  • Not the biggest stadium but one of the most friendly. People here are passionate about their football and hopefully the team will soon be back where they belong in the premier league. Excellent facilities for corporate functions and events.
  • Went to scatter my Dad's ashes. We were taken through the stadium, past all the dressing rooms, managers office & press room. We came through the players tunnel to "Dance Of The Knights" which was extra special as we had also played it at my Dad's funeral. The steward who was guiding us, took us to the pitch where a hole had been dug, he explained how much of the ashes to put in and then left us alone while we did it. Once we were ready to leave he came back to escorts us and encouraged us to take some photos of my young nephew in the managers seat. We were made to feel very special and my Dad will never miss a home game.
  • Turnstiles not working. Too many people crushed into one area. Police either too proactive, or ,even worse, at times too laid back.
  • An excelent visit. Made all the better by being escorted by Mr. Jim Montgomery.
  • It was cool but maybe add a different dessert for weddings
