Review by MK Dons fan Pete Williams

Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?

I always go to the away games with the Dons but as I had never been to Barrow it made it a more exciting trip to look forward to.

How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?

Went by car with a couple of friends. A very easy journey (M1 then M6 then A590) albeit very long.

If you drove, was it easy to find car parking and make your way to the stadium?

Parked in nearby ASDA as we had pre-booked a space in advance. I understand from talking to a Barrow fan that we could have parked for free nearby though.

Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?

Visited the Supporter’s Bar which not only sold good cheap beer but had a great atmosphere. Highly recommended!

What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?

Had a meat pie in the ground which was one of the best I’ve eaten for a while. Good value as well. Aldo had a coffee which was ok.

What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?

Lots of posts and also couldn’t see the touchline nearest us plus one of the corners. The stand is temporary I think but at least it is covered. We were also next to a race track by the sound of the cars & bikes whizzing along during the game.

What was the atmosphere like during the match?

No noise from the home fans until they scored and even our normally noisy fans were quiet. Rubbish game that should have been 0-0 until they scored and then we were lucky it stayed at just 1-0.

How friendly were the home fans out of 10?


How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?

Short walk back to the car and no problems getting our journey home underway.

How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?

For an OAP ticket (£16) plus my share of the petrol & food & drink I spent about £75 which for a day out with friends is good value. Shame about the team’s performance and result.

Would you recommend this away day to other fans?

Very much so although if visiting during the early months of the season (as it’s in Lake District country) then leave plenty of travel time as only 1 road into Barrow.

Is there anything else you want to tell us about your day?

The home fans were really friendly and if possible I would have given them a higher score than 10 out of 10!
