Our Impressions of Moat Ground
Very compact ground, the average attendance is around the 250 - 350 mark. Pitch slopes (very much like the old Yeovil slope!) from one goal to the other, but unlike many non league grounds, there is ample cover should the elements decide to turn!

Local Area around Moat Ground
Car Parking is very limited outside the ground. There is a small car park outside the main entrance which can hold approx 50 cars - otherwise it is street parking which is difficult due to the one way system in operation around the ground and surrounding areas.
