FA Trophy Ground Change

Following a pitch inspection this afternoon we can confirm that tomorrow evening’s Isuzu FA Trophy Fifth Round tie against Coalville Town will now be played at Aveley FC.

Following consistent rain over the past two weeks there are still areas of concern with the playing surface at the RDA Stadium and as a result both clubs have agreed with the Football Association that the game will be moved to Aveley’s Parkside Stadium (Belhus, Park Ln, Aveley, South Ockendon, RM15 4PX).

The game remains a Bishop’s Stortford FC home game with Blues officials and volunteers fulfilling their usual roles at the ground and we thank them for their assistance as always.

We appreciate the co-operation of Coalville Town FC and apologise to both sets of supporters for any inconvenience caused by the change in location.

Kick off remains at 7.45pm and admission pricing will be £15 adults, £10 concessions (60+), £8 students and accompanied U12s are free.

Fans unable to travel will be able to watch the action live for a one-off fee of £7 at

We look forward to seeing you all at Aveley FC tomorrow night as the teams battle it out for a place in the Isuzu FA Trophy Quarter Final.
