Bolton Wanderers played their first match at the pictured Pikes Lane ground in 1880
but it was on September 8th 1888 that the ground won its place in football history.
On that day it was one of five grounds that hosted the first ever Football League
matches - Bolton lost 3-6 to Derby County in front of 5000 spectators.
The formation of the Football League. There was a grandstand along one side but the
most popular viewing point was from a hill next to one of the other touchlines on
which assembled up to 4000 fans. It wasn't the most popular of grounds
with poor facilities and a pitch which soon turned into a mud-bath but its end came
after the landlords upped the rent from £35 - a year! - in 1888 to £175 five years later.
Bolton played their last match at Pikes Lane in 1895 and then moved to Burnden Park.
The ground was sold for building - in those pre-Ikea and Tesco days just ordinary
houses were built on the site!

Bristol Rovers former Eastville Stadium home was probably best remembered by most for the
flower beds behind the goals and the aroma from the local gas works. A more tragic memory
would be of the fire that destroyed the South Stand in August 1980 following the first Division 3 match of the season, against Orient. Rovers were then forced to play their next five League and
Cup matches on 'enemy' territory - Ashton Gate. Their final match at Eastville was in April 1986
with Rovers then moving to share Bath City City's Twerton Park ground before arriving at the
Memorial Ground. Eastville is now the site of an IKEA store.

The old Wembley in 2003 in its last days. It still think that within the £800 million or so it
cost to build the new stadium a few bob could have been found to incorporate those towers
into the new building or move them somewhere else. To me it was vandalism at its worst when
they were demolished. As I turned round and walked away after taking the photo there was a
clap of thunder - in January! That just about summed up what I thought. Anyway the old
ground was with us from 1923 to 2000 which the new ground staging its first matches in 2007.

Please Note:
This site isn't complete. Given the rich history of football in this country alone it probably never will be!
My intention is to base this site on the Football League clubs and provide information t
hat is comprehensive, interesting and accurate. Already the site consists of over 3200  pages
and new pages are being added on a very regular basis so if the info you are after is not listed now it hopefully will be soon.
