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 Glasgow based track at Wishaw first opened its gates for greyhound racing on 26th January 1934. The track was situated at 3° 56' W 55° 46' N and had a circumference of 400 yards. Its principal races were the Wishaw St Leger, the Wishaw Gold Cup, the Wishaw Spring Cup and the Pitmans Derby. Sprints were run over 300 yards, standard races over 500 yards, distance races over 700 yards, and extended races over 900 yards. After operating successfully for over 65 years, the flapping track held its final meeting on 1st September 2001. The site on which the former track once stood is still visible and is used as a sports ground.

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
