Shinji Ono

On 28 September 2012, it was announced that Shinji Ono had signed with new A-League club Western Sydney Wanderers on a two-year deal as the club's marquee player. The Wanderers were originally chasing former German international Michael Ballack, before opting to sign Ono. He made his debut for the Wanderers on 6 October, in a scoreless draw against Central Coast Mariners, in the first game of the season.

The Track's capacity is 3,000. Its record attendance was 12,692 in 1951 for the Muratti Final between Guernsey and Jersey.

The Track was the main stadium that hosted Guernsey's Muratti tournament games until 2003, when Guernsey's Muratti games were moved to Footes Lane. Because of poor performances at Footes Lane and criticism from fans regarding the stadium's athletics track impairing views of games and affecting the atmosphere, Guernsey's Muratti games were moved back to The Track in 2009. The Track has also been used as the home ground for the Guernsey Senior County League representative side in the English FA Inter-League Cup.

In 2012, it was suggested that Guernsey F.C. would move from Footes Lane to The Track if they continued to rise through the English football league system as Footes Lane would require further development. This, however, was denied by Guernsey F.C. chairman, Steve Dewsnip.

The Track has also been used to host boxing.

The Track had originally been considered as the best place to watch team sport in Guernsey, but this idea is changing in favour of Footes Lane. It had a history of being dusty and having an uneven surface.
