The club originally played at the Oaks before moving to The Doris Wells Memorial Field in 1969. The club’s ambition to progress to the North West Counties League has seen a switch to Cougar Park for this season, with this fixture being their first match at the stadium.The ground has been home to Rugby League club Keighley Cougars, since it opened in 1899, when it was known as Lawkholme Lane, until the name change in 1995.  Football was previously played at the ground between 2003 and 2010 when Silsden F.C. were tenants. The Main Stand is named in honor of Danny Jones who died during a Keighley game in London in 2015. The stand has wooden step seats in a mixture of red and green, with terracing and the dugouts in front. The stand also houses the player changing rooms, clubhouse and backs onto the neighbouring cricket pitch.The Terry Hollindrake Stand at the north end is fully covered, with the opposite goal and East Stand having open terracing.✔628 Cougar Park✔628 Cougar Park✔628 Cougar ParkSteeton AFC(7th) v AFC Blackpool(5th)NWCL - First Division North Matchday 43pm koIt didn't take long for Steeton to get off the mark at their new home. A corner kick from the left was met by the head of Andy Briggs to give his side a fourth minute lead. Surprisingly that solitary goal settled it, both teams created plenty of chances but neither goalkeeper was really tested. Just like the match at Avro the other week, I saw Steeton take an early lead and hold on for the win, which maintains their solid start to the season with 3 wins out of four.Matchday Stats & Spondoolicks SAFC 1(Briggs 4)AFCB 0Att.177Entertainment 5/10Admission £5Programme £2Pin badge £3Coffee £1✔628 Cougar Park✔628 Cougar Park✔628 Cougar Park#HeedHopperA heads down no nonsense shift at work, was followed by a swift drive to Houghton, to cadge a lift off Lee & Katie for the noon departure to West Yorkshire. On route we stopped off for a refreshment break at the Hunters Inn on the A658, before arriving in Keighley just after 2pm, The first port of call was  the Livery Rooms, where I quickly nipped in for a swift half before the match started. After the game we rounded off the afternoon by calling into Otley for a ‘Spoons tea and the quite traffic meant we were back hyem at eight bells. ✔628 Cougar Park
