Right, I'll fill a few of these in for you in no particular order, and anyone who watches Steels that regular has my sympathy!
Wombwell Town, played at Station Road, never been called Dorothy Hyman Stadium, that has always been in Cudworth, where she came from.
Crookes, as far as I know and I never saw them there, they shared Sheffield Waterworks old ground at Crookes before getting a decent side and moving up the pyramid. This is now owned by SUFC and is some five a side pitces and a posh gym.
Frecheville, still there and not changed one bit since dropping out of NC East.
Fryston, again still there and next to Cutsyke RL, who always got far bigger crowds.
Dronfield United, used to be called Norton Woodseats, the original occupants of the Coach & Horses ground where Sheffield now play. They changed name back again when they reformed but didn't last long.
Ash House, before sharing Transport Ground at Meadowhead played at Ash House, a now derilict playing surface with vandalised clubhouse at Dore, just before Sheffield Tigers RU, on opposite side of road.
Denaby & Cadeby, ended up at Denaby United. Not sure if it wasn't their committee that threw United off ground?
Pilkington Recreation, played on a ground in Doncaster, exactly where I forget, long time since I went!
York R.I., still at same ground (New Lane I think) in York & District League, went there last summer for York Locomotive RL.
Oakham United, isn't this the same ground now used by Sutton in Central Midlands?
Parramores, the original ground is lost in mists of time but I think and I emphasis that, it was somewhere up near Millhouses Park way. They went to Civil Service ground at Ecclesfield, same as Red Rose, then to Meadowhead, or was it other way round? Whatever! They've also played at Davy ground at bottom of Prince of Wales Road.
High Green Villa, Mortomley Lane in High Green, always been?
Rossington Haslam, a ground next door to Rossington Main. Also known as Station FC.
Sheffield Centralians, Sheffield United Cricket Ground on Bawtry Road, just before Crookes Aurora ground on same side.
Hope this info. is of use, someone I'm sure will correct me if I'm wrong with anything.
We'll be, as we are, when all the fools who doubt us fade away.
