In May 1985, Plainmoor was virtually destroyed by firing, and was not rebuilt for several years. This resulted in very poor facilities, for both fans and players. For several years the changing rooms were a couple of Portacabins, located behind one of the stands!
Things have changed though, as there has been much redevelopment during the late 1980s and early 1990s. A all-seater Family Stand, replaced the old Mini Stand. This new Family Stand also includes the club shop, a pub, a restaurant (Boots and Laces), and the 200 Club bar.
The old Cowshed has also been replaced, making way for the new Popside, and the new Sparkworld Stand was opened to accommodate away fans at the start of the 2000/2001 season. This is rather a novelty for away fans to be located in a new stand!
