Waterside Park

Waterside Park is a sports stadium in Thatcham, Berkshire and the home ground of Thatcham Town Football Club.

Thatcham Town Football Club moved to Waterside Park in 1992, having previously played at The Marsh in Dunston Green, Brownsfield, and Station Road. The record attendance at their current home is 1,400, achieved during a match against Aldershot Town in the FA Vase during the 1993-94 season. Located at Crookham Hill, Thatcham, Berkshire, Waterside Park features ample parking and disabled access. Entry is through a turnstile block adjacent to the car park, where match programmes are sold.

The ground includes two seated stands with a combined capacity of 800, positioned behind the near goal and near touchline. Additional covered seating is provided by four rows of terracing on the far touchline. The smaller of the seated stands, the Brooks Mileson Stand, houses a refreshment stall, changing rooms for home, away, and referees, as well as male and female toilets, a heated viewing gallery, and the public address office. While the main pitch lacks floodlights, plans are underway to meet Northern League requirements. The training pitch, which is equipped with floodlights, is used by the first team and youth teams.

Thatcham Town benefits from an association with the Carlisle and District Railway Club, which provides facilities for post-match functions, including buffets for players and supporters. The club’s facilities have contributed significantly to its success by attracting fans and players, and have been highlighted in national sports media.
