Think Accrington 1958 and you'll get a pretty accurate picture of Yeclano Deportivo's La Constitución stadium. It is all corrugated iron sheeting and open terraces and you get the impression that one reasonably strong gust of wind will wipe the whole structure out. Yeclano currently play in Segunda B, but with no plans in the offing for a new ground, it would appear that this museum piece, weather permitting, will be around for a few years to come. Yecla is high in the mountains to the north of Murcia, so inclement weather at this time of year is not unusual. In fact, it probably freezes the structure of the stadium to the ground, preventing it from blowing away!
