In the formative years of the South Western League, Plymouth Argyle 'A' after troubles of finding a suitable ground played all of their matches away from home. They used a pitch at Torpoint around 1955 and thereafter played at Home Park, usually on a Monday night or midweek.
As the 'home' games were played at the home of the opposition, the opponents are usually listed first, giving them an extra home game each season.
Would anyone have a fixture list from 1951-1956 to decipher the home games from away games?
In 1951/52 they used Millbay Park and tried to get Marsh Mills Park but the ground was deemed unsuitable and upon this the decision was made to play away.
I don't know which pitch they used in Torpoint. It could have been Mill Field as Torpoint were playing there before switching briefly to Defiance Field for most of the 1960s.
174 grounds (13/01/18).
New grounds in 2017/18: Altarnun, Blackpool, Charlestown, Chesterfield, Delabole United, Derby County, Hayle (3G), Looe Town, Mansfield Town, Newton Abbot Spurs, Par Running Track (pitch 2), Plymouth Marjon, Rame Peninsula, RNAS Culdrose (pitch 2), Rosudgeon (pitch 2), Stoke Climsland, Teignmouth
