Cally/Parkway ground names

Recommended Posts

How long has Callington's ground been known as Marshfield Park? (Previously known as The Marsh).

How long has Plymouth Parkway's ground been known as Bolitho Park? Named after author Janie Bolitho. Was there a name or was it just Manadon Arena?

I'm afraid I can't answer your questions but got me wondering, how long would it before local teams find sponsors for grounds like the professional clubs. Maybe we may end up someone like Bodmin playing at the Barnecutt stadium. Bodmin.

I think that Bolitho Park has been Bolitho Park from the very beginning. I believe that Janie Bolitho was one of if not their very first sponsors so they named the ground after her.

Hi guys, perhaps I can answer one part of this for you. Bolitho Park as you rightly say was named after the Cornish author Janie Bolitho. Janie is the late wife of the clubs current President, Jim Parsons. Plymouth Parkway were sponsored by Janie and the 1st team wore her name on their shirts, because at the time she quite a few books in circulation.

Plymouth Parkway have played at Bolitho Park ( formally part of the Naval Engineering College at Manadon) for around 14 years.
