BARS AND FOOD

There are a total of 5 bars at Broadhurst Park. Home supporters will have access to all bars and food provision. Alcohol will not be served in the away end, but food and soft drinks will be available.

The club has been granted a licence to serve alcohol throughout the match and fans will now be allowed to drink alcohol on the terraces from plastic glasses. As a result all drinks will now be served in plastic glasses.

The Main Stand Function Room Bar will serve hot food together with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks before, during and after the match. We ask that fans purchasing alcohol in the Main Stand Bar during the game do not congregate at the back of the Main Stand, but instead find a position in the seats or terraces.

Before the turnstiles open, access to the Main Stand Function Room Bar is via the main reception by payment of the match admission price. After the turnstiles open, entry to the function room will be via turnstiles 1-6 or 9-12 and then through the seated area of the Main Stand.

Our Cask Ale Bar situated under the Main Stand, behind the Main Stand Paddock, will sell a selection of ales. Opposite the Cask Bar the Food Bar will serve hot food prepared by our chef, pies from J W Buckleys and non-alcoholic drinks.

In view of the pitch we have a Bar between the Main Stand and SMRE which serves sell draught lager and bitter. We also have a Bar situated in the North Stand (opposite the Main Stand) next to the Burger Van. As well as serving draught lager and bitter, this bar will also sell pies, peas and gravy.

- St Mary’s Road and the streets off St Mary’s Road; including Teddington Road, Merridale Road, Worthington Street and Tymm Street.

- Nuthurst Road;

Stockport lost 0-1 on their last visit to Broadhurst Park in an FA Cup tie on October 3rd despite the Reds playing with 9 men for 50 minutes.
Hatters manager Jim Gannon made 383 League appearances for the club and scored 52 goals between 1990-2000.
Midfielder Harry Winter scored 6 goals in 60 appearances for FCUM between 2015-17
Midfielder Gary Stopforth made 2 appearances for FCUM during the 2008-09 season.
Jordan Fagbola made 39 appearances for the Hatters between 2012-15
Kallum Mantack made 4 appearances for FCUM during the 2017-18 season before scoring on his Hatters debut against the Reds.
FCUM’s NLN tally of 37 points from 30 games is higher than the tally of 2015-16 (32) or 2016-17 (34).
When Adam Gilchrist scored at Hyde on Tuesday the Gilchrists joined the Baguleys as brothers scoring for FCUM in the same season.
