Nobes' Trivia Question 19 solution

A couple of weeks ago, we asked whether you could answer the question that's baffled folk up and down the country all season:


He told you:

This ground I'm at has been used for everything from athletics to rugby, to staging pop concerts.

It even once played host to a UEFA Cup Winners Cup match featuring Manchester United.

The grandstand at this ground had to be rebuilt after being destroyed during the Second World War by the German Luftwaffe.

Three quarters of this stadium - which is based in the south - was re-developed at the start of the new Millennium.

Did you work out where he was. He was at Plymouth Argyle's Home Park!

Home Park was formerly used by the now extinct rugby club Devonport Albion in the 19th century and from 1901 it was leased by Argyle Athletic Club.

Artists who have staged concerts at the ground include the likes of Elton John, Rod Stewart, and George Michael.

Manchester United, too, played their 1977 UEFA Cup Winners Cup match against Saint Etienne at Home Park.

The stadium was hit by German bombs in April 1941 in a series of raids on the city known as the Plymouth Blitz.

Three of the stands were renovated in the early Noughties, with just the old Grandstand remaining.

Although, there are plans to re-develop this as part of Devon's hopes of being part of England's 2018 World Cup bid.

Well done if you got the correct solution. Nobes will have his last trivia question of the season for you shortly.
