“After nearly a year of hard toil, the U’s book on the club’s stay at Layer Road is nearing production time.
We have been very fortunate to receive nearly 150 contributions on the U’s time at their former stadium, including former players, chairmen and supporters alike.
In the soon to be published ‘My Layer Road’, U’s fans remember the Layer Road years, as we bring together a collection of memories, anecdotes and never seen before photos which sum up the essence of one of football’s quirkiest football grounds.”
From the years of the Second World War that saw the stadium used as a Wardens Outpost to the match against Leeds United that saw Don Revie’s all conquering side beaten convincingly to the astonishment of the world’s media, the more notable events at Layer Road are chronicled by those that watched on from the terraces, as well as those that created the stories on the pitch.
Alongside the big stories, there are also the very personal memories of fans, players and staff as the tales of a very special football ground are committed to print in this limited edition book.
