    Have to admit I'd forgotten that Stalyvegas had fallen so far.

    I thought Vics shared with Witton Albion at Wincham Park - or is that another name for Central Park?

    1874 see themselves as the people’s community club all 3 still seem to attract the same 1000 - 1500 fans between them 1874 were looking to go into the FA centre of excellence when it was being built in Northwich whether they still will now it’s going to Winsford I don’t know whether the fans will stand that.

    I went to Trafford vs Burscough - 2-0 and a lovely set up.

    Central Park was demolished and is now Sainsbury's. I was in there yesterday as they are selling Standard vodka at £12, a pound cheaper than Morrisons. The only hint of the old ground is the name "Central Road", where it was. The local derby Vics v Witton (and vice versa) was usually held at Xmas time (both were in the old Cheshire League), and has seen crowds of 10,000 plus - that was in the late forties when spectators watched most clubs in huge numbers.

    I saw City play at Central Park v Witton in a testimonial in the late 80's or early 90's.
    Went to Vics quite a few times as a bloke I worked with was from the town and at the time lived in Sale where I did too. If City weren't playing i would go with him on the train to Northwich. Great pies at The Drill Field!
    One game I went to was Kettering away first game of the season in the days when 20 fans went on the team bus to subsidise travel costs. Gordon Hill was playing for Vics then.
