Ascot United’s Racecourse Ground has earned a Berkshire Football Awards nomination in the Calibra Tree Surgeons Best Ground category.

The home of the Yellamen and Yellawomen since the 1960s in the middle of the world-famous Ascot Racecourse had a serious upgrade in 2019 and now boasts an artificial pitch and improved facilities that include the new Ascot Sports Bar with significant outdoor seating and cover.

The ground came to the fore recently, hosting Wycombe Wanderers in the Berks & Bucks County FA Senior Cup semi-final, a match which saw the grounds record attendance broken – it now stands at 1,267.

One nomination said: “A massive amount of time and effort has been invested into the ground and surroundings. The facilities are arguably step 3 or 4 standard. Great catering facilities and a dedicated sports bar. A new outdoor drinking area with outside TV is now a permanent fixture. Excellent changing facilities including a digital tactics board and outside media board.”

Another simply said: “The grounds and pitch are great. The clubhouse and facilities are well kept, clean and accessible to all.”
