HER Description

NEHL - A football ground was situated between the Phoenix Telegraph & Electric Works from around the 1950s until later in the century. It appears to have slightly overlapped the life of the nearby ground at Portrack Grange Farm (https://www.northeastheritagelibrary.co.uk/sports-archive/stkn08/portrack-grange%2C-football-ground), and may have been its successor.

The ground featured a pavilion on its south edge, though there are sadly no aerial photographs to verify what this looked like. It was likely to have been related to one of the nearby industries given its location off the main road.

Though the boundaries of the ground are identifiable, the area appears to be overgrown. The ground likely fell out of use well before the turn of the century.
