The Scottish town of Irvine had at least 2 greyhound tracks in the past, the earliest of which opened in the Townhead region of the town on 30th December 1932. Townhead was close to the Scottish horse racecourse of Bogside, which had been the home of the Scottish Grand National until the track closed. Townhead raced once weekly, whilst its more illustrious neighbour, Caledonian Stadium, raced twice a week.

The track was run independently for almost 35 years before closing in 1967.

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.
