To be honest the ground and surroundings are a bit of a dump... However the volunteers here make the experience a different level. They work with what they have got and go above and beyond to create a good experience. Some fan trouble has been reported here in 2022 but this seemed to not exist on my visit but I was made aware of it before attending. Segregation was in place at the time. Food served here was good value non league grub

Nice ground and friendly staff. Away fans are segregated unfortunately and a one steward in particular was quite rude. Director delivered our fans a few pints though which was nice!

Well tended grass pitch and the services are great too, with good priced beer and great staff members , good footy style food available before and during the game , if you haven't been before come and have a enjoyable (even more so if we win) afternoon. Cheers

A good day spoilt by over policing. But some of the friendliest Officers I've ever had the pleasure to meet.Ground one star, facilities (away end) poor.Get a grip police escort from the ground. Fans we met friendly,local Pub the Bell was friendly and welcoming. Day out non League football gone mad

History (from Wikipedia)


The club has played at the Spencer Stadium (currently known as the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium for sponsorship purposes) on Station Approach since the start of the 1934–35 season, having originally played at Middleton Road.[4] When the club joined the Southern League in 1966, floodlights were installed and a new clubhouse was built to replace the railway carriages that the club had used for changing rooms.[12]

Financial problems led to the ground deteriorating, and the main stand was closed in 1985 before being demolished in 1990.[12] A new stand was built on the north-eastern touchline in the summer of 2000, but towards one end of the pitch rather than near the half-way line.[12] Both ends of the ground had uncovered terracing installed, with the other touchline having terracing along half its length.[12] The ground currently has a capacity of 6,500, of which 250 is seated and covered.[1] A new flood defence scheme was completed in 2012 to protect the stadium, the local railway station and nearby housing.[13]
