Falkirk FC Home Grounds

The exact identities of Falkirk FC are rather blurred. Okay from 1884 they played almost completely at Brockville, but I'm not here to drone on about early grounds and maps and stuff.

I don't know if it's a record [don't really care either] but a very strange quirk happened when Falkirk left Brockville to share with Stenhousemuir for a season. It seems that Falkirk played five consecutive 'home' matches at five different stadia [stadiums?].

Scottish League 10th May2003 Falkirk 2 Inverness CT 3 at Brockville Park, Falkirk
Pre Season Friendly 7th July 2003 Falkirk 3 Queen's Park 0 at Grangemouth Stadium, Grangemouth
Stirlingshire Cup 19th July 2003 Falkirk 0 Dumbarton 0 at Ochilview Park, Stenhousemuir
Pre Season Friendly 27th July 2003 Falkirk 1 Wigan Ath 0 at Broadwood Stadium, Cumbernauld
Pre Season Friendly 30th July 2003 Falkirk 1 Celtic 1 at Shyberry Excelsior, Airdrie

I don't know, I might have missed a match, some other teams might have more wanderlust, I just thought it was interesting, but not interesting enough to write anything wordy about it.
