The grand old lady of English football passed away in the summer of 2006. She left millions of memories. Players, managers and generations of Arsenal supporters keep the monument alive in their hearts.

Brady, Adams, Wright, Vieira, Bergkamp and Henry………..brilliant football players who lifted the reputation of their stadium sky high. West Stand, East Stand, North Bank and Clock End. High-bu-ry!

CLOCK END

clock_text

Highbury’s South Stand was originally known as the College End. When the iconic Arsenal Clock moved there, it became synonymous to that stand. The legendary Clock End was born.

Clock End became the scene of vocal battles with rival fans, flags, scarves, gooners and Arsenal players celebrating their goals.

We present a snapshot from the past. The late eighties. Clock End just before kick-off, a North London derby with an electric atmosphere. Exactly 30 years after the glorious first division title. Clock End as it used to be before the era of modern football.
