An episode of Dr Finlay's Casebook in 1965 was based around Tannochbrae United FC.

It was filmed at Alloa's Recreation Park. Following an Alloa v Dumbarton game the 'crowd' were invited to remain behind for the filming of panoramic shots etc. Some footage of the actual match was apparently included in the programme as well.

I see a team suddenly appeared representing the Chatsworth Estate on Shameless the other week. I assume it was a local rec in the Manchester area ....

I think it was railed ?.

Talking of Shameless your namesake has had a torrid time of late.

If Frank Gallagher turned up at a Hop would he look out of place ?.

There was an episode of Casualty a few years ago where an old pro from 'Holby City FC' received a career ending injury. There was footage from a ground used.

This was before the spin- off series of the same name

Some hilarious goofs;

1) The recent TV drama about the young George Best shows an airport terminal (exterior) far too modern to have existed in the early 1960's.

2) "The Dammed United" - admittedly I haven't seen this one, but a widely used still in newspapers shows the Leeds and Liverpool teams walking out at a mocked-up 'old' Wembley for the 1974 Charity Shield. Nearly all the spectators in this photo have short hair. OK, so it's a bit hard to persuade extras to grow their hair prior to filming, but you would have thought the producers could have simply handed out wigs on set!

When the crowd invades the pitch in Escape to Victory many are wearing 1980's style cloths, not 2nd world war items.

As an aside, in many dramas set in the 1950's and 1960's if you look at the rooftops you will see UHF type TV ariels, these would not have be in use in many areas outside London until circa 1968.

Jossy's Giants (featuring Glipton Giants and rivals Glipton Grasshoppers)

My memory was that the team were originally called Grasshoppers but the team didn't like it. Jossy tried to make them aware of the European heritage of the name but failed - much sulking by Jossy followed. They then renamed themselves Jossy's Giants - jubilation all round! -

If anyone's up for a challenge, here's a ground identification query from a TV forum I frequent:
http://www.mausoleumclubforum.org.uk/...thread.php?tid=22579

Look up
'The Adventures of Portland Bill - Atmospheric Interference'
on Youtube to see the clip - there's a better picture of the ground for identification purposes just after the shot in the forum post. The football starts about 3mins 40 into the clip

Had a look, could it be a Scottish match from the early 1970's, Dumbarton / East Fife ?.

In Corrie Weatherfield Rovers(?) are a Conference team.


Ken Barlow's brother David played for Weatherfield County in the early 1960s. He was transferred to a London second division team for £1000.

He later returned to the Street and was player/manager of Weatherfield Athletic

Re: [Mishi] Fictional football on film: [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Apologies if this is in the wrong thread, but I watched a bit of a film earlier this week called “Things To Do Before You’re 30”, about a boys’ team called Athletico Greenwich who grow up together and decide to quit after they’ve played 500 games, culminating in a 'high-profile' game against Deptford Dynamos.

The film was definitely shot in and around the Greenwich area, and it included several pitches of differing descriptions, although there was virttually next to no footballing action at all in the film. The last pitch shown was a strange ornate affair with chairs laid out on the terracing. Anyone know the names / locations / home teams of any of the grounds?

I also recall an episode of Casualty in the late 80s/early 90s centred around a riot breaking out between rival fans before a Holby FA Cup tie.

It was as bad as it sounds!

The only filming locations named on IMDb are London and The Isle of Man.

If it is the episode I am thinking about when some old ex-pro is injured and is refused another contract because he is always pissed, I think it was filmed at Mangotsfield United.

Just watched an episode of 'Pie in the Sky' (I know, sad!) - the episode was called 'Return Match' and featured considerable footage from a non-league football ground. Anyone know where this was filmed? Can't find anything on the net only that some of the street scenes are from marlow and the main shop front is on old Hemel Hempstead High Street. Anyone know?

Re: [Mishi] Fictional football on film: [In reply to] Can't Post or

 I haven't noticed that anyone has mentioned 'Wetherton Wanderers' who featured in an episode of Dalziel and Pascoe. The team had just been promoted to the Premier League and the players, officials and wives etc. were on their way to a civic dinner to celebrate when the coach was hit by a train at a level crossing killing a couple of passengers including the team manager who was subsequently found to have been murdered in the confusion afterwards. It just goes to show that no good comes from promotion to the Premier League ! The ground used for filming was Highfield Road, presumably shortly after Coventry had moved out and not long before the ground was demolished.

Yes it was, with the big advert for the Maidenhead Advertiser behind the goal cunningly converted to Middleton Advertiser.

An episode of "Hustle" featured Ash Morgan's team, Railton something-or-other. It was filmed at Halesowen Town.

Surprised nobody has mentioned "Escape to Victory", though of course that didn't feature a specific club, more a one-off "Combined XI" of sorts!

Re: [claim] Fictional football on film: [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

In 1993 an episode of the sitcom Mulberry starring Karl Howman was filmed at Wimborne Town's Cuthbury ground. The previous night they played Poole Town in a Dorset Senior Cup semi-final and in the programme they were inviting fans to attend the filming as crowd extras. I believe the players on show were all members of Wimborne's first and reserve teams, the home team were wearing the Magpies' famous black and white strip which they wore at Wembley in the previous season's FA Vase final and the opposition playing in the clubs then away strip of green and white. I remember spotting Vase hero and now Poole Town manager Tommy Killick playing for the home team when the episode went out on TV a year later.

Surprised nobody has dragged this up to poke fun at last week's episode of Silent Witness. The laughably named "Thames City FC"... used The Valley for the matchday shots but hopped across to the Emirates for a boardroom scene despite the fact that the view out of the window looked nothing like the ground in the previous sequence.
