15/4/22 Tonbridge Angels 0-1 Slough Town, National League South. Adult £15, Programme £3, Pin badge £3. An instant favourite non league ground. This was my first visit. The ground is in a complex so there is plenty of parking. The welcome from the Tonbridge volunteers was exemplary. A steward greeted us and told us where all the important things were such as the bars/toilets/food huts and was happy to chat about how the season was going. The ground itself has plenty of room. There are big terrace steps behind each goal which are covered. There is a covered seated stand running the length of one side and opposite that it’s all standing, not terraced and open to the elements. There is a small stand that is for the press and media. I would highly recommend a visit. They are friendly and very welcoming and I look forward to visiting again next season.

Got to give it five stars, it's my team. Overall a friendly club, with reasonable facilities. Crowds of a thousand plus make for a good atmosphere.

Very nice ground, very reasonable prices on food and drink. Loads of parking to. The ground has got very good potential to. Just a shame they charge £1 extra to sit in the main stand. Looking forward to returning in March.

Nice welcoming place. Great burger and pint. The home team always turns up in the first half. The second half is always interesting this season.

History (from Wikipedia)

The Longmead Stadium was built in 1980 by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council after they had decided to redevelop Tonbridge Angels' Angel Ground in 1977 into a shopping centre.[1] Tonbridge Angels were against the plans to evict them and demolish the Angel Ground and so took out a legal challenge against the plans. Three years later, the High Court ruled in favour of the borough council however, the council offered Tonbridge Angels the Longmead Stadium as replacement compensation after a series of negotiations.[2][3] One of the stands at the Longmead Stadium was named "The Jack Maddams Stand" after a former Tonbridge Angels striker who had died.[4] In 2008, the Longmead Stadium hosted a charity match between an Alan Rodgers select XI and an All stars team that was captained by former Tottenham Hotspur player, Gary Stevens as well as Andy Townsend and Jason Cundy.[5]
