Picturesque Pitch Perfect Setting. Lovely Gound with Castle in background.
Welcoming Match, Matlock vs Mansfield. Only downside is the POOR PA System, never heard a single announcement...
Best Wishes with the Season Matlock.
Parked in the lovely town centre and walked about 5 minutes to the ground. Beautiful views from the ground in a well maintained, friendly stadium. Food was decent, the staff were thoroughly helpful and welcoming, as were the fans. Nice little club house. Facilities were decent, a great day out.
Excellent place to go, lovely atmosphere, but MUST bring to attention of persons in charge of The ground etc. The Security Staff totally SHAMEFUL and total Disgrace. My 9yr old Son was given a football from a Matlock Town Trainer. Later on a member of the security staff took it off me, I explained the situation. But that wasn't accepted, my Son was so upset cos of this taking place. Totally Disgusted
Great day out at MTFC. Decent ground, spacious bar area, decent food and beer. Friendly enough people, reasonable entry fee (£10) and topped of with a good game of football, second half, after a slow first half. The town itself is a nice place to visit.
The club originally played at Hall Leys, before moving to Causeway Lane, which is shared with the local cricket club, with temporary railing installed on one side of the pitch at the end of the cricket season. A wooden stand was built on one side of the pitch in 1920 and was later named the Cyril Harrison Stand. Another wooden stand was built on the other side of the pitch in 1959, with seats installed in the late 1960s. Floodlights were erected in 1970 and a new terrace installed next to one of the stands prior to the FA Cup first round match against Blackburn in 1974, which attracted a then-record attendance of 5,123. More seats were installed in 1975 and that year saw a new record attendance of 5,123 set for an FA Trophy semi-final match against Burton Albion. A covered terrace was built at the Town End of the ground in the 1980s.
