Having previously played at The Marsh in Dunston Green, Brownsfield (the home of the local cricket club) and Station Road, the club moved to a new 10-acre (40,000 m2) site at Waterside Park in 1992. The record attendance at the current home is 1,400 for the visit of Aldershot town in the FA Vase in the 1993–94 season.

Thatcham Town plays its home games at Waterside Park in Crookham Hill, Thatcham, Berkshire, RG19 4PA. The ground has ample parking space and disabled access. Entrance can be gained via the turnstile block immediately adjoined to the car park, and from here programmes are sold.


Two seated stands with the combined capacity of eight-hundred sit behind the near goal and near touchline, while a further covered area is provided, by way of four rows of teracing, on the far touchline. A fully equipped refreshment stall is accommodated in the smaller of these, the Brooks Mileson Stand, along with the Home, Away and Referees changing rooms, while above are male and female toilets, a heated viewing gallery and the public address office.

Although the pitch is not floodlit, plans are underway to fill this last remaining criteria of the Northern League. The training pitch, hidden away behind the Armstrong and Earl Insurance stand on the near touchline, does have the provision of floodlighting and this is used by both the first team squad, and by the youth teams for matches.

Our association with the Carlisle and District Railway Club means that we are able to hold functions within their neighbouring facility, and it is to this that we return after each match, where a buffet is kindly put on for the teams and their supporters.

The facilities that we have at our disposal have no doubt played a major part in our success; attracting fans and players alike; and have been covered in the national media relating to the sport.
