Kilbirnie Ladeside

Valefield Park is a football ground in Kilbirnie, North Ayrshire. It is home to Kilbirnie Ladeside, the local junior team.

History[edit]

One of the main stands

The Blasties (the nickname of Kilbirnie Ladeside) original home of Ladeside Park on Mill Road was partly built on by the army during World War II and the club relocated to Valefield, the home of Glengarnock Vale, another local side. Vale did not re-appear after the war and Valefield Park became Ladeside's permanent ground.

Structure[edit]

Although the ground is small it can comfortably hold up to six hundred spectators. On the north-west side there are two main stands which were both constructed at the start of the new millennium. The ground has around four main turnstiles, two of which are located on Kirkland Road. There is a small snack bar offering a wide range of hot and cold food and a licensed bar located on the south east corner welcoming both home and away support.

Average Attendance[edit]

The average attendance is around two hundred (varying for cup games).
