Another in the dog track series. Well, the last actually since there's no more on my local maps
I guess the recently announced Beardmore Park will wipe out any evidence of this that might be left.
I've only dug up a couple of references to the original stadium, 1947 and 1928, when an impressive 40,000 attended a boxing match featuring Tommy Milligan http://www.kazan3.freeserve.co.uk/tommymilligan.htm
There's nothing left in the area to the south of Myreside Street, where local maps show the stadium was directly at the side of the road. A flat grassy area with a pristine and apparently unused red shale playing field lies there now, next to a lower area with flat foundations.
The most interesting part may be in Duke Street. Through the rail bridge leading away from the Forge, there is an interesting single entrance that may have served Carntyne Stadium in its heyday. Little else survives to suggest its purpose, and a later sign over the arch section has been lost to reveal the word CARNTYNE painted over the entrance.
There are few more pics at http://www.geewiki.de-soft.co.uk/pmwiki ... yneStadium
but the area isn't particularly conducive to loitering in with a camera.
Once again, revealing of changes in social habits that a venue that could attract 40,000 could be wiped away practically without trace.
As ever, anyone have any info or memories?
