To mark the magazine’s 100th edition, a brand new Groundtastic book has been published.  Called The Cemetery End, the book is a pictorial collection of grounds and stands that have disappeared from the British footballing landscape in the last quarter of a century.  Running to 228 all-colour pages, and in A4 landscape format, the book is now ready for delivery to buyers. 

Organised in a year-by-year format, more than 350 grounds and stands are featured, ranging from Wembley Stadium to Axminster Town’s Sector Lane ground.  Each ground and stand is accompanied by a short description highlighting the history of the structure, and how and when it met its end.

Eighteen months in the making, The Cemetery End is the only place where the lost grounds stands of the last 25 years can be viewed in one place; it promises to be a seminal work. 


The book costs £20, plus P&P (see below).  

The cost of postage depends on the buyer’s location.  If you are a USA based buyer you should know that in July 2020 the cost of postage to the US rose dramatically, and unfortunately we have had to amend our postal rates accordingly.
