Moss Lane (known as the J. Davidson Stadium for sponsorship reasons) is a multi-purpose stadium in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, England. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Altrincham and Manchester United Reserves.[1] It is also used for cup final matches in the Timperley and District Amateur Football League. The stadium comprises two all-seater stands on one side with a combined capacity of 1,323 spectators and terraces on the other three sides, giving a total capacity of 6,085.[2] The Duncan Watmore Memorial Sports Hall was built in 2015, funded by the transfer of Duncan Watmore to Sunderland for £6.2 million.

Chorley Borough RLFC moved to Moss Lane for the 1989–90 season and renamed themselves Trafford Borough RLFC. Trafford Borough played at Moss Lane for three seasons before moving to Blackpool as Blackpool Gladiators RLFC for the 1992–93 season.
