The Gym

The next major development came in 1905, when a gymnasium was built in the north-east corner of the ground, and opened for the start of the season in September. This is the oldest building still standing  – it currently houses the Lions’ Den and offices, but for many years the changing rooms were located here, and the players emerged from the door near the clock before running down the terrace onto the pitch. The clock was donated to the Club by Sir James Bruton and dates back to c. 1920, when he was President of the Club.
