    The stand on the far side was one of the oldest in the FL until it was condemned following stricter safety regulations in 1985..

    Some of those European ones are proper works of art.

    Another view of Woking. The side to the left doesn't seem to have changed. The pram is a lovely bit of detail! This from

    I happened upon a book the other day called Rejected FC: Histories of ex-Football League Clubs vol. 1 which has got several pics of since demolished grounds.

    If i can make my printer work without losing patience and smashing it to pieces, i'll try to scan some of them (the non-copyrighted ones, natch).

    I've always thought this picture to be poignant.



    I doubt that many Exewebber's have been there, but quite a few will have visited the club that eventually rose from the ashes

    Re: Lost football grounds

    There is a really excellent book called "lost league football grounds" by Michael and Drew Heatley that has some great old pics from all over the place and a memories section for each team where supporters from bygone days bring life to the pictures by regaling the reader with atmospheres at the old grounds.......highly recommended, I love it
