Dugout of the week

Nothing like a good old bus shelter

Nothing like a good old bus shelter

This week’s dugout of the week comes courtesy of Alton Town FC. The Hampshire based club seem to have nicked their local bus shelter to employ as a dugout – but at least you can sit in it, unlike Hurtspierpoint FC’s excuse for a dugout in my first edition! Oh I can here all the elderly folk crying out over their stolen shelter.

Alton Town FC ply their trade in the Wessex League Premier Division, and way back in the 1972-3 season they reached the first round proper of the FA Cup! They play their home matches at the Bass Sports Ground which seats 120 people and also has a small Director’s Box. Not too shabby for a non-league side.

At least after a disappointing home result, the Alton boys can expect the local bus to come and pick them up!
