What's The Raymond McEnhill Stadium Like?
A new looking ground that has been further developed since it was first opened in 1997. The first thing that strikes you about the stadium is that it is sunken, meaning that you enter at the back of the stands and descend into it. On one side is the Main Stand, which not really a stand as such. Instead the rows of seating have been located in front of the Clubs Office building, with the roof of that structure being extended outwards somewhat to try and give some cover. The team dugouts are located in front of this area. On one side is the In-Excess covered terrace which extends around one corner of the ground and along one end. Whilst opposite is an open terrace which is allocated to away supporters. The other side of the ground, known as the 'Hop Back Side', is a strange looking affair, with two small pockets of covered seating sitting astride a large advertising hoarding for a local brewery, that also incorporates a small electric scoreboard. The two outer wings of this side of the ground comprise of open terrace. The stadium is completed with a set of four modern looking floodlights.

What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?
For most games segregation is not in force at the stadium. However, if fans need to be segregated, than a block of seating (comprising of 74 seats) and open terrace are allocated on the Hop Back side of the ground. In addition away fans are given the Partridge Way open terrace at one end of the ground near to the car park entrance. Also note that if segregation is in place then there is no access inside the ground to the Club Bar or Club catering, as a burger van is employed instead. If you are able to access the Club Catering kiosk then there is a reasonable choice on offer including; Burgers (£3.50), Cheeseburgers (£4), Hot Dogs (£3.50), Bacon Rolls (£3.50) and Chips (£2.50). If you are really hungry then you can go for the Double Cheeseburger, topped with bacon and mushrooms (£6.50).

Peter Holdridge adds; 'There was a very friendly atmosphere at the game that I attended. Even the man taking your money at the car park entrance wanted to have a chat. However the location of the ground is a bit strange. Well out of the city and in a curious mixture of business park / new housing. The Clubhouse welcomes all and also sells filled rolls. The catering kiosk sells a reasonable range of food. Stonehenge is only seven miles away so if you get there early and aren't a Philistine this will help fill your time!'

Where To Drink?
The Club does have its own Club House Bar. Which is just as well as there isn't another pub in easy walking distance as the is literally in the middle of nowhere next to a green field. The nearest pub is the Harvester, which is on the A435 going towards Salisbury opposite to the 'Old Sarum'. It is around a mile away. If you arrive early then you may want to venture into Salisbury itself where there are plenty of pubs to be found. Near to the railway station on Wilton Road is the Village Freehouse, whilst also close by on Fisherton Street, is 'Deacons'. There is also the Wetherpoon Lloyds No.1 Bar on Bridge Street called the King's Head Inn. All three of these City Centre pubs are featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

How To Get There And Where To Park

The ground is situated North of Salisbury, near to the A345. On entering Salisbury follow the ring around the city centre, until you reach the roundabout with the A345 (Castle Road). Head along the A345 towards Amesbury. You will pass the entrance to Old Sarum on your left and a Harvester on your right. At the next roundabout turn right along Portway and at the mini roundabout bear left. Take the next left into Partridge Way. The entrance to the ground is at the bottom of this road. There is a large car park at the ground, which costs £2 per vehicle, although on my visit I had to try hard to avoid all the pot holes!

By Train
Salisbury station is located just under three miles away from the stadium. It is served by trains from London Waterloo & Bristol Temple Meads. Alternatively you can take a Number 8 Bus (Destination Andover) from the Bus Station on Endless Street in the City Centre. Just ask the driver to drop you off by the Park & Ride as you are going to the Football. You can download a timetable from the Bus CMS website (PDF). It is then around a 10 minute walk to the ground. Alternatively a taxi from the railway station to the ground will cost about £10.

Remember if travelling by train then you can normally save on the cost of fares by booking in advance. Visit the thetrainline website to see how much you can save.
