Pitch is the worst I have seen at this level. In a slope at a mad degree. Can't believe it is allowed. Serves food and alcohol. Chips and curry sauce was like water on chips. Hope I never have to visit this ground again. Goad in not an afcon supporter
Undoubtedly one of the most picturesque grounds in the league. Walking distance from the village of Alvechurch and also the train station for visiting fans. Serves a great pint and hot food available.

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.

Visited from Needham Market. Friendly atmosphere but in need of some cash injection as all grass roots football clubs do. Ground looks very dated and it’s a real shame Just a note guys. We turned up at 12 and the ground was coned off. If this would of been open we would of spent our money in the clubhouse watching the football instead of the local pub. Parking is adequate but £2 for a mud bath with a white car is a bit strong. We parked on the main road

History (from Wikipedia)

Ground[edit]

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]
