think you will find capacity was cut due Bradford fire in may 1985 mishi. All very sadThe old Champion Hill ground was all but comdemned....the safety certificate at a ground that was widely acknowledged as having a 30,000 capacity in it's pre-war heyday, was cut to 300, post- Hillsborough, and for a time only the centre of the old main stand could be used for spectators. Thus this tie was switched to Salter Road.
I'm surprised you don't recall, as such a long standing fan, but I guess time flies & it's easy to forget.
Probably a combination of the two, but we really got hammered after Hillsborough, when all grounds with large capacities were looked at, turned out some of our wiring hadn't been updated since the ground was opened! The capacity later increased in the last couple of years, when a few steps were concreted at the bottom of the old terracing, and the rest of the huge old terraces fenced off. While we were still playing at the old ground, in the last few months, the cover on the far side, come down, in preparation for Sainsburys, being built on the old Top Pitch behind.think you will find capacity was cut due Bradford fire in may 1985 mishi.

The Admiral kit looks burgundy ?
any idea what shirts we were wearing ?
Shorts blue with white and burgundy stripe
Those shorts were the old 1970s Admiral England shorts - royal blue with red/white stripe. We usually wore them with royal blue shirts with a pink collar, but for a couple of seasons we wore all sorts of strange kits, even for home games: there was an all red with white trim, an all white with blue trim, and sometimes the all yellow with blue trim away kit was worn at home.Those are just drill tops, always pink n blue for matchday!
