Devonshire featured in nearly 450 professional games in midfield, most of them alongside Sir Trevor Brooking for West Ham United between 1976-1990. 

 

The 65-year-old has eight England caps to his name and also managed at Hampton & Richmond Borough.

Maidenhead Station is a five minute walk from the ground and is served by trains from London Paddington. A “fast train” will take around 30 minutes to get there.

Stripes Bar is the social club facility at the ground and we will all be made welcome. 

 

The Conservative Club adjacent to the stadium is also open and should be accepting away supporters.

The ground first opened in 1871 is now officially recognised by the FA as the ‘oldest senior football ground continuously used by the same club.’
