Nuneaton St Nicholas
Though the Lilywhites never played against Nuneaton St Nicholas, they still play a part in our story. Founded in 1889 as the youth team of the St Nicholas Church in Nuneaton, the 'Saints' became Nuneaton Town in 1894. In 1919, they obtained the Manor Park Ground in Nueaton, which later became the home of Nuneaton Borough, The Club was disbanded in 1937, having the previous year sold their Manor Park Ground to Nuneaton Corporation.
Manor Park Ground
The Lilywhites first played Nuneaton Borough in 1959, who were founded in 1938. For most of their history they played at Manor Park, which after 1980 was owned Nuneaton Borough. With the ground became unable to cope with the financial needs of a modern football club, the Board made the hard choice to move to a new ground. So in the summer of 2007 they moved to a new stadium in Liberty Way. The following spring saw the club go into liquidation as a result of financial problems.
