On Monday I asked: ‘Can you name the ground featured in the image above? The only clue I’ll give is that this is a 1960s image and this was a wet day. If you recognise the ground you’ll know why it was wet too.’ The answer is…
It is of course Shrewsbury Town’s old Gay Meadow ground. If you look carefully you can see the pitch was flooded. This image was taken in January 1968 when the pitch was under 2 feet of water. Shrewsbury were due to play Tow Law Town in the FA Cup that day.
Next ground on Monday. If you have an old image of a ground that you think it’d be worth including in this weekly quiz then please get in touch. They don’t have to be from the 1900s to 1960s – even ground images from the 70s and 80s may prove a challenge to identify these days.
