So yesterday I found a football ground surrounded by an abandoned seaside city


So yesterday I found a football ground surrounded by an abandoned seaside city. Today I found one surrounded by ancient Venetian battlements that doubled as stands, and overlooked by a millitary shipyard. Even more gutted there wasn’t a game on now!

    Hey Peter. This one is the ground of Magusa Turk Gucu in Famagusta. No idea how I got on the Ethinokos page – although I did post about them yesterday.

    The ground the day before was also in Famagusta, but at the very edge of the forbidden zone of Varosha – and was in fact bordered on two sides but the closed holiday town. Thanks for your note, sir.

    Yeah, we were at the Pafos FC v Ethnikos game the other night. You’re boys weren’t very good, as is shown by their league position at the mo. But they had an incredible spirit that really endeared me to them.

    Yeah I didn’t go but did see that the only thing actually worth seeing was the pyrotechnics/fireworks

    The Pafos mob were exellent fun for about the first ten minute. Then they kind of nodded off. We were accidentally sat with the away fans, and they had a long suffering good humour that I’ve come to appreciate as a Bath City fan!

    For my sins I am actually a Torquay United F.C. supporter, mind I don’t tell many people. Bottom of the Vanarama?National league is not something to proud of
