Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
Sun Apr 18, 2010 6:14 pm by meanwood_monks
Been thinking about this for a while now.

Some of you guys/gals have been here since day 1. Cheers for all your support over this time.
Was wondering if anyone was wanting to keep an eye on things and have MOD rights here.

PostSubject: Boothferry Park, Hull 12 Pics   Sun Nov 16, 2008 3:33 pm

This afternoon, Hull City FC are playing Manchester City two miles away at the KC Stadium. The game will eventually end in a 2-2 draw. Incredibly, as we arrive in the staduim, you can hear the roar of the crowd up the road as they kick off. Throughout the whole of the visit, the ebb and flow of crowd noise is there, which adds to the experience. Today sees intrepid explorers Trouser Cowboy and myself visiting the remains of their former ground.
The club are now known as the Tigers. For a while they were known as the Bothferry's, due to the missing 'O'. They were also known as FER ARK, again due to the lack of bulbs lighting up the lettering.



I love this shot. Anyone who has ever been to a football match will recognise the feeling as you go up and over and see the pitch before you.


The stands on three sides of the ground are gone. All that remains is terracing and rubble.


This walkway should be kept clear at all times


The last remaining stand. Alas, no access was on. It looked trashed.


View of the pitch from behind the goal, then.


View of the pitch from behind the goal, now.


There was much concern at the club it would be ready for it's first game against Lincoln City here at Boothferry Park in 1946. The club had had to play the previous season at a ground on the nearby Boulevard as the ground was not ready. It was prone to waterlogging, and the repairing of tanks here during the second world war by the Home Guard hadn't helped. This is the spot of the pitch I believed to be within the centre circle.


55,019 supporters were here in 1949 to see Manchester United play. To this day, this remains the club's record attendance.



Hull City FC, until last August held the dubious claim of being the largest city in Europe without a football team in the top division. For over 50 years, they called Boothferry Park their home. Although the last game was played here in December 2002, the reserves played on for a further year. Demolition started in January 2008. The burnt out turnstiles.


These ticket stubs were everywhere on the north stand terracing.


How cool is this? The concrete which would have supported the goal posts. Both of them were there at the North Stand end.

I t was really good. It was just starting to get dark, and you could hear the crowd from the KC stadium just up the road as Hull City were playing Man City. I loved it!
