Concerns about Saturday
« on: July 14, 2021, 10:49:35 AM »
Have you seen how narrow the turnstiles are? My advice is don't follow me in, you may have a long wait :D :D :D :D
If a drummer comes out of retirement,  will there be repercussions?

Fortunately it'll be T-shirt weather on Saturday. The biggest problem with narrow turnstiles may come later into the season if we get a midweek game in the winter months and we're all trying to get through the turnstiles with six layers of clothing on.

In many ways, tomorrow is the ground's first ever test event so it might be narrow turnstiles might not be the only gripe! The club have asked for patience as some teething troubles are highly likely. People getting lodged in the turnstiles was probably one they didn't anticipate!

Are turnstiles really any narrower than York Street? YS Townend turnstiles weren't very wide. Most things at stadium look to be built to modern best practices so surely they can't be much different to other stadiums?

Yeah, they will surely have been built to the right regulations, I think maybe it's just the brickwork that perhaps make them look a bit narrower on some photos. We'll find out tomorrow I guess!

Turnstiles are built to football league standards. Full height inside. Can’t see there being any problems.

The burger bars are closed today, so I think we will all be thin enough to get through by the time the season starts for real.

They look to be the length of a breeze block wide. At least it will stop any Wembley type rush on the gates ;D

I seem to remember Boston being dubbed "The Fattest Town in Britain" a few years back with one third of adults classified as being clinically obese. Don't know if it's changed since.

I guess the standards used for turnstile design are based on an average sized person so may not work very well if a significant proportion of users are above average size.

I know it was only a friendly, but very impressed today. Think we have a fans favourite already. Danny Elliott ran Lincoln's defense raggered . Very speedy.

What was it like for getting away after the game if you parked by the ground?

I will only be able to attend a home fixture every 2/3 months or so and was wondering if there will be any car park spaces available on the day. No so mobile these days unfortunately.
