Match: N/A

Published: 3/6/2013


I think Solitude, home of Ireland's oldest club Cliftonville FC,is like most grounds in the Irish League in that it was considerably under-funded historically and lacked any real facilities for a considerably long time. It's still not perfect but there are now modern stands behind both goals and a small wheelchair section near the corner of the pitch. The best aspect about the club is the helpful nature of the supporters and officials who will do whatever they can to help disabled supporters and are always willing to listen. Additionally, I think the club is moving forward and things are only set to improve for all those who watch their football at the north Belfast venue.
