A To Z Of Football Grounds ( Past And Present )


Recommended Posts

Cressing Road - Braindead Town. The biggest local rivals to Chelmsford City and therefore a ground I've been to several times and never seen us lose. There is very much a "hate hate" relationship between the two clubs which I can recall, about 15 years back, lead to an Essex Senior Cup tie between the two being abandoned when all the players and both benches had a pitched battle which had to be broken up by the police. Far and away the best I have seen at a match!

Elm Park - Reading 1896 to 1988. Only ever went there twice; the Cup Third Round tie back in 1966 (went to all the cup games that year with my dad and uncle) and the Third Division game in 1976. Can remember nothing of the cup tie but vividly remember Jeff Johnson wheeling away in celebration after smashing home the winner ten years later. Our first away win for nearly two years!
