Faces of Stradey Park
A fantastic farewell to a rugby institution. A 160 page full colour nostalgic sportsfest. An unmissable gathering of words and pictures. FOR 129 years Stradey Park was the home of Llanelli rugby. It was a stage for sporting legends, a cauldron of emotion. By 2008, however, it was time for the Scarlets and Llanelli RFC to move on. In a new era of high-tech stadia, this welcoming venue of great social gatherings had become a well-worn museum piece. This is your chance to relive forever the spirit of Stradey in its final days.
Powerful images and warm recollections celebrate its unique qualities and honour everyone from the burger sellers to the British Lions. Photographer Terry Morris and writer Andy Pearson were granted unparalleled access to the ground throughout the 2007-08 campaign. The result is an affectionate memory of Stradey Park’s farewell full season.
