The main stand seats 1,040 fans comfortably, with every fan having a good view of the whole playing area. There is terrace standing but this is only made available on special occasions when the main stand is full.

As a general rule we do not segregate Home and Away supporters and we always encourage and foster a friendly atmosphere where fans are happy to sit together and families feel comfortable.

Wheelchair access is available in the main stand.

The price for entry during the 2023 season  is: £15 (Adult), £10 (Concession)

‘Early Bird’ offers are often available on Eventbrite – Keep an eye out for these. Tickets purchased in advance can be printed and brought to the ticket office. Alternatively, these can be shown on your mobile device.
