Tuesday and it was on board a Naarich bound Stadler Bi-mode Basil, QR code E match ticket on my phone at the ready. A swift pint in the Glasshouse and then we were striding down Prince of Wales Road in a sea of yellow and green, once home to all man and woman and inbetweeners could want from the night time economy, now just dusty empty shells in the main. Covid has shafted most of the night clubs and eateries.
Up the concrete steps and first sight of a fantastic pre season billiard table sward for the first time for two long years, glistening under the lights. 10,000 in as well. Soak it all up.
