Shoreham’s Middle Road ground is situated at the far side of a recreation ground, behind Southland’s Hospital, and has been the club’s home since 1970.
Parking is almost always available inside in ground which is accessed via Dolphin Road Industrial Estate and then into Dolphin Way. Pedestrian access to the club is via Middle Road and then across the recreation ground itself via a path to the turnstiles.
If you are coming from a distance and by car, Shoreham FC recommends parking in the club car park or in or near Dolphin Way. If you are local and are coming on foot, please access the club via the path in Middle Road.
The ground has floodlights, installed in 1986 and celebrated with a game against Wimbledon on 14 October, in front of a record crowd of 1,342. The current clubhouse to the left of the entrance dates from a year earlier. To the immediate right as one enters is a small wooden covered area behind the near goal, erected a few seasons ago.
Immediately ahead, along the near touchline is a seated stand. This was built in the late 1970s, as does the concrete boundary wall (which replaced temporary canvas sheeting). The stand is perfectly adequate, although the seats are at a low level and the numerous supporting pillars can be a bit intrusive. The remainder of the ground has hard standing and is open to the elements.
There is a new sponsors’ & officials’ area adjacent to the pitch; and the dugouts on the far side have recently been enlarged/extended. In addition, a grant from the FA has helped fund a new perimeter fence in place for the 2005/06 season.
How to find Us:
Take the A27 to Shoreham. At the Holmbush Roundabout take the exit towards Southlands Hospital. Immediately before the hospital, turn left down Hammy Lane, then right at the mini roundabout into Middle Road. The entrance to the ground is at the far end of the recreation ground immediately on the right.
