Potters Mede

Declared "The best ground across all four Divisions" by the Sevenoaks & District Football League, Potters Mede is the home of Potters FC, and is a ground rich in history.

In 18th and 19th century, Potters Mede was a key site for local pottery businesses in Wrotham and neighbouring villages, where the local potters would source their clay.

Now the ground boasts one of the finest football pitches and some of best facilities in the area as the proud home of Potters Football Club.

Potters Mede was the chosen home location for current club manager and founder, Henry Willard when the club was born in 2007, back when the site was a simple field with a slope, and the changing facilities were located within a 25-year old prefabricated building that was erected in November 1981.

Just weeks before Potters FC were due to play their first ever game in September 2007, the building at Potters Mede was burnt down in an arson attack, leaving the newly formed club without any changing facilities, or any sense of a real 'home'.
Thankfully, Wrotham School allowed Potters to use their changing facilities across the A227 between 2007 and 2011 whilst the club still played their home games at Potters Mede, before Borough Green Parish Council finalized plans to re-develop the ground with re-landscaping and a brand new building.

Between 2011 and 2013, Potters FC played their home games at Wrotham School 3G whilst extensive work was carried out at Potters Mede, and the end result upon completion in the summer of 2013 was magnificent.

Potters Mede now boasts four smart changing rooms with individual showers and WC facilities, an officials changing room with two showers and a private WC, an exclusive Players Lounge, kitchen/matchday tea bar, male & female WC facilities, disabled WC, community hall available to hire, 9v9 grass pitch, and the main 11v11 grass pitch with raised banks on two sides for enhanced spectator viewing.
The club also has its own car park which is free of charge and can accommodate up to approximately 40 vehicles.
