No problems when I went last season, plenty of club officials about who can tell you where to go as itís a bit of a maze. If youíre coming by car you might need to email ahead as there was a bloke on the gate last time. Easy enough by public transport though.

Not a very positive reply. Suggested it no U18 games are open to public. Should i just go and see? Thought about asking Whitley Bay my non league team if they would let me go as a scout for them?

For me it would depend how far away it was; if it's not too far away I'd suggest going along and finding out for yourself. You never know, you might meet someone there that can get you in and be prepared to help again in the future. If you don't go along you'll never know!

Hmm, I was able to just walk in last time. I agree with BDAís post in that you might as well try if itís not too much of a pain to get to/back.

Iíd say try it, but decide first if itís worth the risk and have a plan B just in case (North East Christian Fellowship League games at 10.30am if youíre desparate). There were no problems at all when I went to Sunderland, but that as a few years ago.

I had no issues whatsoever when I attended last season for the match against Newcastle. I was stopped at the barrier but only because the car park was full. I was directed to an overflow car park and walked in from there. Unless they have tightend up this season, should be no problem.

I got in no bother at all. There is actually access to the pitches via a public foot path so you donít need to go through the academy. Good game though Everton were much better than the mackems. I enjoyed the fact you could go up on a bank to watch.

Has anyone been to Charlton's training ground this season? Am I going to be able to get in with my Red Card? Or is such a card now out of date? Thanks.

Stanley Park Sports Ground in Chippenham. Stanley Park has a Facebook account which usually posts the weekendís pitch allocations on a Thursday or Friday.

It can get quite busy there Tim and whilst the complex is quite large, it fills up quickly especially when the junior pitches are all occupied. I would suggest getting there at least 40-50 minutes before the senior teams kick off to park down near the club house.
Plus point is that each STFC game I've watched there this year, the U-16's also play on the adjacent pitch, so you have a choice.



2018-19 Games: 166 Goals: 611 GPG: 3.68 New Grounds: 96
2019-20 Games: 93 Goals: 366 GPG: 3.94 New Grounds: 51

Thanks to all for the help. Won't be rushing there as I've already done the Premier pitch and wondered if Swindon Youth used the 3G, which would have been handy for a wet day...

I've only seen them once on the 3G and that was against Pompey on a midweek fixture that had been previously postponed from a Saturday.

Attended Mansfield v Peterborough today in the central league cup. (Report on WDYG)> Match played at the new Mansfield town FC academy, details as follows :-


The RH Academy,
Woburn Lane,
NG19 7RT


Towards the end of Woburn Lane on the right, which is a cul de sac. Car parking available inside the ground and apparently hot drinks available at half time. No stewards in sight. The 4G has a small seated stand and you can watch from inside the cage along part of one side. I was slightly surprised that the standing area didn't extend the whole length of the side but presumably they don't expect many spectators.


The club website had a match preview with details of the RH and stating spectators welcome. Nice to see that for a change. The RH is named after chairman John Radford and director Steve Hymas whose funds helped make the project viable.

Just a warning to those looking to visit the WISE campus where Bristol City U18 and women play.
They have now installed a big brother parking system which films you going in and out and parking has gone from free to not cheap.
Despite parking in a disabled bay and displaying my blue badge and reporting to the club officiial to register my car I still received a £100 fine, which I have no intentinn of paying.
Beware...or better still go somewhere else

Peterborough Utd, Mick George academy
Was hoping to go to see their U23 game today ( 18 Dec 2018 v Doncaster) hard to find anything about it but in the end phoned the club, who were not sure but helpful and in the end got the message - no public allowed 'Behind closed doors' game.

Don't think Millwall are keen on spectators at the training ground these days. From memory it might be possible to watch from the road, depending which pitch they use.
