Newton Abbot grounds (SWL)


Recommended Posts

I know Newton Abbot Spurs have always played at Marsh Road Recreation Ground.

In the late 1970s/1980s, Newton Abbot Dynamos (later to change name to Newton Abbot) were members of the SWL. I don't think they played at Coach Road at all but I have no information on where they played. Their ground was described as Centrax Sports Field which I think they played at for the majority of their time but I'm led to believe they used another ground for their final season.

This, or their previous ground I was told was high up and only accessed through a field.

I know there are enough 'legends' who probably played there and I'm hoping you'll be able to help me.

Yes it was pretty high up, from memory we went up the hill from the Pen Inn Roundabout. I don't remember going through any fields to get to the ground though, everything was accessible from the changing rooms I think. Centrax definitely rings a bell too. We (Falmouth) played there at the end of one season and needed a win to win the SWL but only drew, we got our win the following week.
