The ground was the first in England to have a cantilever stand, which was built in 1958. The ground was situated in the centre of Scunthorpe, at the junction of Doncaster Road and Henderson Avenue. As part of the relocation deal the site was sold to the supermarket chain Safeway who constructed a store on the site. After Safeway were taken over in 2004 by Morrisons the store was subsequently sold to Sainsbury's. The site of the centre-spot was highlighted by a plaque in front of the delicatessen counter; however this was later removed and all that remains of the site's former use is a plaque by the entrance to the store.
Attempts to move the cantilever stand to Glanford Park proved impractical, and it was demolished along with the rest of the old stadium.
