Brentwood Town Ladies FC are pleased to confirm that all home matches in the 2011-12 season will be played at Chadfields, home of Ryman League Division One North club Tilbury FC.
Town's promotion into the South East Women's Combination for the upcoming campaign has necessitated the move, with manager Ian Bent revealing that Blues have left their previous ground at the Society of Old Brentwoods with a heavy heart: "The club owes Old Brentwoods a lot for being our home for the past twelve months and I hope this won't be the end of our relationship with them," he said.
Brentwood made their debut at their new venue on Sunday, beating Eastern Region League Premier Division outfit Braintree Town 6-0 in a friendly after Dockers boss Paul Vaughan had given the squad a guided tour of the south Essex venue.
"With our recent progress on the field, progress off the pitch needs to follow closely and this is one of many steps we have had to put in place to accommodate Combination football next season. Paul Vaughan and the team at Tilbury FC have already been most welcoming and I thank them for that. Everyone is excited about the upcoming season and a new home adds to this excitement," Bent added.
Tilbury moved into Chadfields in 1947 after being effectively evicted from their previous home, The Orient Field, next door. The ground had been used for greyhound racing, but was in a state of disrepair after sustaining bomb damage during the Second World War. A small stand was immediately constructed, along with a small terrace, and two years later the club record attendance of 5,000 was established in an FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round replay against Gorleston.
A clubhouse was built in 1958 and floodlights were switched on at the venue in 1966. The original main stand was replaced some six years later, with a recent renovation seeing 146 seats added. This stand sits atop the dressing room complex. On the opposite side of the ground, the seated capacity of Chadfields is enhanced to 318 by a secondary stand, constructed fifteen years ago, between two covered terraced areas. There are further shallow standing areas behind each goal and between the turnstiles and the dressing rooms.
Brentwood Town Ladies FC look forward to welcoming players, officials and supporters to Chadfields this season.
