Alexandra Meadows


Alexandra Meadows

Alexandra Meadows is the home ground of the East Lancashire Cricket Club in Blackburn.[1]

Between 1878 and 1881 the ground was used as the home venue for the Blackburn Rovers football team, following their move from the Pleasington Cricket Ground.[2] The first Rovers match at the Meadows came in 1878 against Partick Thistle.[3] In 1881 they left the ground to play at a newly built venue at Leamington Street.[2]

The venue also hosted one match by the England national football team; a game against Wales played on 26 February 1881.[3]
