Our Impressions of Nene Park

Nene park is one of the best grounds within the Third Division. Building started during 1992 and continued through the 90's, so that today Nene park is a fully covered, mainly seated arena that offers excellent facilities to all supporters.

Away fans are normally allocated approx 1000 tickets, and are located in the Airwair Stand (behind a goal). This stand is normally shared with home fans, but if one of the larger teams is in town, then the whole Airwair Stand is allocated to traveling supporters. Away fans should enter the ground via through turnstiles R, S or T. Underneath the Away end there is a bar with a seated area.
Strikers Bar is located within the South Stand, but this is members only.
