The Lonely Season - Crawley 1-2 City Report

Unless they had named it The Supply and Demand Silage Arena, or The Non-Cumulative Tax Basis Bowl, you’d be hard pressed to produce a less evocative name for a ground that has hosted some of my most enduring, and emotional footballing experiences.


The Stadium is the home of Crawley Town, and is where I watched us claw our way out of, and then back into, a pickle on the first day of the exiled Northampton season. Angry fans stormed the pitch and generally howled vaguely at the wraith-like forces dismembering our club, unsure of how to respond to a ten-point pre-season points deduction, coming back from 2-0 down to 2 all, and the subsequent 3-2 defeat.
