Who spent their Saturday afternoons here? May 31, 2020 by Grantham Matters Leave a Comment London Road football/cricket ground in 1985 Grantham FC dressingrooms & boardroom in 1985. London Road (later Sainsbury) Stand at London Road football ground 1985 THIS one is personal. I spent many a happy hour in this press box, frozen still from the draughts, watching Town at London Road football ground For the big match we would get a few visitors but usually it was a lonely place and a dark one as I phoned through my copy to evening papers after the lights were switched out. It was always secure yet sometimes articles of womens clothing would be found on the bench inside. How is still a mystery. This picture was taken in 1985. The main stand and terrace at the London Road football ground. The structure in the middle is the press box.
