Lovely little club with local red cat brewery beer in the bar when I went recently. Pitch a little bumpy but not in bad condition. Main stand could be steeper and nearer pitch. Parking surprisingly free. Another visit today confirms all of the above and an entertaining 5-1 win for the home side confirming their playoff place.
Ground The club plays its home matches at The Charters Community Stadium, Hillier Way, Abbotts Barton, Winchester SO23 7SR.
The City Ground has a 180-seater stand with floodlights, permanent pitch boards, advertising boards, terraces, car parking and turnstiles for entering the ground. Within the ground there is a clubhouse and a refreshments kiosk selling hot and cold food and drinks. The ground has a total capacity of 4500. A small terraced area (called the 'Bus Shelter') behind one goal is the home of the 'Bus Shelter Band'. A new stand was built behind the other goal during the close season of 2007-08 by members of the bus shelter band but this was dismantled 3 years later to allow for a training pitch. A new club shop was opened in 2006-07 next to the main seated stand selling club merchandise and other football related memorabilia. During the summer of 2014 a new stand was built behind the dug-outs and a fence was erected around 2 sides of the pitch separating the ground from the car park.
