Looking back at Rushden & Diamonds’ now defunct former home Nene Park

Rushden & Diamonds’s former home Nene Park started getting demolished at the start of last year.

The stadium was home to Irthlingborough Diamonds between 1969 and 1992. It become of the home of merger club Rushden Town and Irthlingborough Diamonds to form Rushden & Diamonds, where it was theirs between 1992 and 2011. After the club folded, it became Kettering Town’s home for 18 months, but the club left the venue in November 2012 to play at Corby, due to the costs of running the ground.

Rather sad sight to what it once was!
