johnwickenden's review of Ladysmead

I visited on 16th September to see Tivvy take on Basingstoke Town in the Southern League Premier. It was a game wihich Tivvy ultimately just won and which saw them take over as League leaders.
Bear in mind that (this season) the majority of the teams in this league come from the Oxon, Northants area so Tivvy is a long trip west for most. In fact the nearest team is Dorchester, some 60 miles away and the longest trip is to Kings Lynn, 260 miles away.

Location

Ladysmead is in Bolham Road, just to the north of the town centre. It's an easy walk to the pubs and places to eat and there is a reasonably large car park on site, so in that respect Tivvy's ground is in a great location. Public transport wise the nearest Station is Tiverton Parkway which is 7 miles away next to the M5 and buses to and from the town are hourly (which is pretty crap I'm afraid). If you're going, go by car!

View

The ground has cover on all four sides and we are not talking the little 'bus stop' type stands. Both ends have full length covers over the terrace. The clubhouse side is covered for over half the length of the pitch and the main stand (all seated) runs the full length. There are one or two stanchions getting in the way if you choose to sit, but overall the view is good

Facilities

Toilets in the clubhouse and at either end of the main stand. There is a club shop but, unfortunately it was closed on this occassion due to lack of staff. It is located adjacent to the main stand.

Food & Drink

There is a concessions stand located next to the club shop but again it was closed so I have no idea on quality and price. Drinks (alcoholic and hot/cold) were being served in the clubhouse bar

Police & Stewards

Unobtrusive

Atmosphere

Quite good. The crowd was 220 (Tivvy average about 250) and the Tivvy Ultras sang for most of the game.
