Our Impressions of Clipbush Park
This is a typical Jewson premier ground. The pitch was excellent, and the ground was very neat & tidy. Behind each goal there is a covered area, for those who would like to stand, with each area offering shelter for about 300 fans. Along the far side of the pitch, there is a seated stand, that holds around 350 supporters. Within this stand, there are also facilities for 3 disabled supporters and a helper. The other side of the pitch, offers the changing rooms, the club house, and the toilets. All of these 'buildings' are permanent portacabins, but on saying that, the facilities are quite good. The club house has a TV for those all important half time scores, and the beer was very popular!
Overall, this is a tidy ground, and on a nice summers evening, was well worth the visit

Local Area around Clipbush Park
There is a very large car park at the ground. On the day we visited, there was the largest crowd in the history of the ground, and there were still spaces! For standing league games, there is not problems.
There is a Safeway supermarket location on the same roundabout as the entrance to the ground. This had a variety of cash machines, and also has a good cheap cafe for tea, coffee, and that ever essential all day brunch!
