Nice little ground, modern seated viewing area with a very nice social club built in to it, had a club shop, got a pin badge but only digital programs, good food from the food trailer, but very expensive. This ground is very open to the weather, so if your visiting in winter make sure you wear warm clothing.

We recently held a funeral wake at the Nantwich Football function room and Miles was extremely helpful with our organising due to it being over the Christmas and new year period. Around 150 people attended and the food which was overseen by Karen and prepared by Jane and her staff from the tea rooms was excellent, many people commented on how good the spread was. The room was well laid out and the bar staff were friendly and efficient. Thank you to everyone.

Very friendly. Visited as part of away supporters and was able to sit with the Nantwich Town fans no problem. Lovely chips and gravy and a nice atmosphere all round. Brilliant parking facilities.

History (from Wikipedia)


The club plays at the Optimum Pay Stadium at Kingsley Fields. The ground cost £4 million, and was opened in 2007 before the start of the 2007–08 season; previously the club had played at Jackson Avenue.

Bad weather delayed the opening of the ground, with Nantwich having to play the majority of their pre-season games away from home. The first match at the Weaver Stadium took place on 7 August 2007, a friendly against League One side Port Vale that ended 6–3 to the League side. Port Vale's Ross Davidson scored the first goal at the ground after three minutes; Glyn Blackhurst became the first Nantwich Town player to score. The ground was officially opened before Nantwich's match on 10 October 2007 by Sir Trevor Brooking. Moving to the new stadium coupled with success on the pitch helped increase Nantwich's attendances from an average of 118 in 2005–06 to averaging 664 in 2008–09.

Optimum Pay Group Main Stand[edit]
The Optimum Pay Group Main Stand is the main stand at the Weaver Stadium and is situated to the south of the pitch. It seats around 300 people. It also contains bar facilities and a snack bar.

Whitby Morrison Ice Cream Vans Stand[edit]
The Whitby Morrison Ice Cream Vans Stand is a low terrace situated to the north of the pitch at the Weaver Stadium. It can hold around 295 standing supporters. It is home to the more vocal of the Dabbers' support.

At present both ends of the ground are flat and undeveloped.
