The home of Eyemouth United begins a new little occasional mini series after a ridiculous adventure between myself and fellow idiot Lee Kyle.
This blog started life as away of documenting my travels after I’d decided to visit a football ground when I arrived at the town or city I was playing in. That soon changed into that being the main focus of the day, occasionally fitting in other stadiums along the way or driving via Penrith in the middle of the night to sneak another one in.
It culminated in me and Lee booking two nights at The Stand comedy club up in Scotland and deciding to visit as many grounds as we possibly could in the two days. We got through way too many (25) to run this every week for half a year, but I’ll intersperse the regular posts with updates from the grounds we visited, starting with Eyemouth.
Setting the story up has essentially excused me from writing too much about Warner Park, largely as there’s nothing to see. The views around it are spectacular, but save for two marvellous looking dugouts there’s not much else other than a clubhouse and the goals lying in the car park. Oh and a slightly weird amount of advertising hoardings for how small and unspectacular it is.
The ground is easily accessible for passing tourists to look at, the main problem is there not being much to occupy you once you arrive. The only interesting fact I can offer is that the venue used to be called Gunsgreen Park, but I’ve no idea why it was changed and have no real inclination to find out. Still, it was ground number one checked off our list, and the journey had started.
