Raikes Hall, Blackpool, not being available for the ensuing football season, the Blackpool Football Club have taken time by the forelock, and for some time arrangements have been proceeding for removing to the Old South Shore ground on Bloomfield-road, where, with a small expenditure, the ground can be put into a playable condition, though for next season but one an entire transformation will be carried out, new stands, &c, being built.
This ground and the athletic grounds were the only two available sites, and as no stand or other accommodation exists at the latter place there was no other course open but to go to South Shore, where there is a small stand. A season there should prove whether it is worth while expending any big sum upon the ground.
The team is about complete, Fylde lads being in the majority amongst the players.
