A-list A-frames - Plymouth Argyle FC

The Pilgrims have a long history of distinctive on-field hardware.

Standard A-frames suited the early 60's

While something more boxy (or more Manchester City) were thought to be required for the 70's and the visit of Pele

The boxy white stanchions were eventually replaced by distinctive black hardware that served Home Park from the mid-90's to stadium redevelopment (and boxnets) in 2002.

Check out the old film clip below, where the ground staff are filmed erecting the cross bar, beautiful.
