The old scoreboard that used to sit on top of the East Stand at Filbert Street is shown here celebrating a goal against Nottingham Forest thirteen years ago.
It may not have been state-of-the-art even in 1997, but we liked it. For years everyone in the Main Stand would shout ‘Scoreflash!’ whenever that message would blink on and off, in anticipation of news from elsewhere.
Due to an untimely entry into administration the Walkers Stadium scoreboards are no better. In fact they are worse, looking positively stone age when compared with most clubs modern ‘jumbo-trons’.
And worse still, they are no fun. Not like the old East Stand scoreboard…
