Decent little ground. From Club shop to the kiosk, the staff were really friendly. Food good too.

Went to watch a local Derby game on Boxing day, good atmosphere excellent catering facilities, stand was clean no build up of debris, my only gripe would be that on this occasion there were no goals to cheer

Nice little ground, been twice as a Tamworth fan. Entry price was fair, food and drink is affordable but quite a long queue. Pitch is a new 3g pitch. A few home fans were able to take their dogs into the ground which was nice to see. Overall feels like a warm, welcoming club. Downsides: Tarmac standing areas are all on one level so if there was a big attendance it might be difficult to see. Behind the one goal and on the far side are grassy banks which we stood on for a better view (thankfully dry), a bit of investment into making these into concrete stepped terraces would be a major improvement. Not much in the way of shelter if it rains. Apart from the seats, the only sheltered areas were small, set back from and lower down than the pitch. Not much parking, had to park down a side street on both occasions but it was only a short walk and seemed like a safe area.

History (from Wikipedia)

Ground[edit]

The club play at Kirkby Road in Barwell. The sports complex also incorporates bowling facilities and a cricket pitch, which was once used for first class matches. Floodlights were installed prior to the 1992–93 season, and a number of seats were obtained from the old main stand at Leicester City's Filbert Street ground. A new covered stand to accommodate five hundred spectators was built prior to the 1996–97 season. Towards the end of the 2000–01 season, a new 256 seater cantilever stand was erected, and the club have made further improvements to allow them to progress up the pyramid. The ground currently has a capacity of 2,500, of which 256 is seated and 750 covered.[6]

I'm guessing this is more of a drinkers pub as the food is poor. I'm not a snob but I do like my food. For the price, you kind of expect the quality to be... Read More
