Been to those except Parkside, Leeds Greyhounds but also , McClaren Field (Barley Mow I suppose), Gilford Park Carlisle, Fartown, Runcorn, Alt Park Huyton, Altrincham, Borough Park Blackpool, Nottingham Municipal, Prescot, Gigg Lane,`Alfreton -never got to Belle Vue, Knotty Ash though & maybe more (Scarboro being one)

I missed Gigg Lane sad.gif How could I forget Newloves' 100th try for Fev smile.gif and a sodding parking ticket when the steward assured me I'd be ok parked where I was mad.gif

Defunct RL grounds? (in so much as they no longer host RL) or Defunct Grounds (as in they now have houses/a B&Q on them)? Because At least Wilderspool is still there (or it was a month or so ago!)

Since they ceased to host games I've been to:
Lidcombe Oval
Pratten park
Birchgrove Oval
Wentworth Park

In the UK - all of the above (except the Barley Mow, which I assume isn't a mistaken Maclaren Field) - plus:
Doncaster Greyhound Stadium
Chiswick Poly Sports Centre
Barnet Copthall Stadium
Alt Park
St Helens Town FC
Prescott cables FC
Canal Street
Moor Lane (Salford City FC)
Belle View, (Doncaster Rovers FC)
Ashton Town FC
Brunton Park
Penrith FC
And don't forget the Athletic Grounds

I've been there. Well I've been to Morrisons wink.gif

Does Naughton Park count as defunct then? I've been there but not to the new stadium, but I thought one was just a revamp of the other.

"Why is Napoleon crying ?" said one sailor to the other, "poor ###### thinks he's being exiled to st helens" came the reply.
