Nice people. Average food but unfortunately the running track around the pitch and lack of covered viewing behind the goals are a bit of a let down

Not the best athletics stadium I've been to. The track surface itself is hard. There is not a lot of space at the high jump/cage end, in fact very cramped. You are waiting behind the cage which is not ideal for throwers as there is not enough room either side. The high jump fan is small, with many jumpers starting their run up on the track. In need of TLC however despite this, the competition ran smoothly, with knowledgeable and competent officials.

Commenting as a visiting away supporter, the pitch could be watered and leveled. Because of the surrounding athletic track it has a little detrimental affect on the viewing experience. The staff and volunteers working for the club were extremely accomodating and friendly.

Good 6 lane athletics track. Toilets were clean and close to the track. Boundary fence around the track is in need of repair and there a lots of bits of broken chain link fencing to snag your clothes on or catch your shoelaces on.

History (from Wikipedia)

The Hornchurch Stadium is an athletics and football stadium located on Bridge Avenue in Upminster in the London Borough of HaveringEast London, England. It is home to the Hornchurch F.C. and West Ham United L.F.C. football clubs and Havering Mayesbrook Athletics Club.

History[edit]

The stadium was opened in 1956 by Hornchurch Urban District Council.[1] It was the home ground of the original Hornchurch F.C. until they were dissolved in 2005.

Facilities[edit]

The stadium has a capacity of 3,000, of which 800 is seated and 1,400 is covered.[2] One stand, the 'Riverside', took its name from the River Ingrebourne, a few feet away.

In November 2016, the main stand on the Riverside section of the ground was renamed "The Colin McBride Stand", after former AFC Hornchurch chairman and manager Colin McBride by the AFC Hornchurch Supporters Association.
