Information for Visiting Teams
We look forward to welcoming you to the Thomas Alleyne Academy, home of Stevenage Starlets Football Club. To help ensure your visit as enjoyable as possible, please take a moment to read this important information.
Please be aware of the following site rules:
No dogs are allowed ANYWHERE on site, including the Middle Field
No smoking or vaping are permitted ANYWHERE on the site, including the car parks
Access and Parking
Please be aware that the school car park can get very busy on match days. Should the car park in the school be full, there is additional parking along the length of the High Street, or in a number of local car parks which are signposted from the High Street.
We ask that you are respectful both to other users and to our neighbours at all times. Please park appropriately, using only the designated spaces in the main parking area. There is no parking allowed at any time along the kerb on The Grange marked by double yellow lines.
Under no circumstances should anyone leave their vehicle blocking the gates into the school on the left side of the car park as these are needed for emergency access. You do not want to be the person responsible for delaying an ambulance getting to site.
Visitors are not permitted to drive further into the school beyond these gates. This is for the safety of everyone and anyone found doing so without specific permission will be made to leave immediately or have their vehicle clamped.
Finding Our Pitches
Our matches are now played on both the Middle and Front Pitches at Thomas Alleynes. Access to both is through the school grounds and there will be signage to guide you. Enter into the school through the gates on the left of the car park (next to the bicycle shelter), then turn right and walk about 50 yards past the sunken pond towards a courtyard area.
The Front pitches are on the right through the trees. The Middle pitches are to the left, going out through the gate and across the public footpath into the separate field.
The specific pitch number you are playing on will have been provided with kick off details and the layout of each field can be seen in our downloadable Map.
Toilets and Refreshments
Toilets are available on site, which can be found next to the entrance of the main School Hall, between the two sets of pitches. Here you will also find our Tea Bar, which sells hot and cold drinks, as well as a selection of sweets and snacks. Please be aware that we are only able to accept payment in cash.
Please follow up with your designated team contact if you should have any questions.
