Telephone No: 01952 640064
Nickname: The Bucks
The New Bucks Head stadium is a comparatively new stadium that replaced the Bucks Head ground on the same site. It was built in stages beginning in 2000, with the works being completed in 2003.
Town fans will be housed in the Frank Nagington Stand (covered), with access via turnstiles I and J.
Spectators should again enter via gates I/J and then approach a steward for arranging a transfer to the seating area. Seats will be available on a first-come-first-served basis, and priority will be given to elderly people, those with limited mobility and to families with young children.
Anyone who has limited mobility, and who is unable to enter via a turnstile, should report to the assisted-entry gate, which is between turnstiles P and A in the north-west corner of the ground.
As to refreshments, we can cater for your supporters in the concourses behind the Frank Nagington Stand and in the Sir Stephen Roberts Stand, where there are bars providing a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks. The concourses also have separate licensed bars for alcoholic drinks, and Telford believe that our prices there compare favourably with those charged by other premises in the vicinity. (Whilst we do not wish to denigrate The Dugout, which forms part of our stadium building, we would like to point out that our club does not own it and derives no benefit from it).
The club shop is located between turnstiles P and A.
Youth (16-19) £5
Under 16 £2
