On Monday I said that I knew this one’s tough (but I also knew that some who follow me on twitter support the club who still play at this ground)… Did you recognise this ground?’ This is a newspaper cutting from the opening of the new main stand when the club who play here decided to have a garden party to celebrate. I also gave the following clues: ‘The club still play at this ground, although all four sides have been completely rebuilt since the image was taken. The photo was taken in 1907. One of the players seen is called Ferguson.‘
I know it was tough but if you support this club you probably got there in the end. It’s actually Blackburn Rovers’ Ewood Park.

I had planned to run ‘Historic Name That Ground’ only during the close season as in previous years, but it’s proving of interest so I’ll keep it going for a little while yet. 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. You can email me at gary@GJFootballArchive.com Thanks.
