The derelict former home of General Chemicals FC, whose pitch was adjacent to Runcorn Town FC, pictured before the Boxing Day derby match between Runcorn Town and visitors Runcorn Linnets at the Pavilions, Runcorn, in a top-of the table North West Counties League premier division match. Runcorn Linnets won 1-0 and overtook their neighbours at the top of the league in a game watched by 803 spectators. Runcorn Linnets were a successor club to Runcorn FC, one of England foremost non-League clubs of the 1970s and 1980s.
