Nobes' Trivia Question Three - solution

Two weeks ago, we asked the question:


Here's what he told you.

This week I'm at a football ground. This stadium was opened in this Millennium, and the first team to win a league game here played in blue.

This ground, which isn't in the Football League, saw its record attendance in a game against Leyton Orient. Oh, and there's a big bronze statue outside this ground too.

Did you get the answer?

Nobes was at Oxford United's Kassam Stadium!

The ground was opened in 2001, and Rochdale, playing in blue, beat the home side 2-1 in the first Football League game there.

The U's now play in the Conference, a division they were relegated to after a final day loss against Leyton Orient, where they had their record attendance. The big bronze statue outside the ground is of an Ox.

Well done if you got the answer right, and Nobes will have another poser for you shortly.
