FL will know the answer ...

I believe the "Scratching Shed" at Otley RUFC is being torn down any day now ? I also believe it is worth a visit and the backdrops are decent as well ?

Can you confirm this ?

It appears to be true, unfortunately. The stand, located behind the Chevin End posts at Cross Green, was condemned recently following a structural survey recommended during the ground's annual West Yorkshire Fire Service inspection. The players run beneath the stand in getting to the pitch from the dressing rooms. It was built using timbers rescued from the original main stand when that was replaced in the mid-1930s. Roof contains asbestos, too, it would seem. Club secretary Marc Lawrence should be able to provide a demolition date. His mobile number and email address are on the Otley RUFC website. At this stage, it is uncertain what will happen to the terrace when the stand is removed. And, yes, the scenic views of the Chevin rising behind the stand are very fine.

Otley have three home league games left this season. I'd have thought it would make sense to leave the demolition until summer. They could close the stand and, in the meantime, maybe get the players to walk round the back and side of the stand to access the pitch. Home fixtures (all 3pm) remaining are Leicester Lions (March 1st), Luctonians (March 29th) and Hull (April 12th).
