HYDE UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB 1919 - 2010
Hyde United played their home games at Ewen Fields. Ewen Fields was built on a series of fields that were originally known as Owen Fields.
Hyde FC folded in 1917, because of what was termed "war fatigue". When the 1914–18 conflict ended, demands were made to resurrect the club. The "new" club was called Hyde United, but it was Hyde F.C. under a new name with many of the same players.
Hyde United's record attendance was set in 1952 when 9,500 spectators attended a game against Nelson.
Ewen Fields is made up of 5 stands: the Main Stand, the Scrattin Shed, the Tinker's Passage end, the Leigh Street stand and the Walker Lane end. All of the stands are covered.
I spent many an happy hour in this ground as a child.I used to love a hot bovril on a cold day ..... and as I got older ,a pie! :)
