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
