Notes: The main feature at Talbot's ground is the impressive 500-seater stand that opened in 2005. Opposite the stand a new covered enclosure was constructed in 2013. Behind the goal to the left of the stand (purchased from Hamilton Accies' old Douglas Park ground) is another section of cover. The stand's slow completion has a history though. When it was dismantled at Douglas Park, the parts were carefully numbered for Talbot. However, someone in their infinite wisdom painted over them - leaving one hell of a teasing jigsaw! The ground has a teabar serving pies and burgers as well as hot and cold drinks. The club are named after the man who gifted them Beechwood Park, Lord Talbot de Maldahide.
