I think this is an appropriate moment to say a big thank you to those on this Forum who provided me with valuable background information.

Unfortunately the Stasi & Freiburg stories didn't make it into the final version as the Publishers wanted to keep the focus on Non League and space was limited. There was also a pic of the Newcastle dugouts that had to make way for Alan Curbishley's Foreword, but a pic of the hi-tec Brondby dugout did make it.

However, I did point Sky in the direction of Freiburg and was delighted to see them include footage of the infamous strandkorb in the feature. If anybody has purchased the book, I hope they like it.

Best of luck with this, David - a most noble and worthy project. Here's the link. Looks an absolute steal at four quid, so I'm going to order mine right now with 'Damned United'.

You can view sample pages and read reviews to date at http://www.pyramidpassion.co.uk/html/dugouts_book.html

Although the book has been published, I am still searching for further noteworthy examples, wherever in the World they may be; not to mention interesting dugout stories.

Please drop me a line and/or email me any photographs: portable dugouts (canvas covered / on wheels); derelict dugouts; brightly painted dugouts; odd designs; dugouts with doors & hanging baskets; dugouts in spectacular or industrial settings ... anything!

Several of the dugouts featured in the book have already been demolished in order to comply with grading regulations so in some cases it's a race against time to record them before they disappear (or fall down).

On being shown round the (then) new Walkers stadium I asked why the dugouts were different in size. I was told that making the home one twice the size of the away one was a deliberate ploy to affect the opposition. It continues in the dressing rooms where the home one has a kickabout area and superior equipment but the away one doesn't.
Hasn't worked up to now as most away teams leave the place with one or three points...

Tactics like that usually galvanise opposition players.

Very interesting on the Walkers; it's almost Beckesque.

I've just been given this for my birthday (which was five weeks ago, but that's another story). Excellent book, and some lovely photos. Very impressed, David.

Now, start researching the corner flags volume...

I've beeen touching myself while reading this for some weeks now. I only put it down for the latest issue of Groundtastic (now all colour with non-league stadium double spreads etc.).
