Stevenage FC - The Lamex Stadium

The Lamex Stadium Guide

Stadium Info

The Lamex Stadium has 2 impressive looking all seater stands to the South and West of the stadium. The other two are all standing and the East terrace is particularly steep and very well sized for this level of the game. All stands are covered and offer unobstructed views (which is rare in the lower leagues) and the facilities inside are very good.

Away Fans

Visiting supporters are situated in the all seated South stand behind one of the goals and from here you'll enjoy a fantastic unobstructed view of the playing surface. The leg room, facilities and refreshments afforded inside are very good as you'd expect from a relatively new ground. The low roof also allow for a good atmosphere to be generated.

Where To Drink

There is a lovely Club House at the ground which welcomes in both home and away fans. This is the best bet mainly as there's very little else in the viable local vicinity to walk to. Inside the club bar you'll find a selection of hot and cold food and drink along with a big screen tv. Back up the road from the stadium is a Business Park that has a few food outlets such as McDonalds and Pizza Hut if you fancy getting something more substantial before or after the game.

Parking

Parking is available at the stadium if you arrive early enough and it's free of charge. There isn't a huge amount of street parking but you shouldn't need to look for anywhere else to park as the official car park seems to run smoothly on the way in and also on the way out after the final whistle.

    Travel: Drove from Burgess Hill to the ground. Easy to find and well sign posted.

    Refreshments: I had something to eat and drink at the ground in the social club. Everything was very reasonably priced.

    Impressions: From outside you can't see much of the Stadium because of the trees, but inside the stadium is clean and tidy and in all its a nice little ground. Everybody is so friendly from the stewards to the fans.

    Facilities: Facilities were ok. The social club is well worth a visit with drinks and food reasonably priced. My only gripe was that I ordered a chip butty which was very quickly delivered, but I was told sauces were on the shelf. The sauces and stuff were actually a pepper pot and a bowl with some sort of pickle in it. The toilets were reasonable but there was no hand wash facility, just a antibacterial spray As for the seating, I'm 6ft and sat comfortably for the whole game.

    Exit: The Stadium was easy to access and exit, as was the car park opposite the ground. There were a lot of cars in there but nobody got impatient and exiting ran smoothly.

    Enjoy: I had a great day and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see their team play away at Stevenage, to pay them a visit. A really friendly club

  • Travel: Once you get onto the A1(M), you cant miss it, the ground is well signposted from leaving at junction 7. There's not a great deal of parking near the ground, none of the surrounding retail parks allow it, but there is a field called Fairfields across the dual carriageway from the ground where parking is allowed for free. Bit of a pain getting out afterwards, and an absolute bog after a downpour, but otherwise fine.

    Refreshments: I was late getting to the game as there was an accident on the M1 on my first visit, so had to eat in the ground. Usually a bad move but glad I did cheesy chips, with not melted cheese, but cheese sauce…. Epic taste sensation! Discovered on my second visit that they don't sell them in the away end! Chicken burger was nice at least, so at least its a ground its not that bad to have to eat in the ground!

    Impressions: Brilliant little ground for its size and where Stevenage have come from. A long way for a team denied entry into the Football League in the 90s because their ground wasn't deemed good enough! First thing to note is that there are no restricted views in the ground at all, not a single pillar. Two new all seater stands, one down the side, and behind one goal for the way fans, a quality terrace running the length of the pitch down one side, and odd little North Terrace, which has half covered and half uncovered standing. Excellent little ground with just enough development to make it modern, but enough character retained with the old to make it unique.

    Atmosphere: It was a JPT game, so I went in with very low expectations, only to be surprised. It was fantastic, especially in the second half when Stevenage turned the game around. So a bit of a surprise on my second, with the ground 400 over capacity, the atmosphere from the home fans was dire. Noise in the away end was stunning though.

    Anything Else: Some fairly unique musical choices going on to add to Stevenage'’s uniqueness! Teams announced to Hawaii Five-O and Rocky, True Faith before the teams come out, then they walk out to S-Express!

    Enjoy: Excellent ground. Probably one of the best of its size Ive been to, if not the best. When you compare it to clubs and grounds of a similar size and stature, Accrington, Morecambe, Crawley etc. it leaves them all well behind. Location really spoils it though.
