Leamington’s stadium is a pleasantly unpretentious venue.

We have been  segregated on occasion at this venue, but our  hosts have laid on a temporary bar, and a standard eatery  ,but it remains to be seen as to what is on offer for a Tuesday evening game . 

Serviceable pitch side bar....
The toilets were of the `portaloo’ variety and thus not universally popular.


Sustenance!  

Old hedgie’s Gastronomic Adviser, Jeff, was tasked with looking at the catering facility, and was impressed with the burger he consumed, no adverse comments were directed hedgie’s way from others either.

The temporary bar offered  just lager and Thwaits Smooth’,  but it was open all the match ,and hedgie, together with the F&A Committee, found the `Smooth’ very drinkable. 
     

Programme.       

`Brakes’ was about the best programme the writer had come across, whilst travelling. It was packed with stuff about County, including a couple of articles on County History, which proved most interesting. This publication comes highly recommended.
