I have always believed that half the Deva is in England and half is in Wales. However, when looking at a map earlier it looks like the ground is totally in England. Can anyone clarify how much/little of the stadium is in each country?

All of the pitch is in Wales and only a tiny section of the clubs offices are in England.

So it's not actually possible to score a goal in two different countries on the same day?

Not unless you kicked the ball so hard it flew over the corner of the West Stand and Harry Mac Terrace, over the river, and all the way to Broughton where it would fly into an Airbus UK net.

It is indeed the only ground to be in two different countries in the world.

I think someone at Google Maps needs to learn what the boundaries are then. i can imagine a few Welsh people not being chuffed that the land is marked as being in England.

What have I got to do with it? rolleyes.gif


I think Wales was annexed by Edward I in the 13th century. So technically its a principality.

A look at Cheshire county council's web site ....inter active mapping, shows that almost all the Deva stadium is in wales , the boundary run's across the car park in front of the blue's bar and just touches the corner of the office block,.. so only a small part of the car park is in england and the actual stadium itself is in wales

I was once told that the touchline in front of the Vaughan Stand is roughly the English/Welsh border, so every time someone takes a throw-in or corner from that side, they're launching the ball from one country to another

Having said that, neither Wales nor England are countries technically

Of course Wales and England are both countries. The United Kingdom is a nation state, however. Technically, that is.
