Other Info:
There used to be a running track with a cycle velodrome outside it here but both have been removed. The stadium was used as an army camp during the Second World War. A football team called Bootle FC who formed in 1948 played here but they soon moved onto the Seaforth Dog Track which was on the east side of Crosby Rd South, south of the current flyover and just north of Verdi Stin before folding in 1953. Liverpool Pembroke (now Liverpool Pembroke Sefton) used Bootle Stadium for a base for many years before moving to Kirkby Stadium in the early 1970s. There was a stand but this went in the 1960s and the last football known to be played here was in the 1970s. I am not sure when the running track was lost. The stadium is now basically a sports centre. The entrance used to be on Stuart Road but is now on Maguire Avenue.
