Dean Street (Shildon AFC)
This was an unexpected bonus as I hastily headed through Shildon on my way to another gig, but it’s a brilliant Northern League ground.
Previously I’ve been left a little disappointed as grounds at this level are either new and so lack character, or have been in the dark and badly lit.
Admittedly Dean Street is probably no great shakes at night, but visiting during the day I got to see their wonderful main stand.
There’s also a covered terrace opposite and whilst viewing places from outside are limited, it’s totally possible and thus this gets the thumbs up from me.
Woodhorn Lane Update
It’s at that frustrating stage of looking like there’s not much going on. The brickwork is taking shape but to be honest I didn’t want to hang around taking photos of builders, so I didn’t spend much time there this week.
If you’ve got £2.99 burning a hole in your pocket, why not buy my book?
