Scottish Third Division side Queen’s Park bizarrely ply their trade in the 52,000 seater stadium next door, but as their average crowds tend to be around the 400 mark, this has been used as an occasional alternative.
The last time it was home to any League games seems to have been the 1990s, although the Queen’s Park youth teams still use the facility and it was also used as a warm-up area for Commonwealth Games athletes in 2014 too.
There’s not loads to see but what there is can be viewed easily enough. The old white building used to be the changing rooms and is thought to be one of the oldest football buildings in the world, having predated the ground and being built in the 19th century when it was just farmland.
So it’s worth a visit. There’s a running track which would make it horrendous to watch a game at, especially as the uncovered seating is off to the side but hey, it’s another “two for the price of one” with big Hampden across the road, so get yourself over.
Woodhorn Lane Update
This week it’s very much car parks I can be bothered to visit. Not a lot seems to be happening externally at the moment, but the car park is coming along nicely and they’ve shifted the huge mound of dirt that was there after excavations.
My book? Certainly – click here if you fancy a copy.
