One of my favourite non-league grounds in the Midlands. Old fashioned terraces, loud crowds and good views all round. If they could stock a decent beer in the little serving hatch by the stand it would be even better! Had to make do with a Carling

Nice place, lovely hospitality . The clubhouse is a bit on the small side, players of both teams, having to sit on the steps to eat their food. Good crowd and has a decent clubshop considering .
great ground won't talk about the score UTC ⛪

History (from Wikipedia)

Halesowen played on at least three different grounds in the late 1870s before moving to the Stourbridge Road Ground, now known as the Grove, around 1881.[12] The ground was used for cricket and was three-sided for many years. A small stand behind the top goals and a cricket pavilion were built in the 1920s. Before this, the players would change in the Waggon & Horses pub on Stourbridge Road.[13] In 1934 another small wooden stand was constructed along the perimeter of the James Grove Button Factory.[14] During the 1950s, the Shed end was constructed along with changing rooms, built on the site of the old cricket pavilion.

In the 1980s, the three sided ground was converted to four with the addition of uncovered terracing along the Recreation Park side. In 1987, the 420-seat Harry Rudge Stand was completed on the site of the 1930s wooden stand; it was extended in 1998 and again in 2000.

The floodlights which the club won in 1983 lasted until 2001, when a new set were installed and officially inaugurated at a friendly match against 
Wolverhampton Wanderers.
