ajimofalltrades' review of The Laithwaite Community Stadium

I enjoyed my trip to the Kingfield stadium which is easy to get to and offers a comfortable match experience without any particular frills. It's an interesting ground to look at with one newish and decent stand offset by a couple of open terraces and a couple of rusty and rotting stands that look like old railways sheds.

It's a nice friendly and welcoming place with reasonable facilities and views though the stadium creates very little in the way of atmosphere.

Location

I usually travel to matches by train and there are plenty of trains to Woking from London making this quite a good place to get to. The ground is only a 20 minute walk from the station. As I was on crutches at the time I decided to get the bus which was fine. We did have to wait a bit longer for the bus back and the journey itself took longer than the walk might have done owing to the traffic.

View

We took our seats behind the goal in the newest of the stands in the ground. I don't prefer a behind the goal view but as it goes I thought the view of the game was very good with a good vista of the whole pitch sat a bit further back. The seats are fairly comfortable though there isn't much legroom and the rather large man in front of me was making it feel particularly cramped. There is the option of view of the pitch down the flank and at the halfway line, but as an away fan that was standing only.

Facilities

The toilet facilities were in an a very old wooden portacabin that was rotting. There was a very narrow entrance that became cramped with people coming in and out and it was very squeezed inside. The facilities did not seem to be the cleanest and there was no running hot water.

There is no real covered area for fans on the terraces to retreat to in the event that the weather is wet.

Food & Drink

I thought that there was a good range of food available, including chips, which seems to be popular with fans, though no veggie burgers. The queues were quite negligible and the prices were reasonable.

Police & Stewards

Didn't really notice any police or stewards which I guess is a good thing. The staff at Woking FC were all very nice and helpful.

Atmosphere

The ground is not one of the best for atmosphere. The game I was at was quite well attended, with about a half capacity stadium but the I can hardly remember any noise or chants being made by the home supporters.

The 1000 or so away supporters were making some noise from the terracing at the side but being quite an open and exposed stand it did not seem to carry over the rest of the ground so well.
