HER Description

NEHL - A football ground could be found on the edge of Cornsay Colliery village in the 1940s. Contemporary newspaper articles suggest it may have been used by Cornsay Firtree Rovers and Cornsay Colliery, though it is difficult to confirm. The name 'firtree' may give an indication as the ground was next to a wooded area.

In the 1940s there was little facilities except a small footpath from the village lane. There was also a Firtree Hotel further south, further supporting this notion. Perhaps unlikely, but they may have played on the cricket ground off Green Lane.
