TQ6200 : The Oval, Princes Park

taken 12 years ago, near to Sovereign Harbour, East Sussex, Great Britain

The Oval, Princes Park
The Oval, Princes Park
Home to Eastbourne United since 1946. The ground also used to be home to the local athletics team who decamped to better facilities in the 1990s. Consequently, the old cinder track has been removed and turfed over and gives the ground a dilapidated look. This isn't helped by the ground being open access to the public as can be witnessed by the presence of pitch side pooper-scooper bins. The grandstand to the left seems to have survived from a football period time has forgotten. In the meantime the council, who own the ground, have not shown any impetus to improve matters.
