School Road (Squires Gate AFC)

“Hang on Andy”, I hear you say. “This looks dubiously familiar. You’re not repeating on us already, are you?”

Well firstly, stop being so rude. You hardly even know me. But secondly, I can see where you’re coming from. We’ve previously done Blackpool Wren Rovers – the two grounds literally share perimeter walls. So yes, you’ll see a bit of Wren’s ground in these pics. Specifically – the blue door is for Squire’s Gate, red for Wren Rovers.

This week’s subject score highly on a number of fronts. Firstly – short walls means it’s fairly easy to see into. Secondly, as has been discussed, there’s three football grounds within a quarter of a mile of each other in this part of town. So it’s easy to get a big hit.

And there’s also a couple of tatty looking banners at the back of one of the stands. Which themselves are old enough to differ a bit from the modern day prefabs found at this level.

There’s not loads more to add – but it’s certainly worth dropping by, if nothing else as an easy way to clock three football grounds within ten minutes. I’m not sure there’s anywhere else in the country you’ll be able to manage that.

Woodhorn Lane Update

Not a lot this week. But what looks like some glazers arrived yesterday, so maybe some windows starting to go in? Hopefully there’ll be more news on that next week.

Fancy reading some more football stuff from me? My Cup Upset is available from Amazon.
