Westfield Lane (Frickley Athletic)
I mean, perfect might be overdoing it a bit, but at the time of writing I’ve had half a bottle of wine and all seems well with the world. So I’m going to say it.
Certainly, it ticks every box I’m looking for. A rickety old main stand with a bit of character? Check.
Plenty to see from outside, including some lovely scenery beyond the mish-mash of corrugated metal running half the length of one touchline? Check.
What looks like it might have been a big terrace that’s just overgrown now and looks a bit weird? Check.
In fact, it’d even satisfy the needs of people who’ve accidentally clicked onto this blog thinking it was “tractors I can be bothered to visit”. It happens a lot.
But anyone, a decent little ground. I’m getting back to my wine glass…
Woodhorn Lane Update
Not much left to do really, I think we’re all just waiting on the club announcing its opening. One curious thing though – is that a bin in front of the stand? It seems an odd addition, particularly this early on.
