Friendly football club . I presented female , it was a pleasant experience. Always a highlight when security call me flower ☺️🏳️‍⚧️ I went with the loljuou Kevin Chapman meet up and the club hosted it well . The ground has a easy to navigate set up and the bar is straight Infront of you as you come in. It's a shame there was a lack of space for us to sit but I don't think this can be helped . It would benefit from a bigger seating area . The food on match day was decently priced and the ques were shortish . Nice burger . All in all , a friendly ground , definitely one of the better non league grounds . I will be back :). LGBTQ + friendly experience.

Came to watch the Brakes v Boston game on Non League Saturday. Great little set up, atmospheric little ground and a thousand plus fans here today. Free parking and friendly locals. Even pets were allowed in the ground. Its not all about the Prem, support your non league clubs or lose them.

This is a friendly ground in a strange location... First off you can only reach the ground by car as it is located a mile or so out of the city centre with no footpaths. The club does provide a bus service from the station and a couple of local pubs. You needn't worry if you're arriving by car as there is plenty of parking at the ground. This was free! The club bar is modern, clean and very welcoming. For food there is a great burger van inside the ground as well as a tuck shop selling sweets etc. The crowd and stewards are really friendly with any banter remainis at that. The fans swap ends at half time. One end is open, but there is a stand undercover just to the side. The pitch was is great nick and the organisation to leave the carpark was fantastic. No drums allowed, due to few complaints from a local.. Nice old fashioned, old skool place to visit. Great stuff. Perfect family club.

History (from Wikipedia)

The club initially played at Tachbrook Road, which was later renamed the Windmill Ground after the adjacent Windmill pub.[3][11] The ground had previously been used by Leamington Town, but had been sold to Coventry City for £1,739 6s 8d when the club folded in 1937,[9] with Coventry using it as the home ground of their 'A' team.[3] However, the ground was bought by Lockheed after World War II and covered terracing was built to complement the existing seated stand.[3][11] Floodlights were installed in 1965, having previously been used at Maine Road.[9] Capacity was gradually expanded to 5,000, of which 1,600 was under cover and 440 seated.[9]

During the 1983–84 season the ground was sold to the AC Lloyd property development company despite the club trying to buy the site. Plans to build a new ground were unsuccessful, as were efforts to move to the Edmonscote Athletics Stadium.
[3] As a result, the club went into abeyance, with the last match at the Windmill Ground being played on 16 April 1988, a 2–2 draw with Walsall Wood in front of 500 spectators.[9] Despite the club's status, a group of supporters purchased land on Harbury Lane in nearby Whitnash,[11] which was turned into football pitches from 1993. After being officially opened in 1999 as the New Windmill Ground, the club started playing again in 2000.[3] Floodlights, seats and the PA system were taken from Oxford United's Manor Ground,[11] which closed in 2001. The ground currently has a capacity of 2,300, of which 294 is seated and 720 under cover.[1] In 2015 the name of the ground changed to The Phillips 66 Community Stadium after sponsorship from the American company.[12]

The club are due to move to a new 5,000-capacity stadium at Europa Way at the start of the 2022–23 season. Land was purchased in January 2019 and construction is expected to begin in autumn 2020. The £6 million ground will include an artificial pitch, conference and hospitality facilities and a gym.

Pizzas have a very good balance of flavor. Thin crust with an appropriate amount of toppings are a win. The dairy free mozarella is top quality. Would like... Read More
