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

Had funeral wake there, the queue for the bar was ridiculous, only 2 people serving?? Why ?? Dont they realise if you have more staff on you earn more money ? These people need a course on how to run a business πŸ™„πŸ™„to stand waiting for 15 minutes at a wake is not on .

Will always be a favourite ground of a rebel following our recent visit and winning the league. Very good sized clubhouse and quality pitch. Decent space behind both goals, downside was service at the food kiosk and some staff's attitude but apart from that a decent little ground.

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.
