Football fan visits all 92 league grounds

A FOOTBALL fan from Ipsden has joined a select group of people to have visited all 92 stadiums in the Football League.

Philip Harper, 33, travelled to Hartlepool United’s Victoria Park in October to complete the set, 15 years after he came up with the idea.

He has now visited all 20 Premier League grounds, 24 in the Championship, 24 in League One and 24 in League Two.

Mr Harper, a Tottenham Hotspur fan, first decided to take on the challenge at the end of the 1997/98 season, having visited a number of grounds while following Spurs and Reading.

He also resolved to visit all the grounds by car and estimates he has travelled more than 22,000 in five different cars.
