A nice set up, it looks as though it has had a lot of recent upgrading , new stands and an artificial pitch. There is a really amazing structure behind one goal that looks really old but well preserved. There is a good burger hut which also sells souvenirs. The ground is not easy to find but has a reasonably size car park

Went to a party there. The room was well done out. The drinks at the bar were cheap. The staff very friendly. No complaints about the hall or the football club. I would book my party there if I lived closer. The venue is a very professional place.

Great hot chocolate and a decent game of non league football!

The downside first, parking at the ground and on the nearby streets is very limited. The club themselves recommend parking at Eversley Leisure centre, what was the best option. There is though no obvious indication of how to get to the ground from there. It's only about 10 min walk though once you know the way. I have been to a lot worse stadiums (in higher leagues), there's one large stand and two small stands opposite, with sheltered standing areas behind the goals. The staff were very friendly, the bar area was quite modern, the burger stall was a bit chaotic, some people's orders were taken and not passed to the kitchen, but it was the first match of the season so you expect teething troubles. It is a very nice ground, a good atmosphere and definitely worth a visit.

History (from Wikipedia)

Ground[edit]

The club were originally based at what later became Pitsea Market, before moving to Gun Meadow. When the A13 was built, the Gun Meadow ground was subject to a compulsory purchase order, resulting in the club moving to its current home on Crown Avenue.[2] The site was purchased from the Basildon Development Corporation, as well as a prefabricated building that became the club's dressing rooms.[6] It was officially opened with a friendly match against Ex-Tottenham Hotspur All-Star team.[6] A seated stand was built on one side of the pitch, with the original bench seating later replaced with red tip-up seats.[6] A covered standing area was erected next to the seated stand.[6]

The ground currently has a capacity of 2,661, of which 300 is seated.
