Great family orientated club with a bar and hot food outlet. The playing surface was also excellent especially considering the amount of rain we've experienced. We were given a really warm welcome by Terry the club Chairman.

Good ground, plenty of space. Loved the Frankfurter meal deal!. All in all a great away day. Much better than Stowmarket!

Went to for ground hopping, finished Isthmian Premier League. Given free stuff, spoke to nice people. Only problem was the children, quite rude and not paying attention to the football match!

History (from Wikipedia)


During the early days of the club, Brightlingsea played at Bell Green in Bellfield Close, before moving to the Recreation Ground in Regent Road in the 1920s.[4] The club moved to North Road in 1929, having bought the site from Reg Girling for £400.[5] A stand with bench seating and dressing rooms were built, and the local press funded the new press box, which was initially also used as dressing room for the referee and linesmen.[5] The opening match was played on 7 September 1929 against Parkeston Railway, with Brightlingsea winning 4–1.[5] The stand was dismantled in 1977.[5] A lean-to cover was subsequently built next to the clubhouse and benches installed to meet ground grading requirements.[5] Floodlights were erected in 1988 and inaugurated with a match against Colchester United.[5] In 2014 a 107-seat stand was installed after being bought from eBay,[6] with a 150-capacity covered terrace added in 2017.[7]
