15/11/22 Berks & Bucks Cup Maidenhead United 1-1 Slough Town. Entry £10, no programme, £3.50 Chips and curry sauce. I like this ground very much as it has lots of character. There are terraced at either end behind the goals. Both ends are covered. The terrace opposite Bell Street is only partially covered. There is a terrace covering half the pitch on the side of the dugouts but this is open to the elements. Opposite this is the only stand that has seating and this is fully covered. There is also an executive lounge portacabin. Parking can be found in some of the multi storey car parks. I went to park in the railway station but this has been revamped with no public parking available except for disabled. I spotted a pop up car park just at the end of Bell Street. It was £4 for 4 hours and paid by using the Ringo App. If you want to visit York Road better make it quick as the Magpies are looking to move.

I support a group of Adults with learning difficulties to attend walking football on a Wednesday afternoon for an hour. Great astro turf covered facility which means an all year round session. The young coaches have taken time to get to know the customers and will engage with them having ascertained their skill level. Alot of verbal encouragement throughout the session makes it fun to learn new skills. Keep up the good work Magpies in the Community.

Maidenhead United are a semi professional football club who were formed way back in the 1800's and were part of the very first FA Cup competition. They have been at the same ground since then and, like so many clubs in the non league, their ground is filled with a rugged charm.

Not the best ground in the country. However, maidenhead fans are pretty friendly and I would say, welcome away fans.

History (from Wikipedia)

The ground was initially the home of Maidenhead Cricket Club and it was with their kind permission that shortly after the football club began in 1870, Maidenhead played their first match at York Road on 16 February 1871 against Marlow. The Magpies have continued to play home matches here, without a break, to the present day.

The current capacity of the ground is 4,500 (550 seated) and holds an "A" grading. The club's record attendance is 7,989 for the 1936 
FA Amateur Cup quarter-final against Southall. A further 2,000 spectators are estimated to have watched the match from the adjacent railway embankment. The ground record attendance was set on Easter Monday 1947 when 8,277 people paid total receipts of £494 to watch the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup Final between Slough Town and Wycombe Wanderers.

The ground facilitates fans in a mixture of covered all-seater stands, covered and uncovered traditional terraces and flat concrete by the side of the pitch. As well as the normal facilities for lower-league football, the ground hosts 
Stripes Bar which can be hired out for functions. The ground is located just a few minutes walk away from the town centre and from Maidenhead railway station.
