It’s a welcome to the92.net blog to budding journalist and Yeovil Town fan Alex Burnell. Alex shares his thoughts on a trip to Moss Rose, the home of Macclesfield Town, as the Glovers’ were in town. It’s been a while since Macclesfield Town and Yeovil Town have played each other, an eventful 13 years for both concerned. But Saturday 24th November saw the two face off in what could hardly be described as a classic. Now we had it fairly easy, being a lifelong Yeovil fan who is currently studying at a university in the East Midlands; it was one… Read more »

Lifelong Newcastle fan and the92.net blogger Colin Harrison reports back on making the mammoth journey from the North East to the South West to complete his 92. The day had arrived for me to complete my tour of the 92 grounds. From my first ever match as a schoolboy, watching my beloved Newcastle United at St James Park to the other St James Park, Exeter. It wasn’t my 92nd league ground though but my 109th. One night in our local, we were discussing the journey to which my mate David said he would drive us all to Exeter in his… Read more »

Plan B Stadium MK

MK Dons v Bradford City in League 1 at Stadium MK

An international break can only mean 1 thing for Newcastle United fan Colin Harrison; a chance to chalk another ground off the list doing the 92… An email from Virgin Trains with the offer of cheap first class travel ignited an idea to tick off a ground in the capital and allow me to enjoy the journey instead of a four hour drive each way. I persuaded my trusty side-kick Paul to come along too. We decided on the international break weekend of October 7th and duly booked up the train in order to visit Charlton Athletic and tick off… Read more »

With time ticking on Griffin Park’s place in the 92 blogger and the92.net co-founder Pete made a long awaiting trip to the capital… Ground: The New Lawn (77/92) Game: Brentford 2-2 Bristol City Date: 20/08/2017 Reaching the later stages of doing the 92 and looking at the grounds I had left there were a number of grounds to make a call over…is it worth ticking them off if they’re going to be replaced within a year or 2? With Griffin Park it was a no brainer. All being well Brentford will be playing at their new home at Lionel Road… Read more »

A Green Day at the New Lawn

Main Stand at the New Lawn home of Vegan outfit Forest Green Rovers

Newcastle fan Colin Harrison took another step towards the 92 club with a trip to the New Lawn, home of the first Vegan Football Club in the Football League. On Monday evening I recieved a text message which contained three words. Those words were ‘Forest Green Saturday’. The text was from my referee mate David Webb, who is helping me achieve my goal of reaching ‘The 92 Club’. As I had agreed to work on the Saturday in question, I had two people who I needed to persuade. The first was a colleague to cover my shift. The second, but… Read more »

History is made at the New Lawn

Blogger and the92.net co-founder Pete was in good company heading down to Gloucestershire. The New Lawn was the venue as Forest Green Rovers playing their first game in the Football League. Ground: The New Lawn (76/92) Game: Forest Green Rovers 2-2 Barnet Date: 05/08/2017 In what is fast becoming a family a ritual my Dad and I looked for a new ground we could tick off on the opening day of the season. With him based on the South coast and myself in the East Midlands we examined the fixture list for a convenient meeting point; this year’s destination would… Read more »

The New Lawn has lost it’s 92 cherry

The New Lawn is a new edition to doing the 92. The little club on the hill enters the league, despite several close calls in previous seasons. Maybe most famously known as the eco-friendly club, and first vegan football club in the UK. We are excited to welcome a new experience to the 92. We caught up with supporter, volunteer, reporter, match day program contributor and author, Chirs Gardner. Groundsman: Welcome, after 128 years, to the Football League! Despite going close several times recently in the National League play-offs, what was it like to finally clinch promotion? Chris: Incredible and… Read more »

Away terrace at the Pirelli Stadium

Blogger Josh Green brings to a close his packed pre-season schedule at the Pirelli Stadium. The Posh supporter gives fans a taste of what to expect when visiting the home of the Brewers this season… With the Football League season almost upon us, Burton Albion took on local rivals Leicester City at the Pirelli Stadium. I had not visited the home of the Brewers since March, and with plenty of new recruits arriving in Staffordshire I had plenty to look forward to on my return. The 6912 capacity stadium saw almost 5000 spectators come through the turnstiles in the final… Read more »
