Went to watch a pre-season friendly match Tiverton Town vs Exeter City. Stadium very close to A361 and parking easy nearby. Food, drink and toilet facilities need improvement. Takes ages to get something
We really enjoyed our day here. We arrived early to watch the early kickoffs on Sky - the bar area has been refurbished. Staff were welcoming and there was plenty of room to sit and multiple screens to watch.
Going into the game, we purchased a shirt from the store. One thing I would advise (as I didn't do it) is to bring cash with you. Although contactless payments are available, there are quite a few things which do not take cards - the club shop, one of the turnstiles, carparking (£1), the can and tea cabin - so take some cash with you.
Food was great too and the general atmosphere around the whole club/ground was family friendly.
Difficult day to play football due to the lack of rain.Very dry bumpy pitch.No blame on Tivvy just the weather.Great club bar and an excellent pint of Tribute.Good day out and met some very nice people.
Stadium The club currently play at The Ian Moorcroft Stadium, Ladysmead, Bolham Road, Tiverton, Devon, EX16 6SG.
Opened in 1946, the ground has a capacity of 3,500, of which 520 is seated. As Tiverton Athletic, the club played its home games at the Athletic Ground, now known as Amory Park. The ground boasted a huge wooden pavilion with a seated veranda, which was quite extravagant for a non-league club in the 1910s. In 1921, Athletic were effectively evicted from their ground and moved to a local rugby pitch, Elm Field (aka "The Elms"), with the reformed rugby club taking their place at their old ground. The Elms housed a wooden 150-seat stand on one side, with grass banks behind the goals being the only other spectator zones.
The Elms was virtually destroyed during World War II, meaning the club had to move, eventually relocating to Ladysmead. The club's record attendance of 3,000 came in the FA Cup first round, against Leyton Orient on 12 November 1994.
