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.
I was at Banbury to support Redditch United. Top quality side and well backed by a great vocal support, and friendly staff. A fantastic day for us as we won 2 v 1 and inflicted a first home defeat on the champions elect. I just want to wish Banbury United all the very best and I am sure you will be officially crowned champions very soon, as without doubt the best side in the league but today was our day. All the very best for the remainder of the season and in the years ahead. Great club.
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. 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. Financial problems led to the ground deteriorating, and the main stand was closed in 1985 before being demolished in 1990. 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. Both ends of the ground had uncovered terracing installed, with the other touchline having terracing along half its length. The ground currently has a capacity of 6,500, of which 250 is seated and covered. A new flood defence scheme was completed in 2012 to protect the stadium, the local railway station and nearby housing.
