How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
I go the train, which was very good. 45 minutes from London St Pancras and then a 10 minute walk to the ground.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
N/A

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I was near the back of the home end behind the goal, so my view was excellent.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problem

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Ate outside.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
A bit up and down, but very good when it got going. Away fans are uncovered, so couldnt really offer a lot.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
There is a pedestrianised High Street as you come out of the station with loads of places to eat and drink. Also a pub on the corner near the away end that away fans are welcome to use so good all round.

Overall Score Out of 10?
Very good ground, but for that temp away stand.
8/10

I always go by car, but the train station has various routes to/from London - and is only a 15 minute walk from the station.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
No official car parks, but plenty of roads nearby that have parking space. Also I believe the club also rents out the car park of a Sikh temple as parking for fans.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
The best view in the stadium is high up and central on any of the stands. My favourite is the Rainham end stand.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
Fine, never had trouble

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Food is ok the few times I've ate, always seem to be running out of hot water though..

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
When the team are playing well the atmosphere from the home support is really good. Especially from the group of more vocal supporters at the back of the Rainham End stand. However the away stand doesn't allow much of an atmosphere as it has no roof, so the noise is kinda lost. also this year Preistfield has only seen a few big away supports - this being due to most other clubs being in the northern parts of the country. When the team are playing badly, the atmosphere turns just to all out abuse of the officials/players.

Overall Score Out of 10?

For home fans 8/10
for away (from what I can imagine) 5/10
