Day 2 – Ground no. 23: St. Andrew’s, Birmingham City
It nestles on a hill top above the terraced streets, almost like a medieval castle – just a short walk from the city centre. Bathed in floodlights at night, the effect is stunning.
The two-tiered main stand with its pillars is a proper old school stand, yet the single-tiered L-shaped Kop and Tilton Road stands from the 1990’s match it impressively well. The concourse is not the usual modern parking house concrete, it is warm, open, spacious with good views of the pitch. No wonder, the atmosphere is good.
