Brinkburn Road (Darlington Railway Athletic)

This will be a quick one for several reasons. Firstly, I’m currently stood in my dad’s sweet shop in Lytham St Anne’s. I’ve got better stuff to do (such as eating) than provide you with free entertainment. Secondly, actually no, that’ll do. So here we go…

Brinkburn Road is a canny little ground that I’ve inadvertently driven past every week for the last couple of months to record my weekly show on Star Radio. Do feel free to listen, Sundays between 9pm-10pm.

Anyway, there’s only one stand but it looks a decent size and a nice structure. The rails around the pitch are all painted red and white which is a nice touch too.

But mainly, for us football tourists, it’s a doddle to see inside from the road. There’s loads of little gaps in the fence outside and while you can’t get all the way round, it’s not like there’s much to see from the other side.

So all in all, it’s worth a visit. Not loads to see but you’ll catch it all from the road and for that reason it gets a thumbs up from me.

UPDATE FROM WOODHORN LANE

Exciting news – they’ve moved the old stand round to the other side of the ground, or at least started. I’d hoped they were going to put it behind one of the goals but it still helps make this a far bigger looking ground.

Finally, do me a favour and buy my book, will you? Cheers.
