Langlands Park

Watching the Tigers game against Tweed on Fox today and realised just how much good old Langlands has changed over the years. What's that construction on the eastern side? Is it going to be a two level car park or something. I watched an old game between the Devils and Easts from the late 80's just the other day and the change in the proximity of the ground to the clubhouse seems to have also changed.
It's a really good standard suburban ground. A credit to the club and the comp.

Yeah I noticed that too.

Haven't been to Langlands in a bit. I curse that fact that I have to work on Sundays....

The shift of the playing field was something I picked up when reading the Easts history book. A couple of overhead shots told the tale. It explains why people could sit in the old grandstand back in the 70s and have a decent view of the game whereas now they would be a long way from the action.

Whenever I'm there I see the old grandstand and wish they'd nice it next to the field. Even behind the posts or something. It's good to have a bit of history present.

That can't move it (as yet) because the Council are saying it's presents will change the water flow in a flood and will have a detrimental effect. Sounds like Bull---- to me. but the club has been at log-a-heads with them for years.

Yes the field has moved since the 80's but the club has more than doubled in sizes as well, so that
has an effect of perspective too.
