I have taken on the Groundhopper App this season, and although I am not sure about how useful it is, I have been wasting time trying to get all my old matches into the database.
The problem is with grounds that are not on the Apps database. It is something of a rigmarole to enter grounds into the system as it requires using the map, and some are too close to an existing ground to be allowed. A quirk is that although they have old Wembley and new Wembley as separate entries, it would not have been possible to enter old Wembley into the system if missing!
Of course, some defeat me to some extent - I just cannot remember the location, nor spot it on the map.
- As I saw Clacton's old ground is now a retail park, I have located it at the Lidl on Old Road. Does anyone know if this is correct
- The old ground of Patro Eisden? I think it may be what is now the Jeugd ground on Louis Mercierlaan. I have tried to put this into the App once, but they rejected this (and some other Belgium grounds) as I assumed that by using a map to pinpoint a ground, I had given a good enough address
- Pegasus (Hampshire). I have no memory at all of where this was, although it must have been close to Basingstoke. The Lansing Bagnall Works was quite central, and it was their sports ground.
There will be more, I have added only a quarter of my grounds (although almost half my matches)
Fat AND Pompous.
The proof that you can have too much of a good thing
