Trinidad Park - Home to Parkgrove Football Club 1877-1880
The location of the Trinidad Park ground has never accurately been pin-pointed. Very little was known other than it was on the Broomloan Estate and on the Copeland (or Copland) Road, Govan.
Documents in the National Records of Scotland indicate:
Plan of feus bounded by Copland and Edmiston Roads, Broomhouse Avenue, Whitefield Street and Ibrox. Turnpike, Broomloan House, and brickworks.
In the Summer of 1877, with financial assistance from Andrew Watson, the field was rented from Thomas Lucas Paterson who owned Broomloan. Paterson was reputed to have been extremely avaricious. When the Glasgow & South Western Railway enquired about routing their train lines through Broomload, Paterson's demands were so outrageous that the train company diverted the lines around Broomload instead.
Paterson's avarice may have been a contributory factor in Parkgrove's later collapse in 1880?
