Cannock FC's Central Athletic Ground

I have now pinpointed this location having previously only known to within 500 yards. Even on an O.S. map of 1917 when it was in regular use, it still wasnt named on the map ! I found a 1913 photo of when a famous early earoplane pilot landed his bi-plane on the football ground which I have now put up on the website picture gallery. The oval known as Hardy Green (Blackfords) was built on the pitch. Cannock Town played on this ground before moving to their own Brookfields Ground in 1902/03. I have also posted a new Cannock FC photo wearing a 'Newcastle Utd' kit, thanks to Hednesford historian Dave Shaw.
