  • Description

    The greenest grass (or so it seemed to Tigers fans), the tallest floodlights (six of them, not four like other clubs), its own railway station, a state of the art gym and a highly individual character - these were just some of the reasons why Boothferry Park was so revered by City fans.

     

    Constructed in times of hardship and rationing in the middle of the last century, it slowly evolved to become one of the best football grounds in the country in the 1960's, admired for its modernity and innovations. Attendances fluctuated wildly over the decades, along with the fortunes pf the team that played on its lush green turf. Despite the declines (which usually last longer than the, often short, successful eras) and the financial crisis that ensured, the stadium retained the aura of a prestigious venue, wearing its battle scars with pride. Its diminished status only served to increase the affection of most Hull City fans, for whom it was simply 'home'.

     

    The final game was played there in December 2002, bringing to an end 56 years of muddy toil, unfulfilled ambitions and, occasionally, moments of genius and triumph. This book recalls the old ground: the stands, the fans and their passions, the view from the terraces rather than the Press box or the TV gantry - in short, how it was experienced for the Tigers fans who watched their football there. Many of the players who graced the turf are also featured (as well as some who merely plied their trade to the best of their abilities), completing this visual record of Hull best-loved stadium.
