The amount of money in the area. Was let down with conditions. The bar was dark and felt like a throwback to the 80s at best, and smelt like an old library but The staff was good and friendly. The pitch was in good shape, and the view was good Their a slope of around a metre from one side to another, though. Car parking is available for two quid but save your money and park on the road for free.

Poor facilities. Everything is worn out but no investment being made as club is supposed to be moving to a new ground. (They have been supposedly moving for years). Very poor pitch, massive slope. Surprised the league allow matches to be played. Very crowded behind one goal, literally impossible for two people to pass each other.

Sloping pitch. Tired old ground that either needs rebuilding or they need a new ground. Clubhouse crowded but good view from stand. Few toilets basic ground

Food not very good for a football ground, and no atmosphere in the clubhouse, decent mix of beers though

History (from Wikipedia)


The club originally played at the Meadows, a site donated to the village by Colonel Wiggins.[3] However, the ground was unenclosed and the club could not charge for admission. Following World War II, they relocated to the Guants, a field on Snake Lane. However, this was soon needed for housing. The club then purchased a field on Redditch Road for £1,000, building a new ground that became opened in 1957 and was named Lye Meadow.[3] A record attendance of 13,500 was set for an FA Amateur Cup quarter-final tie against Enfield in 1964–65, although it is estimated that there were up to 16,000 in the ground.[11]
