|What's The Ground Like?|
On one side of the
ground, is the relatively new looking Main Stand.
This small all seated, covered stand, runs for about
half the length of the pitch and straddles the half
way line. It has a couple of floodlights perched on
its roof. Opposite to this stand the side of the
ground is unused for spectators and just has the
team dugouts and a row of small floodlights. At the
Tryst Road End of the ground is good sized terrace,
that recently has had a roof put on it, giving much
needed shelter for the standing fans. On one side of
this terrace can be seen a Social Club which is
owned by the Club. The opposite East End of the
ground is again unused for spectators. During the
Summer of 2007 a new synthetic playing surface was
installed at the stadium.
|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
Generally there is no segregation of fans for league games. If segregation needs to be enforced, then away fans are predominantly housed in the covered Tryst Road terrace which is allocated specifically to them, whilst some seats are also allocated in the Main Stand. Normally a friendly welcome awaits the visiting supporter and I experienced no problems on my visit.
|Where To Drink?|
|There is a Social Club on one corner of the Tryst Road terrace and a small bar under the Main Stand. Both welcome away supporters, although on occasions the Social Club may charge a small entrance fee, for non members. There are a couple of bars to be found in the nearby town centre (five minutes walk). Paul O'Shea adds; 'Right by Larbert Railway Station is the Station Hotel, which is featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. On my visit they had some interesting beers from small Scottish microbreweries.'|

Remember also to ignore the 'football
traffic' signs around the area, as if you follow
them you will eventually end up at Falkirks' ground.
|The nearest train station is Larbert, which is just under a mile away from the ground. As you come out of the station, bear left down the main (King Street) road in front of the station. Continue down Kings Road and you will reach the ground on the left.|
