Our first meeting against Tamworth was a rude awakening for us in February 2004 – and the Lambs never made life easy for us. Our first-ever encounter – that FA Trophy Round Three tie – ended 3-0 in their favour. While our record against them improved, we weren’t able to beat ’em during our 2009-10 title-winning campaign; losing our most recent match against them. But The Lambs found times tough since relegation from the Conference in 2013; falling into the Southern League in 2018.
Tamworth: The Facts
The Lamb Ground
Kettlebrook, Tamworth, Staffordshire, B77 1AA
Take the M1 north from our neck of the woods and continue until Junction 20. Here, exit the M1; this is the A4304/A4303 exit for places like Lutterworth and Market Harborough. At the roundabout at the top of the slip road, take the first exit and bear left for the A4303.
Go over the next three roundabouts you come to, staying on the A4303. The fourth will connect you with the A5 by an Asda distribution centre. You’ll want the fourth exit here, heading north on the A5. Then, stick with the A5 until you reach Tamworth itself.
Come off the A5 using the exit for the B5440; the exit being by the town’s athletics club should that help? Take the third exit at the roundabout for the B5440, following it for 0.6 miles. You’ll come to another roundabout here, at which you need the first exit.
At the second roundabout you then come to, take a left down Kettlebrook Road.
There’s ample parking at the ground, although we suggest getting there early to avoid long queues on exit.

As you leave the station, walk along the approach road until you reach the roundabout; turning left and crossing the road as you pass under the railway. Continuing along, pass Jewson’s to the right down Offa Drive and keep going under you reach a roundabout.
Turn left here and cross the railway bridge, before following the path left into Amington Road. At the roadside railings, cross the road – but don’t go under the arches. Head up Kettlebrook Road for the ground instead.
