What are the grounds like?
A relatively new stadium that was opened in 2005. On one side is the large Dane Bank covered terrace. Interestingly it was transported piece by piece from the Club抯 old Drill Field Ground and erected at the new stadium. Opposite is the tidy looking Victoria Stand. This all seated covered stand runs for around half the length of the pitch and sits astride the half way line. Running across the back of the stand is a glass fronted area which includes some corporate hospitality areas. Both ends are small open terraces. The ground has a set of four modern looking floodlights. Away fans are mostly housed in the West Terrace at one end of the ground, with some seats also being made available in the Victoria Stand.
What is it like for visiting supporters?
The facilities at the stadium are very good and no expense has been spared on the Victoria (Main) Stand. Its not very often that you will come across an Italian Restaurant and a Piano Bar at a football ground but you will here! Its a pity that both ends are open, but I guess this will be addressed at a later stage. The stadium is also located a little bit in the ‘middle of nowhere’ not making for a great day out in terms of local pubs etc.. However make sure you look for the Robin Reliant car parked on one side of the Main Stand. At least someone does have a sense of humour at the Club!
Where to drink?
Alcohol can be purchased inside the stadium, otherwise there is the Black Greyhound pub which is located about a half a mile away from the ground.
How to get there and where to park?
Leave the M6 at J19 and take the A556 towards Northwich. After three miles, turn right onto the A559 again towards Northwich. Then at the traffic lights just by the Ho King Chinese take away, turn right in the direction of Warrington. Then turn left at the crossroads by the Black Greyhound public house. Follow the road until the Renault Garage (Lookers), on the left, turn left into Wincham Avenue. The ground is at the bottom of the road on the right. There is a large car park at the stadium
Northwich station is located two miles away from the ground. It is served by trains from Manchester Piccadilly.
