Family Guide

A guide for families attending the Montgomery Waters Meadow

Welcome to the Montgomery Waters Meadow!

Shrewsbury Town FC, your local community Club and the only League Club in the county of Shropshire, actively encourages families to come to the Montgomery Waters Meadow and support your Town.

Football is a family game, and we are a family club aiming to make your matchday experience with us positive and fun for all ages. 

Getting to the stadium?

Situated on the South side of Shrewsbury, the Montgomery Waters Meadow is just a stone’s throw away from the A5 and A49.

We are around a half-an-hour walk away from Shrewsbury town centre and there are also options of travelling by bus from the town centre and other nearby towns.

We also have a number of parking options within a 15 minute walk of the stadium, the closest being Wyvale Garden Centre (Percy Throwers)

For full travel details please see our Matchday Travel Plan

Before the match?

We would love to see you down at the ground early and soaking up the atmosphere. We have a newly created Fanzone which offers live music, food and drink, and in the summer months we provide activities for children run by Shrewsbury Town in the Community.

You might also want to pay a visit to our club shop, which is home to a wide arrange of items including Replica Admiral Shirts, leisurewear items and smaller gift ideas. We also have a pop-up club shop situated in the Family Stand selling a range of pocket money items. Visit our Online store    

Once in the ground Children (and Adults!) will also have the opportunity to interact with our much loved mascot ‘Lenny the Lion’ and his wife ‘Mrs Lenny’. Watch out pre match for Lenny giving out sweets to the children. There may even be a chance to get an autograph from some of our players as they come out to warm up.

You could also have a bite to eat. Our buffet bars serve a wide range of hot and cold drinks, pies, sausage rolls, hot dogs, crisps and a range of confectionary items. We even have vending machines in the concourse selling sweets and crisps to save queuing!

Where to sit?

When attending the Montgomery Waters Meadow, the best place for families to sit is in the Family Stand (Blocks 6 and 7) in the Roland Wycherley Stand. This is where a large number of our younger supporters sit to cheer on the Town.
