Correct link and ooo. No reason for the ooo (it is not asked for) but to tie up loose ends:

1 An American state capital which shares its name with a popular tv family's home town. SPRINGFIELD PARK (Wigan)

2 A team sport. BASEBALL GROUND (Derby)

3 An actor, novelist, film director and screenwriter (with slightly different spelling). (FELLOWES) FELLOWS PARK (Walsall)

4 A New England state. MAINE ROAD (The Noisy Neighbours)

5 A town in Berkshire. ETON PARK (Burton Albion)

6 An unsuccessful candidate for the US presidency. THE McCAIN STADIUM (Scarborough) - Take your pick about why this is the ooo - no longer in the FL or the club no longer exists

7 A London mainline railway station THE VICTORIA GROUND (Stoke City) - I had Stoke in mind - if Hartlepool have moved as well, I stand corrected.

8 A semi retired Irish broadcaster (best known for a long running Irish tv programme). GAY MEADOW (Shrewsbury) (could have been ooo as well as the only team to have a similar name
at their new ground - New Meadow.

9 An English group who are best known for their only UK number one from 1970. - CHRISTIE PARK (Morcambe)

10 A species of deciduous or semi-deciduous tree. ELM PARK (Reading)
