No doubt in my mind what we've got.
That's the pic I was thinking of.
Squint and that's a Greens on Screen update

And re the Leitch connection, ours was designed by the Archibald Leitch & Partners company, to a design used by the dead Archibald Leitch, overseen by his son Archibald Leitch Jr. You'd have to be monumentally uncharitable to say it isn't a Leitch stand, probably the same people who say Plymouth had nothing to do with the Mayflower.
The authority on football stadiums Simon Inglis acknowledges that the Home Park grandstand was the last Leitch design built...Since my biography of Leitch was published, the confirmed list of his clients has continued to grow. It now appears that he worked at Chesterfield’s Saltergate, and, as many had suspected, that after his death his company also designed the Mayflower Stand at Plymouth’s Home Park in the early 1950s. More on this – the Leitch company’s last commission before it was wound up in about 1956 – can be read in Russell Moore’s new history Home Park, a Pictorial History.
You're a strange poster
I assumed with your intense interest in the grandstand, you were quite keen on it. And why the hell would you prefer a generic Doncaster type ground?
Also, it just IS a Leitch & Partners stand, that's a fact.
