Does anyone have information on the history of Millhead FC and Iodine Park?

Club – All I’ve managed to gleam from BNA is that Millhead were in the North Lancashire League in 1924/25 and withdrew at the start of 1925/26. Whether this club is related to the current club is unclear.

Ground – Reading various articles (including one in Groundtastic) Iodine Park was laid out in the 1950s in an old quarry. The “Iodine Park” name was acquired due to the large number of cuts and bruises suffered from players from bits of flint and stone in the 1950s and 1960s.

Cross-referencing with old maps, the area is marked as ‘playing fields’ by 1970.

Beyond that, information appears scant. Any help appreciated on this one.
