Despite remaining full-time following their return to the National League North two seasons ago, Nuneaton Town FC have remained full-time and hope to return to the fifth tier of English football as soon as possible. However, last season, despite being one of only three full-time teams, the club finished in 12th position missing out on the coveted play-off spots by a long shot.
For the coming year, The Boro will be remaining fully professional and despite having a young squad, are expected to do well and compete at the right end of the table. This will also be the last season that the club refer to themselves as Nuneaton Town, following a fan vote that will see them revert to their original name, Nuneaton Borough FC.
Liberty Way (or the JDRF James Parnell Stadium) is the current home of Nuneaton Town, the club have a fractious relationship with the local Rugby club but will be ground-sharing in the near future. The ground has reasonable facilities for the supporter and an enclosed terrace for an away end which can create a good atmosphere (remember Glenn Rule’s volley last year?). For the last two years, County have failed to win on their travels to the midlands but hopefully this time, it will be three points rather than just the one. Tickets will cost fans £13 for adult and £3 for kids.
