January 2016, and a trip to watch some ice hockey at Sheffield Steelers. The afternoon’s football plans were disrupted by a hard frost, so I made an unplanned visit to Gainsborough Trinity. The club, now in National League North but once a member of the Football League, claims to have one of the oldest grounds in the country. Best of all, it enjoys a fairly central site in the town. The history, however, proved more interesting than the present – Trinity played out a tame 1-1 draw with AFC Telford.
