“mowing Roker & sunning oneself”

Sunderland “Mowing Roker & sunning oneself” year 1990 ©stuartroyclarke cat.0109

The groundsman prepares the pitch for the new season…though the end of football at Roker Park is just around the corner – the manicured pitch will be ripped up.
It shall be sold off, built upon with houses in streets named Promotion Close, Goalmouth Close, Clockstand Close, , Midfield Drive, Turnstile Mews…as well as Roker Park Close.
In its 1930′s heyday, 75,000 crowds were quite regular.

“swear it’s football”

Northampton Town “Swear it’s football” year 1990 ©stuartroyclarke cat.0148

The stage is set for the 4th division encounter between Town and Blackpool – who have both known what it’s like to be in the top Division.
The County Ground doubles up for football and cricket…possibly explaining the policy of politeness. In any case the crowd will be a small one.

Pre-season and the ground has been tarted up and the scoreboard put back to zero.
