HOME GROUND

Potters Mede

Welcome to Potters Mede - The Home of Potters Football Club

Located just inside the Parish of Wrotham, on the border with Borough Green, Potters Mede is one of the most impressive amateur football ground's in the Sevenoaks & District area, if not the whole of west Kent, and is the home of Potters Football Club.

The pitch area itself is on two levels, side-by-side with a sloped bank in between, with a 9v9 junior pitch on the top level, and the main full-size pitch on the lower level. An under-soil drainage system is in place across both pitches.
The pitches were sown from seed between the Autumn's of 2012 and 2013, and extensive work has been carried out since to slowly try and improve the quality of the root zone, grass density and durability of the turf, to withstand the wear encountered during the winter months & latter stages of the season.

The main Potters pitch currently measures 97x68m and features two dugouts located on the south side of the pitch, with a dense woodland walk on the west side of the ground up at the back of the top level.

The main building features a 12x10m hall with kitchen & WC's in one half of the ground level, whilst the furthest ground level half of the building houses the separate changing room block for players & officials. The hall also has an adjoining fenced 'garden' area, accessible from both inside, and outside the hall.
Upstairs, covering the full length of the building is the players lounge & clubhouse, formally known as the Taylor Room, which is currently used exclusively by Potters FC on match days.

Ground History + Redevelopment

In the late 1800's, the Potters Mede ground was believed to have been a key source of clay for local pottery works in Wrotham, Borough Green & Basted. The word 'Mede' has also historically been used to describe a water meadow. During the 1990's & 2000's, however, Potters Mede was simply a local recreation ground.
The formerly large, slightly sloped green space once accommodated one full-size football pitch, and for a time, a cricket square, as well as a less frequently used and more heavily sloped 7v7 pitch.
The original prefab building that housed a large hall, kitchen, WC's, changing rooms & showers, was burnt down in 2007 in an arson attack one week before Potters were due to play their first ever League game, however in 2012 the ground was completely redeveloped by Borough Green Parish Council.
A brand new modern building was erected, and the pitches were re-landscaped to create a fantastic new football ground facility that Potters Football Club are now proud to call home.
