Hang on, just remembered I travelled with some pals on a Tuesday night to Gretna (yes, really) for a PSF with some TNS -fan pals ... so make that 247!!

:roll: :twisted:
Added the Impact Arena today so that's at least 248, but in fact I think it's 252. I'll check my spreadsheet/anorak when I've got time

:roll:

Just totted my total up and it came to 91 which I think gives me the lowest total on here which is a kind of achievement. I used to think this was quite a high number....

Don't worry, there's plenty of time. I do have the advantage of having watched Hednesford in (thinks....) at least five different leagues, Villa from the top flight down to the third and back up again, five years of Welsh Premier football and sundry groundhopping around the UK including numerous Scottish grounds.

I'll never complete the PL/FL 92 though, too many clubs have moved grounds and I'm allergic to going south of Watford (in the south-east anyway)

It is 252 by the way, potential to add 4 or 5 more new ones this season but somehow I doubt if Lowestoft on a Tuesday night will be one of them

:roll:

253 up with FCUM, I may do Curzon Ashton (another trip up the A34/A50!) but I think that would be my last new one this season, unless I do any local "neutral" groundhopping

Don't think I'm going to catch Tony Incenzo who told us in the Flyde programme that Broadhurst Park was his 2000th, having done "the 92" by the time he was 17.

Anorak!

:roll: :twisted: :lol: :-D :mrgreen:

One to visit, about which they've been making a fuss on TalkSPORT this afternoon

http://www.sportbible.com/football/news ... t-20180504

You enter through the crocodile's head, apparently....

(Erm, no thanks :-D )

FWIW - at least 339, including 231 with Stourbridge.

Tonight will make it 232 with Stourbridge, but still 339 in total.

Good man, though no-one should have to go to St +ndr+ws more than once

Four times now, but it's taken me 30-plus years, and the last visit was 26 years ago before last night.

Birmingham City slotted neatly into the list between Bilston Town and Bishop Auckland.

Just think, some poor souls go there every other week during the season

I chalked up my 84th ground last night and updated my list on football ground map.com

At the same time I realised that I’d missed Mile Oak off my list.

Mile Oak's ground is a housing estate now..... perhaps I shouldn't have said that...

the Central Ground in Northwich where Wilton used to play is now the site of a Sainsbury’s - ever the optimist!

Coincidently, The Drill Field where Northwich Victoria originally played is also a housing estate.

Isn't Wilton in Oxfordshire, or somewhere darn saarf?

Don't confuse me, I'm old

Fair enough, I didn't think to check on Google Earth :(
I know that the Mile Oak pub was demolished and replaced with housing so thought the same had happened with the ground as the Club disbanded in 2010. Have they reformed?

Don't confuse him - he's old.

There's nothing here about a new club:

There is a picture of Mile Oak Rovers' ground on the footballgrounmap.com website but it was probably taken some years ago. The picture of Witton's Central Ground is obviously more recent as it shows no trace of the ground, only a supermarket.

Thought I'd count up my "92" list. Surprised myself that I've been to as many as 24!

Mind you, Peterborough was for an FA Sunday Cup Final, Wimbledon was to see a Kingstonian game nearly 30 years ago, Forest was for an England U19 match in the early 90s, and there are a few more like that too. The only ones I've added in recent years have been thanks to our Cup runs - Plymouth, Stevenage and Wycombe. I've lost more than I've gained through clubs relocating.

Only ever been to one Premier League game, and I'm proud to say I've never paid to watch one. I got a freebie at the Hawthorns for a game v Sunderland, and it wasn't even worth paying nothing to watch. Neither team had a shot and Sunderland won 1-0 with an og. And they say it's the best League in the World...
