Ground of the week
Ground of the Week: Raymond McEnhill Stadium
For a ground opened in 1997 there has been a lot of further development at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium - the home of Salisbury City.
Stadium Address: The Raymond McEnhill Stadium Partridge Way Old Sarum Salisbury Wiltshire SP4 6PU
Stadium Capacity: 3,740
BY ROAD: The ground is situated North of Salisbury, near to the A345. On entering Salisbury follow the ring around the city centre, until you reach the roundabout with the A345 (Castle Road). Head along the A345 towards Amesbury. You will pass the entrance to Old Sarum on your left and a Harvester on your right. At the next roundabout turn right along Portway and at the mini roundabout bear left. Take the next left into Partridge Way. The entrance to the ground is at the bottom of this road. There is a large car park at the ground, which costs £2 per vehicle, although on my visit I had to try hard to avoid all the pot holes!
BY RAIL: Salisbury station is located just over three miles away from the stadium.

The team's progression through the pyramid has mirrored the club's improvements to its ground.
On one side is the Main Stand, which is not really a stand as such.
Instead the rows of seating have been located in front of the Clubs office building, with the roof of that structure being extended outwards to give some cover.
The team dugouts are located in front of this area.
On one side is the In-Excess covered terrace which extends around one corner of the ground and along one end.
Opposite is an open terrace which is allocated to away supporters. The other side of the ground, known as the 'Hop Back Side', is a quirky looking affair, with two small pockets of covered seating sitting astride a large advertising hoarding for a local brewery, that also incorporates a small electronic scoreboard.
The fans are pleased.
If segregation is being enforced away fans are allocated a block of seating of the Hop Back side.
The Club does have its own Club House Bar. Which is just as well as there isn't another pub in easy walking distance as the Raymond McEnhill stadium is situated north of Salisbury near to the A345.
It was in 1997 when Salisbury moved to this purpose built stadium at Old Sarum and it is named after the then chairman, Raymond McEnhill.
And its record attendance was set this year when a figure of 2,633 was set on 19 January 2008 when Salisbury played Torquay United, drawing 0-0.
