Groundhopper Geoff

25 April 2013

Can you match Smith's exploits?

Groundhopper Geoff Smith added Shrewsbury Town's new Greenhous Meadow home to the list of grounds where he has watched Latics.

Geoff, a car park attendant at Boundary Park, has now watched Latics play on 153 different grounds.

It was back in 1959/60 that Geoff began watching Latics and his first away day was to Barnsley in 1964.

Since then he has watched Latics on grounds as obscure as Barrow, Workington and Southport who are no longer in the league and at non-league clubs like South Shields and Grantham.

Geoff, an engineer by trade, has added Crawley, Coventry City's Ricoh Arena and Shrewsbury this season to the list of grounds where he has watched Latics.

And as to the ground where he has watched Latics most - that is Notts County where he has paid 12 visits.
