Been going to Gigg Lane for quite a number of years now being a season ticket holder. There have been a lot of upgrades over the years, with ups and downs on the pitch. That aside Gigg Lane is a nice ground to go to....More

This is a tidy smallish Ground. Friendly atmosphere and only a short walk from the town centre. We found that off street parking near to the ground was straightforward. The away stand has good sightlines without inconvenient pillars. The space between rows is fine and...More

Been coming here for 55 years. Would never consider changing my support to another team. The stadium is good for this level, though now starting to become tired compared to some of the modern stadia.

It is a typical, old, tired English-League football stadium. There is no catering to speak of inside the stands and no bar either (unless you go in the hospitality "suite," which we did, which is average. Cold chips and pork pies at half time! However,...More
