Part of the Pop Side given to Leeds United fans

THE SHEER demand for tickets from Leeds United fans has prompted Torquay United to hand over a section of Plainmoor's Popular Side to visiting supporters for the pre-season friendly on Friday, July 27.

After just over 1,500 tickets – 1,050 on the Away End Terrace and 500 in the new Bristow's Bench grandstand – sold out quickly, Leeds asked for and got another 500 this week.

The 'Bench' has seven seated sections marked out 'T-O-R-Q-U-A-Y' in yellow and blue seats, and Leeds have been given 'T' and 'O'.

The Pop Side segregation will be done with two lines of stewards.

Giving any part of the 'Pop' to away fans has always been a difficult subject, and something which the current board has never done.

But the feeling is that this is an occasion which warrants it.

General manager Andrew Candy said: "Leeds are a very well supported team, even for pre-season friendlies away from home.

"This is an opportunity to ensure that we get as many people as possible into Plainmoor. It makes financial sense, which we're sure Torquay United fans will recognise, and as it's a friendly, our supporters will not be disadvantaged in any way.

"We are not anticipating an adverse reaction.

"All the indications are that our fans are comfortable with it, and we've seen messages from Leeds supporters saying that they appreciate the extra tickets we've sent them."

Candy stressed that United are not planning to repeat the Pop Side 'split' for any competitive matches.

    All Leeds Fans are welcome to the Riveria as long as they bring a white handy with knots in the corners to protect their heads from the sun and bucket and spade for the beach, after sun and sunglasses, white string vests the ones with holes in of course they just ain't used to it uuuuup North.

    So be it. More money to us, which I guess is the whole point of inviting them. Don't think Leeds are a big enough draw (any more) for us to sell out the Popside ourselves if we limit them to the away end, especially seeing Bristow's Bench will be in use and some people will be moving across to try it out. I can't remember the last time a friendly sold out - Chelsea when Gullit was playing?

    It's probably not happened for a friendly before. I imagine that is the point of the story. Basically, Leeds will have more fans there than we will.

    Yeah, fair enough. Still no big deal though, we've done it before.

    I think the story is actually about the Leeds fans being given part of the 'Pop' side to supplement their tickets in the Away end and on the Bench. Might be wrong...
