What's The New Bucks Head
|What's The New Bucks Head Stadium Like?|
|A comparatively new stadium
that replaced the Bucks Head ground on the same
site. It was built in stages beginning in 2000, with
the works being completed in 2003. It is an
attractive looking ground, with good facilities,
including a hotel which is attached to the stadium.
On one side of the ground sits proudly the Sir Stephen Roberts Stand, named after a former Director and lifelong supporter. This single tiered, all seated stand, has a capacity of 2,200. It is smart looking and has executive boxes to its rear. On one side of the stand is a stadium control box, whilst on the other side of the stand are some offices, which gives the ground an enclosed feeling on this side. Both ends are covered terraces that are of similar design, both having semi circular roofs. One of these ends, the Frank Naginton Stand, is given to away supporters. On the remaining side of the ground, is an open terrace, called the Jack Bentley Terrace (after the Club's all time record goal scorer), which is dominated behind by the Club offices and study centre. To one side of this open terrace towards the away end is a small electric scoreboard.
The ground is also used by Wolverhampton Wanderers for reserve team fixtures.

|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
Away fans are mostly
housed at one end of the ground, in the covered
Frank Naginton Terrace, where up to 1,300 fans
can be housed. The entrance to the away area is
at the top of the stand, so you descend through
the concourse at the back of the stand and then
onto the rear of the terrace. On the concourse
are separate areas for serving alcohol and food.
Bitter, Lager & Cider are available and
there are TV's around, showing SKY Sports. The
bar also handily opens again at half time. If
demand requires it then a block of seating in
the Sir Stephen Roberts (West) Stand can also be

a small bar located within the Study Centre
Facility behind the Jack Bentley Terrace, however
this does not admit away fans. There is the
Dugout bar, which also shows Sky Sports, which is
located in the Whitehouse Hotel which is adjacent
to the stadium. Otherwise the nearest pubs are the
Cock Hotel and the Swan Hotel, which are around a
five minute walk away from the stadium. Go around
behind the Main Stand and you will see the hotel
bar and then turn right along the main road and
both pubs are located opposite one another at
a crossroads. The Cock Hotel is a regular in the
CAMRA Good Beer Guide and has eight hand pumps,
one of which is normally given over to cider. The
Swan Hotel opposite also features a carvery.
Otherwise alcohol is served in the away end.
