It’s mildly interesting reading in terms of the history of Wakefield FC. Essentially, Emley were offered the use of Belle Vue as their ground near Huddersfield didn’t meet ground requirements. Not only did the club relocate to Wakefield, but they quite quickly changed their name too, several times.
In terms of Belle Vue it’s an odd one. Slap bang in the middle of streets it has a very old school feel to it. However, a stand made up entirely of Portakabins doubling as corporate boxes isn’t much to my liking at all. We saw them at Cardiff Arms Park and here’s another rugby ground featuring them. Horrible things.
Woodhorn Lane Update
A stunning week at Ashington! Just look at the front of the stand! There’s glass and the club’s name – very exciting stuff.
And don’t let the lack of Woodhorn Lane pics put you off buying my book!
