A nice 3G pitch, clubhouse was small, plenty of parking. Not the easiest pitch to get to, and doesn’t seem like a nice area. The crowd seemed a bit rough and fed up, and it seemed to be connected directly to residential properties. The whole club could do with a face lift besides the actual pitch itself. The shop was good, and the ticket sales people were thoroughly informative and knew a lot about the club. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere wasn’t great though, and the facilities and toilets were poor.
Nice friendly atmosphere good facilities good for children. No stress way to pass an afternoon with the kids. Good standard of football without the agro.

Love it here. I go as a supporter of the mighty Lambs. You are made to feel welcome. People there are very friendly. Drinks prices are very reasonable.

History (from Wikipedia)

The Lamb Ground is a football stadium in the district of Kettlebrook, in TamworthStaffordshireEngland and the home of Tamworth F.C. It is approximately half a mile south of Tamworth railway station.

History[edit]

Tamworth spent their first year as a football team at Jolly Sailor ground before making the short move across the River Tame to start the 1934/35 season in the Birmingham Combination at the Lamb Ground. Tamworth have continued to play at the same site ever since, steadily improving the facilities as the Lambs progressed up the non-league football pyramid.

The ground was named after the "Lamb Inn", which stood for many years at the entrance to what is now the ground's car park. The first known use of the site was as a pig farm at the turn of the 19th century. Before 
Tamworth arrived at the Lamb Ground it is believed that Kettlebrook Oakfield F.C. used the ground. In those early days, players had to change in the Lamb Inn and run down to the pitch, but facilities have been slowly built up to include changing rooms and a clubhouse, as well as 'cover' and seating for spectators.

In 1969 the Lamb Ground acquired its floodlights from 
Scarborough and all bar one of the original pylons are still in place to date, one having been removed to make way for the construction of the current Main Stand in 1997. Gillingham were invited to play a friendly fixture to mark the official switch-on of the floodlights owing to the Gills being Tamworth's first Football League opposition in the FA Cup.

The Main Stand holds 518 while the terraced "Shed" is home to the "Shed Choir" which sometimes provide the team with vocal support. Planning permission has been sought for a new 1,800 seater stand incorporating VIP boxes to take the place of the current Main Stand, its thought
[by whom?] the current Main Stand would then be moved to the Castle End of the stadium.
