Ground name quiz.

Post by Funkydrummer » Thu Jan 16, 2020 8:57 pm

Mansfield have an under18 player tonight by the name of Molineux (sp) and it got me wondering how many pro
footballers share a name with a football ground.

First names or surnames allowed.

I have a few in mind but I won't spoil it and I will leave it to the very knowledgeable UTC board members.

Away you go. :)

Was thinking more along the lines of Shay Given, for instance.

Surely there has to have been a player called Dean Court?
