs no longer need to have a ‘home’ and ‘away’ kit, they can if they wish, the alternative being, first-choice and second-choice. The overriding consideration is that the kit on the team playing away should be a complete contrast to the home team. The RFU process is straightforward, imho. It’s up to the clubs how to choose their colours !
