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 the main stand is available.

The price for 2020 entry 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.

The Ticket Office is open at least one hour before kick-off and is located just by the portacabin in the car park. Tickets can also be purchased in advance by contacing the club’s offices or by visiting the Skolars online ticket office, which you’ll find on this website.
