Our Impressions of Bescot Stadium

Away fans are housed in the William Sharp Stand, an all seated stand behind the goal which holds just under 2,000. The ground is a small ground (9500 capacity) with stanchions giving a restricted view all around the ground.

There are corporate facilities available for away fans contact the club Secretary for further details.

Plans are in operation to convert the home end to all seater via a new two tier cantilever stand ? work has not started nor at the time of writing has any date been stated for commencement.

For season 2002-2003, Mel says 'work has commenced on Bescot Stadium in replacing the 'home' Gilbert Allsopp stand with a new Cantilevered construction so the home fans will be housed in what was the away end (William Sharpe Stand). The visiting supporters will be housed in the Banks 's family stand but will be limited to around 600 visitors'.
