stevenatp's review of Abbey Stadium

Enjoyable evening at Abbey Hey. Facilities are what you would expect at this level but the ground is in a tidy shape. No programme issued for the friendly I went to, but advised at the gate that they do produce one for league games.


10 minute walk from Ryder Brow railway station which is approx a 10 minute journey from Manchester Piccadilly. Seemed to be plenty of parking for this level.


Hard/concrete standing all around the ground. Some covered bench seating and standing area on the halfway line.

Food & Drink

Warm welcome in the club house. This is above the changing rooms so provides a nice view of the pitch. Food was limited to some tasty hot pies and crisps. A pint of Boddingtons was a reasonable £2.60 with lager and soft drinks also available.
I didn't spot any pubs on the walk up to the ground, but there was a newsagent / off licence.


A crowd of 80 to 100 for a pre season game did not generate much of an buzz but was a friendly enough atmosphere.
