Yep, let's play in goal next week. Would have more movement than the present incumbent.

Looks dead smart around there now. Also I like the ‘welcome to our club shop’ sign as well, very welcoming.

Better than a shoddy portakibin tacked on the side. I'm sure it'll be upsized when the ground and crowds improve.

Collected my cup ticket today and stood beneath the canopy for the first time. Neither elated or deflated being stood beneath it. Definitely not worth posting on Stagsnet about it.............

Damn, done it again

I don't see what purpose it serves, you'll get wet queueing to get under the canopy.

I have stood under the canopy, but it wasn’t raining, so can’t tell if it was any use or not.

It might be like the cover in the away end at Forest Green Rovers.
Can we play Accrington Stanley every week.

I’ve booked the day off work tomorrow so I can go and stand under the canopy to get a real feel for this.

Anyone know if the club plan to do guided tours with some history on canopy’s thrown in? it’d be a big hit with us canopy followers.

Have just seen the Channel 4 presenter, Kevin McCloud, at the ground. Does anyone know if he is a Stags fan or filming for his new series, ‘Grand Canopies’?

Why not join The Canopy Spotters Club? It's not just football, they spot canopies all over t'sporting spectrum, from bog snorkelling to MOTO GP.

In the rainforest most plant and animal life is not found on the forest floor, but in the leafy world known as the canopy. The canopy, which may be over 100 feet (30 m) above the ground, is made up of the overlapping branches and leaves of rainforest trees.

Seems odd the club would choose a canopy to put above the ticket office.

That's the rainforest, yet in woodus its a piece of material slung over two washing lines. Strange world we live in, it seems the club have gone for something in between.
