The first team left Plough Lane in 1991 to groundshare with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
After the Taylor Report the Premier League had made it a stipulation for Clubs that stadiums be made all seated. It was felt that the costs of re-developing Plough Lane or at least trying to make it all seated were prohibitive and the Club eventually left.
