Review by Grimsby Town fan Dan Birtles
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
I went to this game because I love to follow the Mariners away.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
I went via train and was fairly easy to get to.
If you got the train, how easy did you find it to make your way to the stadium from the station?
An easy 15 minute walk with plenty of people willing to help you find the stadium.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
A variation of pubs around the train station, which allowed easy access for away fans, and the atmosphere was welcoming.
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
I ate at a bakery called Claire’s Bakery about a 2 minute walk from the away end, which was very good food for very little price.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
I had a good view of the game from the terrace which was on the same side as the home fans.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Very good, town fans didn’t stop singing all game.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Very easy, not much traffic but perhaps that’s because the game was on a Tuesday night.
If you stayed over, where did you stay and was it convenient for getting to the stadium?
Ibis Hotel, next to the station, which is about a 15 minute walk from the ground.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
Roughly £180 as I travelled by train from Northampton, including hotel cost. I think the football is always good value for money!
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
