Simonwoburn asked in our latest poll, what would you want the Doug Ellis stand to be renamed?

A massive 61% said back to the Witton Lane Stand.

16% said the Ron Saunders Stand

11% voted for the William McGregor Stand

An amazing 7% voted to keep the Doug Ellis Stand and only 4% said the Tony Barton Stand.

Just 1% went for the ‘I can’t stand up for falling down’ Elvis Costello option!!!!
