East End Park, Dunfermline

Dumbarton are due to play at East End Park, home of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club, on the 23rd, a week today. We last played there on Jan 5th when I took these photos.

The Pars, as they are known, are in financial trouble; so take a good look at these as they may become historical curios.

Yes, there’s a cemetery over the wall from the ground. This is a stitch of two photos to get the whole ground in.

East Stand. Not used, except for big matches. (Celtic and Rangers, then, or when the Pars play a decider against Raith Rovers. So not often.)

    A testament of course to the complete madness that was/is the SPL. A vanity project gone horribly wrong. 10,000 seater stadia in Airdrie, Maryhill, Kirkcaldy, Livingston, Dunfermline etc which haven’t hosted a capacity crowd amongst them and which are regularly less than a third and typically less than a fifth, full.

    I’m sorry for Dunfermline and their fans but they are just a less extreme version of Gretna. Paying too much to chase the impossible dream.

    Indeed, Rab.
    There are too many “bigger” clubs in a similar if not quite so perilous, position
