Team Profile - St Mirren Football Club
St Mirren Park
On January 3, 2009, St Mirren played their last match at Love Street - their home for more than a century. A crowd of 10,189 turned up for an emotional occasion which ended in a 0-0 draw against Motherwell.
Exactly four weeks later, Saints turned out at the new St Mirren Park on Greenhill Road for the first time and drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock. Kevin Kyle opened the scoring but Dennis Wyness made history as the first St Mirren scorer at the new ground with a late leveller.
The impressive stadium has room for 8,000 fans in four all-seater stands.
