Historic Name That Ground The Answer – Week 35

On Monday I asked you to name this ground. Did you recognise this ground? I said at the time: ‘This is a 1940s photo of this ground during a game. The ground still exists but it is no longer a Football League venue.’

The answer is Stockport County’s Edgeley Park. The game was a Stockport Boys v Salford Boys game which ended 1-0 to Salford. The Salford keeper in this photo is Evans and the Stockport number 11 is Kane..

Historic Name That Ground – Week 33 Answer

Well, did you recognise this ground? On Monday I asked: ‘Can you name the ground featured in the image above? This is a 1950s photo of this ground during a pitch invasion (bonus point for anyone who knows what this game was and why there was a pitch invasion). The ground remains a major sporting venue today and I’m sure many subscribers to my site will recognise it.’

The answer is Oldham Athletic’s Boundary Park and the game/pitch invasion? Those on the pitch were apparently Everton supporters celebrating promotion in 1954.

Historic Name That Ground – Week 32 Answer

Did you recognise this ground? This is a 1950s photo of this ground which I think is a relatively easy one to get although the players may have put people off the scent a little (bonus point for anyone who knows what this game was). The ground is no longer a major sporting venue today.

The answer is of course Highbury/Arsenal Stadium (whichever you prefer!). The game is Middlesex CCC v Arsenal FC. It was a 13 a side game played on August 11 1952 at the stadium. According to reports at the time this was the first floodlit cricket match to be played in England (though I’m sure there were earlier ones!).
