New stand at Bramall Lane

September 2, 1895
The new stand erected at Bramall Lane (Sheffield United) will be ready for use in this evening’s match. It will not be quite completed in all arrangements, and I understand that later on there will be three prices of admission thereto. It is a large and commodious structure, and will probably hold about 4,000 persons.

It has been passed by the Borough Surveyor, and I am informed but the contractor that it is stronger than its model, the Liverpool stand, which has safely stood the weight of crowds and the storms of many winters.
