Annoyingly it’ll be barely visible if the ground itself isn’t open. Tucked away in the Newcastle suburb of Heaton, the club is over 100 years old but I’ll bet there’s a lot of people don’t even know it’s there.
A tiny prefabricated stand isn’t what we want to see, but is smaller than most similar efforts which at least wins it some good will. However, that’s not what got me the most excited. We have another winner of a football ground category.
With loads of residents using some of the club’s land as an extension of their garden, this comfortably wins the award for “most amount of greenhouses in a football stadium”. Even if it’s only two, I’ll be absolutely delighted if we ever see somewhere that steals its crown.
But regardless, the greenhouse action alone makes it a necessary addition to anyone’s travels.
Woodhorn Lane Update
So what happens when you spend ages complaining that nothing seems to be happening and you’re bored of looking at it? Deep fog for a week so you can barely see the thing at all. Unless they’ve knocked it down after my moaning. Oh dear…
