Nice ground and friendly staff. Away fans are segregated unfortunately and a one steward in particular was quite rude. Director delivered our fans a few pints though which was nice!

Very friendly and welcoming. All proceeds of the raffle were to be sent to Ukraine. Refreshments were decently priced. Parking brilliant - there were nearly 1000 there so a steward was on hand and gave us a free ticket to park at the railway station about 200 metres from the ground. Shows what can be achieved with fan ownership.
Lovely venue ample parking, large hall with dance floor. Able to cater for small too large events.

History (from Wikipedia)

Ground[edit]

The club has played at the Spencer Stadium (currently known as the Banbury Plant Hire Community Stadium for sponsorship purposes) on Station Approach since the start of the 1934–35 season, having originally played at Middleton Road.[4] When the club joined the Southern League in 1966, floodlights were installed and a new clubhouse was built to replace the railway carriages that the club had used for changing rooms.[12]

Financial problems led to the ground deteriorating, and the main stand was closed in 1985 before being demolished in 1990.[12] A new stand was built on the north-eastern touchline in the summer of 2000, but towards one end of the pitch rather than near the half-way line.[12] Both ends of the ground had uncovered terracing installed, with the other touchline having terracing along half its length.[12] The ground currently has a capacity of 6,500, of which 250 is seated and covered.[1] A new flood defence scheme was completed in 2012 to protect the stadium, the local railway station and nearby housing.[13]
