OVERVIEW OF WHADDON ROAD:
Located in the Cotswolds, parts of the ground have gradually been developed over recent years in line with the Club’s fortunes – the most recent being the Hazelwood Stand, an all seated area behind a goal. The opposite end is the Liberty and Mutual Insurance Stand covered standing area for the home fans.
The In2Print Stand, opened in 2001, holds 2,034, all seated and runs along the side.
The Jeff Man Stand completes the ground – a small structure, spanning the half way line, leaving standing areas to each side of it.
WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED:
.About 1,100 away supporters can be housed in the Hazelwood Stand behind the goal, which has good views, facilities and leg room!
BEST PLACE TO EAT:
There is an excellent chippy near the ground. Looking at the ground from Whaddon Road go about 200 yards to the right along Whaddon Road; it is on the left.
Alternatively the food inside the ground is highly recommended, with burgers (including a half pounder with cheese) hot dogs, pies (including Pukka Pies) and bacon baps!
A club called The Robins Nest is right next to the ground and allows in some away supporters for a small fee. The Fox and The Greyhound are two other pubs near the ground, mainly used by the home support. The away fans are probably better heading for the Sudeley Arms or The Conservatory on Prestbury Road about 10 minutes walk away. Turn right out of the Club Car Park then left at the end of the road into Prestbury Road. Go straight over the roundabout and the Sudeley Arms is on your left, the Conservatory further up on the right.
