Derelict Boothferry Park - Hull City FC

Our last post was of a tiger playing with a football. Well to follow on from that this is where the Tigers, as Hull City are nicknamed, used to play. It’s their former ground Boothferry Park and they played here from 1946 until 2002. Over 55000 folk once crammed into here for a game against Manchester United. These images show it in a right old state prior to it’s demolition in 2008.
