NS8980 : Firs Park

taken 8 years ago, near to Falkirk, Great Britain

Firs Park
Firs Park
Former home of East Stirlingshire Football Club, who at the time of submission were chasing neighbours Livingston hard at the top of Division Three. A big improvement after years at the bottom of the league. Once, the crowd's names were actually read over the public address system instead of the teams as in the old joke. East Stirlingshire now play at Ochilview, Stenhousemuir.
When I last watched a game here, there were rusting steam locomotives in a yard beyond one goal. Now supermarkets and tin sheds wait to invade the pitch.
