What's the ground like?

The ground located in the village of Warton boasts good facilities with car parking, a snack bar, covered seating and terraces. Kellamergh Park is in a rural setting, but the club offers a free shuttle bus with various pick up and drop off points, and with Blackpool also nearby, Fylde is a good day out.

AFC Fylde moved in 2006 to the new ground at a cost of £150,000 to meet league requirements and they have since added facilities and increased the capacity. Kellamergh can now hold 2,250 and the Main Stand seats 282, whilst the North Terrace is covered standing for up to 800 spectators.

The club also added covered terraces behind the goals in 2010 for a further 100 fans. The car park holds up to 150 vehicles, but it is worth arriving early to ensure a space on match days.

On 13th October 2012, the Lancashire side recorded their highest ever attendance of 1, 418 when FC United fans travelled to Kellamergh Park to watch the hosts win 4-2.

Getting to the ground by car

From North and South

AFC Fylde is based in an area called "The Fylde Coast" located between Blackpool and Preston.

Kellamergh Park is located in WARTON. EXIT via Junction 3 M55 (signposted A585 Fleetwood/Kirkham).

Up approach and turn left towards signs for Kirkham. In around 3/4 mile you will approach a roundabout. Then follow the signs for Wrea Green and Lytham St. Annes (2nd exit) B5259.

After another 500 yards you will approach a new roundabout (go straight on) and 1/4 mile you will go over main Preston/Blackpool railway bridge and drop down almost immediately to a small mini roundabout (pub on left called Kingfisher). Carry on straight over this and up to main roundabout (another 200 yards) at junction of main Preston/Blackpool A583. Go straight over roundabout and drive on into Wrea Green Village.

At 2nd mini roundabout in the centre of the village (Church on right and Primary School) take left turn into Bryning Lane, signposted on The Green (small white signpost) to Warton (2 miles). The Green will now be on your right as you exit out of the village and in around 1.8 miles you will come to the Birley Arms Pub on your left.

Turn left at The Birley Arms Pub Car park and continue to drive through the car park down an access road and park in the Main Club Car Park located behind the Main Stand.

Parking:

Car parking will be limited on the day so fans are asked to arrive early if they want parking on site.
