What Is Gigg Lane Like?

The Gigg Lane football ground was completely rebuilt in the 1990’s with the Cemetery End being the last stand to be completed in 1999. The new stands which are all covered, have vastly improved the overall look of the ground, whilst at the same time making it an all seated one. The only real disappointment is three of the stands contain a number of supporting pillars. On one side is the Main Stand. This all seated stand has its spectators area raised up above pitch level meaning that supporters have to climb a small set of steps to enter it. Part of the front has a small box-like structure, with a number of windows running along the front. It particularly caught my eye, as with the windows being almost at pitch level, I wondered just how many broken windows they get each season? Oddly the players tunnel and team dugouts are set to one side of the halfway line, suggesting that at some point the pitch has been moved from its original position.

Opposite is the Les Hart Stand, a single-tiered affair which extends around to meet the Cemetery End, enclosing that corner of the stadium. In this corner, there is a small Police control box suspended beneath the roof plus an electronic scoreboard. The Les Hart Stand also has a small TV gantry, plus there are a number of supporting pillars running across the stand that may impede your view.

The Cemetery End itself is a fairly simple covered seated stand. At the Manchester Road End is a larger covered seated stand that is given to away fans. It is a fair size however, it does not run the full width of the pitch, with one side ending with the edge of the penalty box. There is also an electric scoreboard at this end. The stadium is completed with a set of modern looking floodlights.

During 2017 the ground was renamed ‘The Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane’ in a corporate sponsorship deal.arking for One Car at Bury Football  Club . This club will recommence fixtures at Gigg Lane Bury in the near future
