Nearly put this on the "unrelated to the Pitmen" forum, but far from it, I've seen HTFC on many of them....

Adding AFC Fylde to my spreadsheet after yesterday I've now seen games (and they only count if you pay to go in!) on 246 grounds, of which 91 are League grounds (old and new), 118 English non-league, 25 Welsh, 6 Scottish and 6 Other UK (eg Wembley and Hampden)

I'll ask a very good friend to update the spreadsheet in a format legible to most of you when he and I have a minute!!

Any advance on 246?? (I know that QPR anorak Tony Incenzo reckons he's done 1000 but he cheats by doing 3 in a day, and I only ever did that once.... :roll: :twisted: )

Have a look at www.wewillfollow.co.uk to see nationally what some fans have achieved with stadium visits.

At the moment, there's only one Hednesford supporter registered on that site - one Mark Bagshaw - who's been to 35 grounds. So anyone of the previous posters on this thread would beat that. Unfortunately, I think you'll need to take out a premium membership to record some of your non-league visits: not sure how much that costs if anything. Still worth a look I think.

I do know of a chap from Rugeley (Mugsy) that's been to many hundreds of grounds but he's not registered on wewillfollow either.

Personally, I've done fewer than you chaps - 140+ - but I'm a Wolves fan first, Hednesford second.

Surely they should be paying me....??

Only 8 potential new grounds for me to visit next season with the Conference North schedule as it currently stands

We need a couple more promotions yet....

Bizarrely I've developed the habit of just visiting random grounds while driving round the country with work. I'm not sure how many I've been to (I'll try and to it up tonight) but it's well over a hundred.

I'm aware the pedants will point out they weren't all for games - but here's when I visited Hednesford, and it was for a game as well!

They only count if you've paid to see a game there (them's the rules!) otherwise I'm counting about another 80 empty ones I've seen!! (I'll get my anorak!)

I know but I do get out of my car and walk around them! And said that I knew it didn't properly count! (Sorry).

A picture has appeared on twitter taken at our old ground around 30 years ago. I'm trying to think who the opponents are - not many teams play in green and white stripes (at least that's what my failing eyesight has picked up), white shorts and green socks. I'm thinking it might be Bromsgrove, but I'm not sure we crossed swords with them in league competition too often during this period.

Hmmm - Bedworth maybe? I think we played them in a cup or two if not in the league back then?

It amazed me on my grand tour of Scotland how many (empty) grounds I was able to just walk into, Montrose and Forfar being prime examples. Had a good chat with the sheep at Forfar too, but that's another story....

Sorry for contributing to thread drift. Top marks Glyn, it was indeed Bedworth. I know because I took the photo! I don't know the exact date but I reckon it's '81 or '82.

To my Forfar and Montrose I can add (off the top of my head) Morecambe'e new-ish ground (quite a surprise) and then Fort William, Forres Mechanics, Wick Academy, Burscough, Stranraer, Pickering Town, (the Bear's had his photo taken at all of those) and Raith Rovers. The ease of access to the Scottish grounds must be because they're all such law-abiding citizens up there...

:shock: ;) :mrgreen:

I remember that we drew Bedworth in both the FA Cup and the FA Trophy in the same season I think. We lost the FA Cup tie in a midweek replay (I went to the replay and as I was still at school I travelled on the team coach with other supporters), but lost the trophy game at home at the first time of asking.

We then went back to Bedworth for another FA Trophy tie a couple of seasons later and beat them 2-0 which was no mean feat as they were a league higher up the pyramid than we were.

Ground news for Merthyr (been) and Cambridge City (been to Milton Road but not to Histon or St Ives)

http://www.nonleaguedaily.com/

For the first time in many seasons, I haven't visited a new ground this time (and I'm not going to Lowestoft) - I think we need either to be promoted or moved South again

:twisted:
