Do you think the replacement of the Old Grandstand has boosted SJ Park, or has it lost some of it's ramshackle charm?Griffin Park is not actually number 1. It is only number 1 of the ‘Ghost grounds’ at the end of the book (picked from those stadiums that have closed since 2014).
The wonderfully named Dripping Pan, home of Lewes, is number 1 proper. It’s a quite stunning ground and many stadium aficionados would have it high on their list.
Our SJP is indeed in at number 34 but there are only 12 other PL/EFL clubs above us in Bayly’s list. Fulham is the top PL/EFL ground at number 2. The other SJP is number 4.
It’s a brilliant book. And spoiler alert…..neither Yeovil or Colchester are anywhere to be seen.
