Lovely little football club. Friendly staff and an array of good services during and after matches.

A different kind of experience to league football a bit more laid back with spectators drinking pints of beer whilst watching the game. Prices for beer in the clubhouse and the popular food hatch very competitive. I cannot envisage Bamber Bridge climbing any further in the league pyramid unless they can get more supporters attending but I know it is hard with Preston on the doorstep. It is worth seeing a game because it is honest full on competitive football and quite a surprising good standard at times considering it is only the Northern Premier League Premier Division as I write.

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]
