TK#146-TK#150

After a hiatus, TK is back with a whimper. 
146. During the First World War, X (a football club) supported the war effort by allowing the ground to be used as a rifle range for military training. On the outbreak of the Second World War, all outdoor sport was banned by the Government until safety implications could be assessed. When football resumed a few weeks later, X's Chief Constable ordered the ground's closure because of its proximity to probable air-raid targets such as the Y munitions factories. The matter was first raised in Parliament in November 1939, but the Home Secretary felt unable to intervene. By March 1940, when Z (X's ground) had for some time been the only football ground in England still closed, the Chief Constable bowed to public pressure, and a crowd of 13,241 witnessed X's first home game in more than six months.
