Northburn Sports and Community Centre (Cramlington United)
It’s undeniably low-rent, but it’d be harsh to exclude this Northern Alliance ground.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m quite tempted to. It’s essentially just a football pitch with a fence around it.
However, the addition of some dugouts, even if they have seen better days, makes this a football ground in my eyes.
Coupled with some floodlights, it just about scrapes through. Pretty much its only plus point is that you can see it all very easily. So is it worth visiting if you’re in the area? No. But at least I’ve done it for you.
Even if you don’t count this ground as being proper, my book is absolutely real and proper.
