Shrewsbury Shropshire

In River Severn, Shrewsbury on July 24, 2007 at 7:02 pm

A visit to Shrewsbury in the rain. I think this is the old Gay Meadow football ground which I visited twice. Last season saw the final game at this venue before Shrewsbury move to their new ground. Always something sad about this when a club moves after a hundred years of history playing at this site.

A local told me that a club official had a coracle boat to fetch balls that landed in the River Severn. Not sure if he was having me on but with the price of footballs they obviously couldn’t afford to let them float away. After the recent flooding in the area the river level looked high.
