I suspect this is a Chance dish. What I want to know is which football stadium is it please? The pitch only takes up the left hand of the site.

I'd have presumed it was West Bromwich Albion if it was Chances but the main road runs along the goal end,on google maps,and on your pic' along the 'longer' side so prob' not,as you can tell football is not my thing,rather watch paint dry!

I don't think it's West Brom, Birmingham City or Albion. Wherever it is it was a big site because the football pitch only occupies the left hand half.

I'm thinking Northampton Town. The football club shared with the Cricket club until the 80's I think.

Very strange that there's no legend!

You could also try posting on football forums:

Hi,

Could the football ground be the old baseball ground, Derby County?

Could be:

... although the curved road on one side is not really apparent on the glass tray.

The rounded corners at the one end of the ground should be a big clue.

It's a Cricket ground - you can see the pavilion.
