Our Impressions of Emerald Park

The pitch is surrounded on three sides by stands.? All three stands are seated on the front three rows with standing room behind.? On the fourth side of the ground where the dug outs are, you will find the changing rooms tucked into the far corner.? Up from them is a type of 'directors box'. The canteen is on this side as well as the Ladies and Gents toilets. Behind the canteen is the bar with TV and Pool table and here you will also find toilets.

Behind the ground is the Magdalen Playing Field where local Borough League games are played.? There is also a kiddies playground in the furthest corner, a skateboard park and BMX track.
