Albion host stage in ground-hopping marathon

24 July 2016

Grange Albion FC are expecting a bumper Bank Holiday crowd – thanks to a marathon weekend of football watching by football ground obsessives.

The South Wales Alliance Premier side’s Coronation Park ground in Sloper Road will be welcoming coachloads of fans taking part in Welsh Groundhop 2016.

If they look a little weary when they arrive for the 12.45pm kick off on Monday 29th August, forgive them. It will be their 10th match of the weekend, with a trip to Barry still to go before the end!

Albion are expecting an attendance of around 300 for the match with Cardiff Corries and will be producing a special souvenir programme. Admission on the gate is £3 and there is also a fund-raising raffle.

The tour by Groundhop UK brings together football ground aficionados from across the country.
