Can anyone assist with identifying this football ground?

On the reverse of this postcard, someone has suggested Newcastle, but that might be the chap with what looks like a black/White scarf...which is pretty spurious.

The stand looks quite distinctive however...

Any suggestions?

Cheers, Ian

Not the Dell - I have a number of Southampton postcards from around 1912-1913 which show a very similar wooden stand. I suspect though that the stand was probably a typical construction for a number of clubs around that time.
The Southampton ground had pillars too except the pillars did not extend in front of the wooden stand but ended behind the wooden slats.

Thanks for that.

I can rule that one out.

Cheers.

Thanks for the recent suggestions.

I think based on this I can rule out West Ham.

Keep them coming...
