Following on from the demolition of the old grandstand at Ilkley RUFC, another museum piece on borrowed time is the structure at the Mint Bridge ground of Kendal RUFC, who play in National League Two North. It seems likely that the stand, a barrel roofed beauty made of wood and corrugated iron, dates from the ground's opening in 1927. Kendal have an agreement in place with a Cheshire developer to move to a site adjacent to Oxenholme Road. After one planning setback over a change of use at Mint Bridge, the developer has submitted a fresh application to the local authority. Kendal's ground, well worth a visit, is on the north-eastern edge of the town, to the left of the A6 as you head towards Shap and Penrith.
There's as much pride in this club as there is at Anfield - just fewer people showing it.
If you don't like it, don't ****ing come.
