|What's The Ground Like?|
The ground is a
largely open one. On one side is the smart looking
Main Stand. This small covered stand is all seated
as is five rows high and is fairly new looking. It
straddles the halfway line on the West side of the
ground. The rest of the stadium is mostly
comprised of uncovered hard standing areas. The team
dugouts are located opposite the Main Stand on the
East Side, where there is some uncovered terrace
which is only a few steps high. The North End of the
ground which has been dubbed the Astro end, after
the Astroturf training pitch behind, has been
designated for away supporters, if segregation is
required. The pitch slopes down from this area
towards the South (Club house) end of the ground.

|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
Dominic Jack a visiting Clyde fan informs me; 'I was very impressed with how welcoming the club was to visiting fans. The social club was very good and the pies were superb, one of the best that I have had for a long time. Overall it was very worth the trip down, despite the scoreline!'
|Where To Drink?|
|The Football Club would love visitors to drink in the clubhouse, but there are also plenty of bars half a mile down the hill, on Annan’s High Street. on which you will find the Bluebell Inn. This old coaching in situated by the River Annan is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Also just off the High Street in Lady Street, located in the Corner House Hotel, is 'The Shed' bar which is popular with football fans and has SKY Sports. If you’re looking for something to eat, then the Café Royal is recommended either for eat-in or as a takeaway chippy.|
|How To Get There By Car & Where To Park|
From the North:
There is not a lot of car parking
available at the ground; however, the campsite next
door appears to be geared up to help out; offering
parking for a fee of £1.
Annan station is located on the Carlisle to Dumfries line. It is about a twenty minute walk from the ground. Leave the station heading north along St. John’s Road, follow on into Bank Street, and cross the High Street to go up Lady Street at the traffic lights. This then becomes North Street. The ground is on the left after half a mile, after the athletics stadium.
