Blogger Tim Dove makes the long journey to Cumbria to tick off Brunton Park, the home of Carlisle United and in doing so join the much coveted 92 club. Ground: Brunton Park 92/92! Game: Carlisle United 0-1 Newport County Date: 26/09/2015 Thoughts on the ground: So, this was it. Ground 92. Left deliberately so as to attend a traditional ground with football history as the last ground. A ground with terracing and located within walking distance of the town centre. Having completed my attendance at the 91st ground in the opening weeks of the 2015-6 season then it meant I… Read more »

91 down one to go at the Broadfield Stadium!

They say doing the 92 is a marathon not a sprint, but blogger Tim Dove is now in the sprint – if this were the Marathon at the London Olympics he’d be entering the last 400 metres on the Olympic Stadium track… Ground: Broadfield Stadium 91/92 Game: Crawley Town 0-1 Yeovil Town Date: 19/09/2015 Thoughts on the ground: Crawley Town was one of the grounds remaining on my ‘to visit’ list for two reasons: my own side had yet to play here and the fact it was so far away from home. So it became my penultimate ground of… Read more »

Is there a buzz around the Hive Stadium?

Barnet's ground

It was 1 down 2 to go for blogger Tim Dove this weekend. As he closes in on the magical 92 mark Tim made the journey to the Hive Stadium, the new home of Barnet FC. Ground: The Hive 90/92 Game: Barnet 0-0 Cambridge United Date: 29/08/2015 Thoughts on the ground: I’d previously been to Barnet when they played at Underhill in 1999 but following their promotion as Champions from the now National League, this was an early opportunity to visit “The Hive”. Barnet FC moved to this purpose built stadium and training complex in 2013. The stadium itself can… Read more »

Blogger and Yeovil Town fan Peter returned to the Kassam Stadium as the Glovers looked to build on an impressive comeback against Luton. Ground: The Kassam Stadium 49/92 (2nd visit) Game: Oxford United 2-0 Yeovil Town Date: 29/08/2015 Being a Yeovil fan hasn’t been the most pleasant experience for the past couple of seasons. After successive relegations and pretty much an entire new squad, which haven’t really looked like starting to gel talk of the dreaded successive triple drop has started to rear its ever so ugly head. However after last weeks comeback from 2-0 down at Huish Park against… Read more »

Gillingham make the trip to the Vale Park

Port Vale's ground

Gills fan Michael Pilcher continues to set the pace doing the 92, ticking off his second ground in successive weeks. The Kent outfit were off to the Potteries to face Port Vale hoping to avenge a 2-1 defeat from their last visit. Ground: Vale Park 72/92 Game: Port Vale 1 – 1 Gillingham Date: 15/08/2015 Vale Park is one of those lower league grounds that has been sitting on my list for years, and considering Vale have followed my team (Gillingham) through the bottom two tiers for the past six seasons or so, it’s surprising it’s taken me this long….

On the road with the Pools at Bootham Crescent

York City v Hartlepool United in league 2

Pools fan Ross Hamilton-Milburn ticks off his first ground of the new season as Hartlepool travelled to York. Ground: Bootham Crescent 15/92 Game: York 1-2 Hartlepool United Date: 15/08/2015 Thoughts on the ground: Bootham Crescent is one of those proper old fashioned football grounds you normally only ever see on one of the million ‘football from the past’ twitter accounts that seem to exist for some reason. For a start, on the approach to the ground you walk past things called ‘houses’ as opposed to through an industrial estate like most modern stadiums are. The turnstiles look like they’ve come… Read more »
