AT 9AM TOMORROW morning, the demolition of the Kingsholm Grandstand will start.
Workmen will pull the changing rooms out from beneath the back of the stand before removing the roof to leave the steel support structure.
So far Smiths, the demolition contractors, have removed four, 20-ton skips of rubble and Gloucester Rugby staff have filled a further four 10-ton skips after the ticket office and bars were demolished on Monday.
The temporary boxes will also be removed by Thursday night, leaving only the main Grandstand structure to be demolished.
Sean Roberts, Gloucester Rugby's Operations Manager said: "We are extremely pleased with the work to date and it is progressing quickly and efficiently.
"It has been an emotional few days because the Grandstand has a huge part in Gloucester's history but we are moving into the future and that is tremendously exciting.
"Tomorrow, major work will begin on the final phase of demolition before the site is cleared and prepared for the new build."
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
