BMH's review of The Mike Riding Ground

The final NWCFL Premier ground visited this season - 22/22 and it didn't disappoint.
A long list of postponements meant both teams had to play a 'double head' weekend, Longridge 2 homes 2 defeats and FCIOM 2 aways and 2 wins!
Perhaps the Sunday fixture enabled more to attend 374 (bolstered by 50/60 from IoM) compared to 174 the day before. A cold strong wind on a bright sunny day afforded good views of the Lancashire countryside.


FCIOM supporters coach took the M6 so far then a straightforward drive from there to the ground.


Similar to Lower Breck yesterday, only 3 sides available to spectators.
Standing only behind one goal, were kids were able to play their own games n the large grassed area.
A large covered standing area behind the other goal, with uncovered standing also.
Then the Clubhouse side - two covered stands (seating / standing?? take your pick) with a very good and busy clubhouse


Very good overall.

Food & Drink

Very good. FCIOM supporters also visited the Alston pub before the game, 100 yards away, which was also very good.


No Police and excellent stewards
