First visit. Facilities are more than I expected. Great crowd. Very patient in the long.queues for the bar. Very nice bar staff trying to cope. Shame more staff weren't available. Fast food outlet was clean, well organised, and pleasant staff.
I went to visit Nyewood Lane in November 2018, with Wingate & Finchley. The moment I arrived into the ground, I was really impressed with the facilities. The club shop sell plenty of matchday programmes from a variety of clubs, and a good amount of Bognor Regis Town merchandise for the home fans to buy. I enjoyed sitting in the club house and liked the friendly atmosphere there, also I was pleased to see how clean and well maintained the toilets were.
The structure of the stadium was impressive, and especially with the amount of home fans that were in attendance, considering Bognor Regis Town are a well supported club. Once I was standing behind the goal, it was amusing to see a few seagulls coming and going as it really did give a coastal feel to see them in attendance!
Even though Wingate & Finchley lost 4-2, it was an enjoyable away day and would look forward to more visits to Nyewood Lane in the future.
Stadium The club play at Nyewood Lane, Bognor Regis, PO21 2TY. The ground has a capacity of 4,500, most of which has covered accommodation. The clubhouse end of the ground saw the addition of an unusual 'beach brolly' style terrace cover in 2018, although this was severely damaged and as a result pulled down due to Storm Ciara in 2020. The summer of 2020 saw the construction of a new 367 seated stand, with the roof at the clubhouse end set to be replaced in October 2020. The ground's first set of floodlights were bought from Wembley Stadium and fitted onto telegraph poles. In the 1970s the current floodlight pylons were added, with four along each touchline, before two of these were removed on each side in the early 1990s.
On 15 August 2008 a fire destroyed the clubhouse, and was suspected to be arson. Work on a new social club, named 'Seasons', commenced during the summer of 2009 and opened in November the same year.
The playing surface won an award for the best in all three divisions of the Conference in 2008. Season 2010/11 also saw the pitch win an award, this time voted the best in all three divisions of the Isthmian League, in a poll of referees. The club also won an award two seasons running – 2007/08 and 2008/09, for the best canteen, as voted by supporters of rival Conference South clubs.
