Bostik League South club Walton Casuals will open the brand new Elmbridge Sports Hub when hosting Horsham on Saturday.
After two years away from Walton-on-Thames, and groundshares at Merstham, Whyteleafe and Cobham, the Stags are finally coming home to Waterside Drive.
The Elmbridge Sports Hub, developed on the site of the former Waterside Stadium, will provide excellent public facilities for not only Walton Casuals, but also Walton & Hersham, Walton Athletics Club and the local community.
The new stadium allows the thirty-five Walton Casuals junior teams to all train and play in one location close to home, through two full-size 3G pitches and a grass pitch.
These have the potential to become smaller pitches and welcome smaller-sided games.
Adjacent to the main football pitch, the Elmbridge Sports Hub also offers an eight-lane floodlit athletics track and field sports arena in the centre.
The ground offers excellent seating for supporters, but the option to get closer to the action is always available. A free car park will also top off the matchday experience.
Chairman Tony Gale said: “I have lived in Elmbridge for 35 years and this is the most exciting football initiative I have come across. With the clubs’ Bostik League status, 500 strong youth section, disabled and ladies teams, I am proud to be a part of it”.
WE'RE COMING HOME! It's the worst kept secret in Surrey, but the Stags return home this Saturday!
