Following the merger of Ilford & Leytonstone, the club were to be named Ilford & Leytonstone but the FA objected due to the club playing at Leytonstone. Ilford were to get a new ground at Fairlop (the Berger Isthmian News had a photo of the first turf being cut at the new ground).
I wonder if anyone on here can shed further light and have any articles on the plans for Ilford's new ground? Was this going to be a new ground solely for Ilford FC (to replace Lynn Road) or for the 'new' Leytonstone/Ilford?
And were there any plans at all for a new Leytonestone ground to replace Granleigh Road?
Likewise, any definitive plans for a new Walthamstow Avenue ground to replace Green Pond Road?
