Old Subbuteo Town

Other Pitches

Old SubbuteoTown

Which came first, the houses or the pitch?

The pitch obviously! The town grew up around it, with folks coming from far and wide to 'bagsy' their plot of land, so they can watch all the games from the comfort of their living room sofas.

Inspired by the phenomenon of the local community football team with a local following, and then the whole town turns up to support them in a big cup match, like Marine AFC v Spurs in the 3rd Round of the Cup. Check out the ground they've played at since 1903. It used to be called Rossett Park - one side runs alongside the back gardens of houses on Rossett Road.

Maybe someone will build a town one day to replicate Old Subbuteo Town! ?
