I knew a ground would tempt mip!

It is a British one but no longer in use.

I can't be 100% sure but the evidence I've seen would suggest yes.

Stab at Dingle Park, one of the homes of the original South Liverpool club and a ground that apparently once held 18,000 for a game against Tranmere Rovers. I can't find any online photographs, though.

BACK OF THE NET!

A ground that would surely have hosted league football had it not been for WW1 and a great riverside location too by all accounts...beating Everton on that score by a century! I've never seen any photos either btw.

The original South became New Brighton FC and, a few years later, became FL members in their own right after moving to Wirral. Meanwhile the current South's legacy began in 1935 and might well also have materialised in FL membership but for WW2.

Decent article about the history at https://footballpink.net/...-of-a-football-club/

Played Michael and over to you for #977.
