Everholm Stadium
Location Annan, Dumfries and Galloway

Everholm Stadium is an athletics [1] and football stadium in Annan, Dumfries and Galloway. It was the home ground of Gretna F.C. 2008 for most of the 2008–09 season, although the club's management stated their desire to move the club to Raydale Park in Gretna, home to the club's defunct predecessor Gretna F.C.[2] Galabank, the ground of Annan Athletic, the team who replaced Gretna in the Scottish Football League, is just a few hundred metres from Everholm.[3]

Late in the 2008–09 season, the new owners of Raydale Park allowed Gretna 2008 to play their home games there.[4]
