CAS Trust was one of a number of supporter groups who were consulted last year by the club about the design of new gates for the main entrance to The Valley.
The club had originally intended to commission the gates in time for the 25th anniversary of the back to The Valley match v Portsmouth on December 5th 2017. However, this meant that the timescale for consultation was far too short for any meaningful input from supporters but we are pleased that the club listened to our feedback and rescheduled the process. We believe that one of those clever people from the museum then came up with the idea of installing the gates to coincide with the 100th anniversary of playing at The Valley instead.
We understand that the existing gates will be installed at the Sparrows lane training ground.
