I think Solar Campus is not far from Ashville (West Cheshire).


That's correct. It's on Leasowe Road, less than a mile west of Ashville. The club has developed it as its new training centre.

I am hearing there may be a change in policy on access to Colchester's Florence Park this season. Will update if and when there's something official.

Tranmere Rovers website confirms all home Academy U18 fixtures for the 2017/18 season will be played at Solar Campus.


Details to assist those thinking of going :-


Solar Campus
235 Leasowe Road,
Wallasey
CH45 8RE


By Car - Junction 1 M53. Head North on A554, take the first exit, turn left on to Leasowe Road (A551) and 1st Left into the Campus. Journey from M53 probably 2 minutes or less.


By Train - 10 minute walk from Wallasey Village station. Turn right when leaving the station and walk along A551. Ground on left.

Swindon Town and Forest Green Rovers FCs.

I am now going to be at Malmesbury Vics on Saturday for the Western League but see that both FGR and Swindon are at home in the Football League Youth Alliance.
Not holding my breath for an answer from either so can anyone confirm definitely where they both play youth games now?
There was rumours that FGR were playing at a park in Chippenham, denied by a member of staff who I know. FGR website still has them playing ion the SWCL which is not a good sign to be honest and Swindon doesn't mention fixtures.

To the best of my knowledge Swindon kiddies are at Stanley Park in Chippenham and FGR still at the Royal Agricultural University near Cirencester.

Oxford United are at the moment still at Abingdon United according to a recent Tweet, but I presume they will move to Oxford City at some point. The ladies team have and fans forums are now held at Court Place Farm.

Altrincham Youth are expected to move (apart from FA Youth Cup games which will be played at the main stadium) from the former Linotype ground at Clay Lane to the Manchester Health Academy on Moor Lane, Wythenshawe (M23 9BP) but this won't be until October or so.
In the mean time, the first home fixture is being played at Unicorn Athletic in Flixton, but I wouldn't attend any game without checking.

Predictably, no reply from Forest Green or Swindon meaning three e-mails to League clubs have been ignored so far, with Argyle.
Thanks to this forum I chose Swindon Town v Newport County which was indeed at Stanley Park, Chippenham.
This is a stunning facility spread over many manicured acreas a few miles out of Chippenham on the Calne Road.
Struggled for coffee and grub there but the football made up for it as Swindon have what looks like a fine side.

From the FGR Academy Twitter feed they are still at the Agricultural College. A 30 second clip of a recent game is on it and it looks like all are welcome to watch.

Last Tuesday's Central League game between FGR and Plymouth Argyle was played at Stanley Park. 1.00pm kick off.
Unusually for Argyle they gave notice of the venue on their website the previous evening. A friend of mine went, and told me it was played on a pitch where there was some cover for spectators.

When I went to Stanley Park the pitch next to the 3G had a large dug out on it and I was told that was the one used in the Wiltshire League by FC Chippenham Youth at that time in dry weather and was in theory the main pitch. When it was wet they transferred over to the 3G which had uncovered railed spectator accommodation down the near side. They have since left the Wiltshire League.

Can hardly be blamed if clubs change venues but £9 seems ridiculously steep.

More info. regarding Stanley Park on the WDYG thread for September 9th. following my visit there to see Swindon Town U-18's. Certainly no access problems, but with about 12 pitches (grass/3G) available it's as well to check carefully in the dressing-room building on which pitch your chosen game is being played.

I was there in 2009 and it was a little tricky getting in with stewards on the gate asking difficult questions. Told them I'd come from Cardiff to see that club's U-18's and I was admitted. Hopefully, someone who's been there much more recently will update this post!

I attended a weekday afternoon match there last season. In the morning I rang the contact on my old directory but there was no answer. No stewards around when I arrived but 15 minutes into the game a guy wuth a clipboard came round checking the names of the spectators. I explained I had phoned the club that morning naming the person who was in the directory but failed to mention they hadn't answered the phone. He added my name to the list and walked away.
Can't confirm if you will be allowed in but might be worth a try.

Does anyone know for sure where Swindon Town U18 v Bristol Rovers U18 is being played on Saturday morning?
Emailed both clubs but not had a response yet.
Rovers are usually good but not sure if Swindon are still at Stanley Park.
