Managed to park outside the ground, Nice ground, large stand down one side of the pitch, no pillers in the way so you got a clear view of the game. Great club house, serving chips, pie and peas, chips & curry sauce,and a cracking pint of Abbeydale, you can take your drinks and food outside and watch the match. Good traditional game of football, no diving,good standard.

Lovely small club , the clubhouse was brilliant… always real ale on hand . However today was a festival so 20 were on sale at a great price. Entertainment followed the football and apart from the result of my team (South Shields) what a great day out.

One of the best non-league grounds I've been to. £8 to get in with my Bolton season ticket, food is great and reasonably priced. Clubhouse is great and modern with multiple screens. Good atmosphere.

Friendly people and good value for money on entry. Reasonably priced food and drink and even an ice cream van was in attendance which was a nice treat in the second half! Stands behind each goal and a seated main stand on the far side of the ground.

History (from Wikipedia)

Following the 1974 merger, the club played at the King George's Playing Field.[2] In 1983 they purchased a plot of derelict land to build their own ground, with the name Irongate taken from the local area.[2] The first game was played in August 1987.[7] The ground was officially named the Sir Tom Finney Stadium after Finney's death in 2014.[8] It currently has a capacity of 3,000, of which 554 is seated and 800 covered.[1]

The record attendance of 2,300 was set for a friendly match against the 
Czech Republic national team shortly before Euro 96, as the Czechs were using Irongate as a training ground;[7] the result was a 9–1 win for the Czechs.[6] The ground has also hosted the home games of the Preston North End women's team and is currently the home of Blackburn Rovers Ladies.[9]
