Cantilever Park is undergoing a series of renovations to ensure that the ground complies with the National League North’s stadium requirements. Warrington Town were promoted from the Northern Premier League last season, which is step three of the non-league football pyramid.

At step two, clubs are required to create a segregated area for away supporters and have a minimum capacity of 3,000. These ground improvements have to be finished before April 30, an extended deadline given to Warrington by the FA.

Warrington chairman, Toby Macormac, said: ““It would be quite easy to do what other clubs have done for us, and that’s putting the away fans in a tiny segregated area with a small snack bar and a portable toilet.”

“It’s not the right thing to do – we’re trying to provide a great matchday experience for our home fans and we should provide that for visitors as well.

“It’s important that we put the right facilities in because when we don’t have to segregate, we want our fans to use that area. It has to be of a good quality.”

Elsewhere in the ground, there are three covered stands, including the main stand, which has 300 seats for supporters and two terraced-stands.

The new stand at the Wash Lane end of the ground has a capacity of 182, specifically for away supporters. New toilet facilities and food and drink kiosks have also been added around the ground.

Before this season, seating and standing at Warrington were first come, first serve, so the away day experience has significantly changed with the recent renovations. The ground is easily accessible via public transport, and there are plenty of spaces to park near the ground in residential areas if fans choose to drive.

Friar Penketh is a Wetherspoons pub, which is just over a mile away from the stadium.

Warrington serve alcoholic drinks, pies, and pasties inside the stadium.

Warrington have been granted an extension for the upgrades to Cantilever Park needed to comply with National League North stadium regulations. The original deadline to complete the erection of a new 182-seat stand in the Wash Lane end for away fans was Friday, March 29.

However, this deadline has been extended to Tuesday, April 30, by the Football Association due to inclement weather, material shortages, and delays in grant funding. The handrails have been added around the ground to increase the minimum capacity of 3,000 required by the league.

There is free parking outside the ground, but there are limited spaces. However, there are plenty of street parking options for visiting fans. Warrington advise fans to be “considerate to local residents” when parking on matchdays. The ground is located just off Loushers Lane, which is in the Latchford area of Warrington.

You can also get the bus from Warrington Interchange. Take the number 11 or 12 service and get off at Pearson Avenue, where it is a short walk to the stadium. This fare journey costs £2.20 for a one-way adult ticket.

The nearest train station to Cantilever Park is Warrington Bank Quay. From here, it is just over a 30-minute walk to the stadium. A taxi from the station to the ground is usually around £6 to £8, but the bus is the cheapest option. You can take the advised bus route from Warrington interchange, along with a variety of other options. Rome2Rio outline the best bus routes from Warrington Bank Quay station to the ground here.
