Editor Note:

according to most
the plural of haiku is…

Kevin: I recently went back to where our old ground Highfield Road once stood.
It’s now a large housing complex full of houses and flats.
Even though we moved to the Ricoh several years ago, I could still see in my mind our beloved old ground.
A lot of Cov fans wished we never left Highfield Road,but nothing lasts forever or stays the same,you sometimes have to move on. But no matter how many houses they build on our old places they can never take our memories away !
