Now the club is giving you the chance to own a piece of history by buying seats from the stand itself as a ‘permanent reminder’ of The Old Pavilion.
Work is due to start soon on the new Somerset Pavilion, so the club is offering supporters the opportunity to buy the seats now before the existing building is demolished.
As the club website said:
“Spectators in the Old Pavilion have witnessed some amazing cricket throughout the years and have also seen the game’s greatest names take to the field here at The County Ground. From Bradman to Botham, Richards to Trescothick and Gimblett to Caddick all the household names have entertained the Somerset faithful and if those seats could talk they would have some wonderful tales to tell.”
Seats cost just £15 each (a minimum of 2 must be purchased due to the linkage of the seating). To buy your seat simply call the club’s Commercial Team on 0845 337 1875 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
All monies raised will go towards the Somerset Pavilion Appeal, which is raising funds for the new building which will bring the ground to the standard required to host international cricket.
We’d love to hear from any readers of The Incider who buy any of the seats from The Old Pavilion! Let us know what memories you have of the building and what use you decide to put the seats to! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
