Our Impressions of Glebe Park

Glebe Park is probably one of the quaintest grounds in Scottish football, and it claims to be the only senior ground in Europe to have a hedge as one perimeter fence! It is a pleasant mixture of old and new, with 3 sides having a ramshackle charm, and one end being the sterile modern stand with all the ensuing atmosphere that generates (or not!!!)

Keep your eyes peeled if you've never been to Brechin before and are looking for the ground ? it is down a narrow laneway, which opens out to the car park. Just following the red and white scarves and hats may be the best option! The main stand is in front of you as you walk in, and the toilets, teabar and entrance to the seats are all found under this stand.

If you want to stand on the terracing, head round to the left of the main stand. This is the Hedge Side, which is four concrete terracing steps and no cover, and runs the entire length of the pitch. This leads to the covered terrace behind the goal (Cemetery End), and the Club Shop is situated at the far corner of this terrace.

On the opposite side of the pitch is the ramshackle old stand, which sits squat on the halfway line and seats 300. It costs ?1 extra to sit in here, and the players and sponsors lounge, press box, first aid post and dugouts are all on this side.
The pitch is lower than the surrounds and you get a great view from everywhere in the park, although the Cemetery End Terrace does have some pillars, and you may well be looking into the sun if watching from the hedge side.
