Reasonably tidy ground with a new 3G pitch. At present the clubhouse is being renovated and so drinks are served from cans at various huts around the stadium. Pretty handy for Herne Bay station but a bit of a walk to the town centre and in particular the seafront.

Great place, you can even buy a John Smiths and enjoy drinking it while you watch the game. Only £10 entry and a good atmosphere

I've been the coach driver for the away teams a few times and always been welcomed. Food is typical burgers, chips pies, tea, coffee etc, all good and fairly priced. Ground is being improved and staff are friendly. Ground is off a residential road.

History (from Wikipedia)


After being reformed in the 1930s, the club initially played at the Memorial Park, which had previously been a rubbish tip.[4] The final match at Memorial Park was played on 7 May 1953, after which the club moved to Winch's Field, named after the Winch's brickworks, which had previously been on the site.[4] The new ground cost £5,000 to build and a crowd of over 1,000 attended the inaugural game on 26 August 1953, a 2–2 draw with Tunbridge Wells.[4]

Covered stands were later built on all four sides of the pitch. Floodlights were installed in 1992 and a covered terrace behind one goal erected two years later.[4] The ground currently has a capacity of 3,000, of which 200 is seated and 1,500 under cover.[1] In April 2022 the club announced plans to install an artificial pitch.[10]
