Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, 1980
A long way from its native Bristol and way passed its prime, former Bristol Omnibus Company, ECW/Bristol FLF, JAE630D, passes the old Scunthorpe United FC's football ground in Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe in 1980.
JAE630D, only had a very short career with Bristol Omnibus, passing to the
West Riding Automobile Company Ltd in November 1969. In 1978, and under National Bus Company ownership, the bus was transferred the Lincolnshire Road Car in the April of that year. Numbered 2715 in the LRCC fleet, the bus was finally withdrawn from passenger service in 1981/2. After passing to a dealer, JAE630D was exported to Halifax Double Decker Tours, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1983. In 1996, the bus was again sold on, but this time it was converted into a mobile fish and chip shop. By the end of 1997, it had fallen out of use, and was last reported in 2000, as being in a derelict condition in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The ‘Old Showground’ Football Stadium
Scunthorpe United, formerly known as Scunthorpe and Lindsey United, among other names, has existed since 1899, but did not join the Football League until 1950 when the league structure was expanded. Their first game was against fellow new entrants Shrewsbury Town.
When it became apparent that the Old Showground needed significant investment to maintain its fabric and to make it comply with new regulations introduced in the wake of the Bradford Fire Disaster, the ground was sold. Funded by the sale of the old football ground, Scunthorpe United FC moved to a purpose built stadium at Glanford Park, Scunthorpe in 1988, the first English football club to move to a purpose built stadium in nearly 30-years. Following the move, the site of the former Old Showground stadium was re-developed into a supermarket, which is now owned by J. Sainsbury’s.
Some facts about the Old Showground Stadium:
It was the first football ground in England to have a cantilever grandstand, which was constructed in 1958, four years before Sheffield Wednesday's at Hillsborough.
The Ground Capacity was 25,000.
The record crowd was 23,935 when Scunthorpe played Portsmouth in the FA Cup Fourth Round on 30th January 1954.
The last match played at the ground was against Torquay United on Wednesday 18th May 1988.
