|METHIL GREYHOUND STADIUM
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.
|The Scottish East coast town of Methil was part of the Burgh of Buckhaven and had a greyhound track around the perimeter of the local East Fife football ground on Kirkland Road. It was called Denbeath and situated at 3° 0' W 56° 11' N. It held its opening meeting on 30th May 1934, holding sprints over 310 yards and standard races over 510 yards. The meeting at the independently run track was popular and racing continued for 27 years before the final meeting took place in 1961.|
|The ground on which the former greyhound 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
