Came here on a snowy Tuesday night. £10 to get in - bargain. Great little ground, great value food and lovely staff. Will definitely be back here on the days Bolton aren't playing!

A great Saturday afternoon spent at Atherton, lovely local club with some great fans. £3 pints and a Gaz Peet free kick masterclass 👌

An enjoyable first visit to the Skuna Stadium despite the appalling weather! Friendly people at the turnstiles and all around the ground with some lovely reasonably priced food on offer, the chips are definitely worth trying.

History (from Wikipedia)

The club have played at Alder House since their establishment, and it is currently known as 'The Skuna Stadium' for sponsorship reasons.[10] At some point during their tenure, the pitch was rotated 90º, and floodlights were installed in 1994.[1] One stand was described "leaning forward as if in prayer for its continued survival",[1] before it was demolished in 2007.[2] Following ground works crowdfunded by supporters in 2020,[11] the ground currently has two stands with covered seating, with two more covered stands for standing spectators, one of which has been expanded to provide cover for disabled spectators. Alongside the clubhouse, the ground has an additional two outdoors refreshment facilities.
