The ground was opened in 1986, although most of the developments followed later. The Main Stand was opened in 1998 and has been expanded from its original capacity of 100 to now seat 150, while the opposite side boasts two covered areas. These were constructed in 2006 to replace a much simpler covered standing area that straddled the halfway line.
These two covered terraces had only been in operation for one season before the nearest to the entrance had 100 seats fitted to it in the Summer of 2007 in order to meet ground grading requirements. This Stand is shown in the picture below left. When this stand was fitted with seats, the original brick built dugouts were demolished and new, larger perspex dugouts were sited either side of the Main Stand. The Away Team bench is more or less directly opposite where the old benches were. Again, this was carried out in order to meet FA regulations, which state that both benches must be an equal distance from the halfway line.
All covered areas offer column-free viewing, with the exception of the new cover at the Short Lane End, which sits above four steps of terracing. This area was added in the spring of 2018 to meet ground grading requirements. The Fuel Plant End (nearest the entrance) is very narrow, although there is hard standing and just enough room for one row of fans to watch the game. The Tea Bar, stocking all the usual hot food and drinks, is situated on the half-way line down the car-park side stand. Meanwhile, the pitch has received significant investment and is now among the better surfaces in the division.
The clubhouse is outside the stadium and is fairly small. The beer range will always include John Smith’s Cask and / or London Pride, with Guest Ales sometimes available. We also serve Foster’s, Guinness, Strongbow and Courage Best on draught, as well as a range of bottled beers and soft drinks.
