Buddies out of Love
September 2 2008
The move has been borne out of a need to service debt via the sale of the Love Street premises to Tesco in a £15 million deal. The gates to this historic venue will close for the final time in the New Year.
Club supporters are planning to celebrate the move with a march from Love Street to the new ground. Season ticket holders have had the opportunity to choose their seats and fans have been paying £60 a brick to have their names displayed upon a wall of fame.
Sports presenter, Chick Young, has bought a brick in memory of his late father and son. He said: "I was brought up on Glasgow's South Side and the Saints connection came because my step dad was a huge fan.
"I have bought my dad and Keith bricks with their names engraved in their memory in the new stadium. It's just a gesture, but it maintains the link."
