Our Impressions of John Roberts Ground
Cherrywood Road, freshly renamed the Aimita Stadium after the Club's main sponsor, has a capacity of 4,900 (reduced for segregated games), including covered terraces for 1,000 and 640 seats.
Few matches are segregated. Should segregation be required, the Moor Road End terracing is allocated to visiting supporters. This terracing is exposed to the elements so we suggest that you come armed with a sou' weter and wellies if the forecast is bad. The Moor Road End turnstiles are to the left of the main stand.
