Pleasant little stadium with excellent facilities for this level. Very modern Clubhouse, plenty of cover and seating large car park. Very friendly people. Ground is a bit tucked away but my Satnav found the way.

We use it for the all-weather pitches to practice . Awesome. Parking, but at busy times, it's tight.

As a disabled person I found this ground lacking. The seated stand was no accessible to me due to the hight of the steps. There was a seated stand behind one goal but no.accessible toilet near. The Car park stewards were very good finding me a,good parking space. Ground also had many slopes and steps which were difficult for me to navigate.

Nice ground and facilities. Just odd having two matches on overlapping times that increased competition for parking spaces

History (from Wikipedia)


The club initially played at Young's Meadow, before relocating to Crowley Park.[1] In 1996 they moved to a new ground, buying the site after former player Arthur Rodwell died and left the club money, which was used together with a grant from the National Lottery.[1] The new ground was named Bloomfields after former player and clubman Derrick Bloomfield.[1]

A new record attendance of 750 was set for a 
Suffolk Premier Cup match against Ipswich Town reserves during the 2006–07 season. This was beaten when a crowd of 1,375 watched the FA Vase semi-final against Kirkham & Wesham in 2008. Another new record was set on 26 October 2013 when 1,748 saw the club play Cambridge United in an FA Cup fourth qualifying round game.[2]

In 2018 a 3G pitch with a 50-seat stand and new changing rooms were installed within the Bloomfields complex, which is used by the reserve team.

Best Indian around. Food always superb. Nice to sit down and be waited on. Takeaways sometimes take a time but they are worth the wait. Read More
