I was able to contact the club by email to arrange disabled parking (which was free). Getting into the ground was very easy and so close to the parking, Everybody we came across was very polite and friendly. Standing and seating options was available, as was lots of food and drink facilities. It was very easy to find. Had a good time here.
Ok experience. A strange place to have a football ground, in the middle of a residential area away from everything. It looks a bit run down. Pitch was nice, but the stadium and seating area was ok. Club house had a good atmosphere in there, but was cash only, so I had to walk about 15mins to Morrisons. Club shop was small but covered a lot of things you’d expect to find in a club shop. They’d run out of warm food at half time which spoilt the opportunity to try some football food. Overall, an ok experience, could do with some money to give it a face lift.
Good prices for tickets and food, stadium good and a good place to be if you have nothing to do on a Saturday, the atmosphere is good as well as staff if you have a car, there is lots of places to park around the ground or in the clubs car park. Overall a good stadium a lot of seating near the tunnel and a bar, two food sections and a club shop, the pitch is a great AstroTurf pitch, I have played on it before and it’s amazing to play on.
History The stadium formerly used Baspograss, on which Hyde United played Darlington in the 1st Round Proper in 1994, the last non-qualifying FA Cup game on an artificial surface for twenty years, until Maidstone United played Stevenage on their artificial surface in 2014.
In 2010, Hyde United changed their name to Hyde F.C. and had a kit change to black and white. Ewen Fields had a make over in summer 2010, funded by Manchester City as part of the clubs' partnership. In 2015, the club reverted to being called Hyde United. Structure and facilities Ewen Fields is made up of five stands, the Main Stand, the Scrattin Shed, the Tinker's Passage End, the Leigh Street Stand and the Walker Lane End. All of the stands are covered.
The Main Stand is the only seated stand at Ewen Fields. It also houses the players' dressing rooms, board room and sponsors lounge as well as a refreshments bar and toilets.
Next to the Main Stand is the Scrattin' Shed, although it is more commonly known as the Shed End, despite not actually being at the end of the ground. This is where the most vociferous home fans usually congregate. The Social Club is behind the Shed, and traverses the boundary wall. There is a door inside the ground, and one in the car park.
The Tinker's Passage End (named after the footpath which runs behind the stand) is behind the goal nearest to the Scrattin' Shed. Unusually, the stand runs at an acute angle to the goal line. This is because the pitch prior to the Astroturf was not a perfect rectangle, and the stand, which used to be parallel to the goal line, shows the extent of this previous irregularity. Away fans are housed in the Tinker's Passage End on the rare occasions that games at Ewen Fields are segregated.
Running opposite to the Main Stand and Scrattin' Shed is the Leigh Street Stand, behind the home and away dugouts where another set of home fans stand. A second refreshments bar is also on this side.
The Walker Lane End (sometimes referred to as the Baths End due to the leisure centre behind the stand) is behind the goal at the opposite end to the Tinker's Passage End. When the Astroturf was laid, and the pitch realigned, it was also lengthened at this end. As a result, the Walker Lane Stand was built afterwards, and is parallel to the goal line.
