Our Impressions of St James' Park
Though the Grecians may be in some temporary [we hope] financial trouble the ground has in the last few years been redeveloped on two sides, spending some ?700,000 plus (which has probably led to the current financial problems).
Having traveled around the lower leagues and the conference in the last few years the Grecians ground is probably not the worst by a long way. And with a new capacity of some 10,500 it could possibly end up being one of the best.
