    webt here today, thought it was going to be harder to get in than it was but it was so simple!
    I originally went through a field and noticed a part of the fence almost squashed together and almost crawling, went through coming out on to the pitch!
    It's been unused for about 5 years and was set alight about 3 years ago, wasn't the most exciting place to get into but for the first place I found on my doorstop it would be silly not to take advantage!

    Not the most exciting as you say, but a good start. Maybe add a bit of history of the club?

    Look forward to seeing more from you.

    Thank you I've had my eye on a old farm house for a few years now, it's just a small house but at the moment construction vehicles are there with a lot of security but I will not be deterred!!

    As promised some history on the club ;)
    Rothwell FC was formed as Rothwell town swifts in 1895 the nickname the Bones derived from the bone crypt in the towns holy trinity church, one of only three in the country.
    Although financial difficulties led to the club switching between junior and senior football on several occasions .
    In 1933 the club dropped down to kettering league which they won in 1937, in 1948 they returned to senior football.
    They finally claimed the league title in 1992-93 a feat which repeated the following year. For their second title win the club stepped up to the southern league.in 1997 rothwell FC finished second in the midland division and promoted to the premier division where they spent three seasons. In 2008 they got a new manager 2009-10 rothwell struggled both on and off the pitch, the team dropped to the bottom four in the league and the financial crisis kicked in with the clubs main stream of revenue - the social club becoming unavailable for public use.
    The club folded 2011-12. 24th July 2013 the club was set alight fire fighters reached it at 8pm but the fire was not put out till after 10pm.
    Apparently flames reached about 50ft and smoke was seen about 7-10 miles away!!
