What's The Ground Like?

It is a long time since I have visited a ground with such charm and character as Glebe Park. The Main Stand is overlooked by a church spire, whilst opposite a tall, well tended hedge borders the entire length of the open side. Apparently Glebe Park, is the only ground in Europe with a hedge surrounding its perimeter. This side has a small open terrace only a couple of steps high and there are a number of floodlight pylons running down the front of it. The Main Stand is a small all seated covered stand, which straddles the half way line. You would think at first glance that this was quite an old stand, especially as it has a floodlight protruding from its roof, but in actual fact it was built in 1981 and replaced a similar looking wooden stand. At one end is the Cemetery End terrace, which is covered and has a number of supporting pillars. Opposite, is the latest addition to the ground, the smart looking Trinity Road Stand. Built in the early 1990's, it is a covered all seated stand, which seats nearly 1,000 spectators. It is unusual, in being setback some distance from the pitch and sits upon a raised bank.

What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?
The ground is a pleasure to visit and a friendly welcome awaits most visitors. The ground is maintained to a high standard and the staff and fans have real pride in their club. If you get the chance, make your way to the rear of the Cemetery Terrace, where in true Hollywood style, supporters have been invited to have individual plaques with their names on, set in concrete. Plus the supporters have also been allowed to place their hand prints in the concrete, giving it that Hollywood look. Supporters are not normally segregated for games and both sets of fans tend to try and out sing one another in the Cemetery End. If fans are to be segregated, say for a big cup game, then away fans will normally find that the Trinity Road Stand has been allocated to them. Neil Stapleton adds; 'If you get chance, sample the soup on sale inside the ground, it is excellent'.

Where To Drink?
Calum MacLennan informs me; 'There is the Stables Bar which is good for a pre-match pint. This is only a five minute walk away from the ground. As you come out of the ground entrance, turn left and go down to the roundabout, passing the Ashvale Fish & Chip shop on the left. Go straight across the roundabout and at McConnachys Tyre Centre turn right and the pub is just there'. Otherwise there is the Springfield which is a similar distance away. As you come out of the ground again turn left, and at the roundabout turn right, then right again into Cookston Road. The Springfield can be seen up on the right.

How To Get There By Car & Where To Park

From the the A90 take the B966 towards Brechin (if coming from the South, ignore the first Brechin turn off on the A90, the A935, and continue Northwards). Continue along the B966 and you will come to the ground on your left. The entrance is quite small between some houses and is indicated by a small Glebe Park sign. There is a small free car park at the ground which holds around fifty vehicles, otherwise street parking.

By Train
There is no train station in Brechin itself. The nearest station is in Montrose which is eight miles away. You can either then take a taxi to the ground, or catch a bus to Brechin. John Aitken from the Wanderers Way Annual adds; 'From Montrose take the Number 30 Stagecoach from Lower Hall Street which is a two minute walk from Montrose Railway station to Trinity Road Brechin'.
