In the Lost Teams book, I said that their Belgrave Cycle ground still existed as the Belgrave Road Recreation park, but I have just discovered,thanks to Dave Twydell (The greatest of all football historians) that the gound was acutally across the road from todays park, and faced the junction with Brandon Street. The old ground is now built over by Buller Road and Roberts Road. It was, as you'd expect, oval shaped,facing away from the main road,with the football piytch inside the cycle oval,and had a grandstand on the left side,and there was a refreshment hut behind the Belgrave Road goal.
