This site is not an official website for the track shown here and is neither approved or endorsed by the stadium. I am indebted to Richard English for helping to construct this page. 

One of the earliest tracks in the country to open, the Scottish town of Carfin, a short distance from Motherwell, had a greyhound track which was situated at 3° 57' W 55° 48' N and first opened for racing in 1927. The track had a circumference of 440 yards, with Sprints run over 300 yards, Standard Races over 510 and 580 ards, and Distance races over 790 yards.

The track closed for the final time in 1999 and the site on which the former track once stood is now covered by a housing estate.

I am grateful to Jon Seddon for the following link to a map showing the whereabouts of the old track

This section gives a comprehensive picture of the badges produced by the track throughout the ages, but only provides the briefest of glimpses of its history. For those wishing to undertake further research we can recommend a visit to where further reading can be undertaken.
