Wincham Park has been Witton Albion's home ground since 1989 since moving from the Central Ground in the Town Centre of Northwich.
One of the best football facilities outside of league football, Wincham Park was renamed the Help for Heroes Stadium in 2011 to reflect Witton Albion's support of this important charity.
Despite being over 20 years old the stadium boasts fantastic facilities and a playing surface that is the envy of many non-league clubs. All upkeep of the stadium, including the pitch, is undertaken by a dedicated army of volunteers that spend hours carrying out continuous improvement tasks. Fundraising collections towards the upkeep of the pitch over recent seasons has seen regular investment in the playing surface, which has been repaired and restored during the summer each year and has had new drainage added.
The main stand is all seating with ground level areas for wheel chairs. Dressing rooms are located in the main stand as is the social club, which can be accessed from the within the ground. The main stand also features a director's seating area for home and away officials, plus houses the club's tannoy room and press box. A small gantry is available for cameras. The home and away dugouts are either side of the half way line in front of the main stand and access to dressing rooms is via the tunnel situated towards the Wincham end of the ground.
The three further sides of the ground are all terracing and generally home and away fans are able to walk around the permiter in any direction if they wish to swap ends at half-time. On occasions crowd numbers call for segregation and it is not possible to move around the ground. When this is necessary information is posted in advance on this web site.
The ground has two refreshment kiosks in opposite corners of the ground serving hot and cold drinks and food. Again these are operated by volunteers to an exceptionally high standard.
The floodlights in the four corners of the ground were upgraded in 2011 thanks to the succesful award of a grant from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (Football Foundation) of £9,500, which was used in addition to further fundraising from the club's supporters.
Wincham Park was home to Runcorn Linnets for several seasons prior to them successfully moving to a new home in their town.
