    It is oddly positioned, as you say.

    But looking at the site on Google Earth, which also has still photos taken during construction, it seems that two sides of the ground were unavailble/unsuitable, since one end was hemmed in by trees (therefore no access), while one side backed onto another pitch, which BCC won't have wanted to lose.

    Meanwhile, someone asked about the funding - one of the stands has a sign sayhing it was supported by 'Sport NI' (Sports Council).

    Crusaders have received planning permission from Belfast City Council for a new main stand at Seaview:


    (Computer generated image)

    "Plans include a new 1352 seat stand, changing facilities, spectator deck and an upgrade of existing floodlighting.

    There will also be community facilities, new turnstiles and car parking."


    And from another angle:



    "Meanwhile, in a separate development, the club has submitted a planning application for a new centre of excellence at Three Mile Water in Newtownabbey, County Antrim.

    Crusaders say the scheme comprises two full-sized 3G pitches, small sided games pitches, multi-use games areas, a changing pavilion and limited spectator facilities."




    Which just leaves the small matter of getting those chancers at Stormont to get their finger out of their hole and finally release the 36m stadium funding which has been promised to the game in NI for over a decade.

    Ribbon-cutting ceremony in 2125?
