Review by Crewe Alexandra fan Mark Kirkham
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
We are Alex supporting exiles living in Worcester so this is our nearest chance to see the Alex in the flesh.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
Drove to the stadium and arrived at 1.30pm. We parked in the nearby club car park. Go past away end entrance on the left and take a left turn and then go into club about 300 metres on left £5 and 5 mins walk to the away entrance.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
We went into the Robins Supporters Club at the ground as we always do. The home fans are always kind and friendly once they realise you don’t support Forest Green! Had a couple of drinks and watched the Sky match along with the locals. All very jocular.
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
In the Robins bar you can order chips and sausage and such from the kitchen but we opted for the large sandwich rolls on the bar. Decent value at £2.50 or so.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
The catering for away supporters is from a hut in the corner of the ground with a limited menu and often not enough supply based on previous years. Go early if you want a pie and don’t bother asking for meat and potato – it doesn’t exist in these parts.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
Good view which is unobstructed although from front rows the far goal seems a very long way off. Decent toilets too. Stewards all very friendly towards us.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Great, plenty of banter with the juvenile local ultras in the nearby stand to the right. Not a single full driving licence amongst the lot of them I shouldn’t think. Mostly our games at Cheltenham are meaningless but this year it was top of the table stuff so the home fans were numerous and up for it as we were. Really good atmosphere.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
8/10 except for the faux Ultra teenage fans who were hilarious in a high pitched kind of way. They get 0/10 for friendliness and -10 for lack of originality.
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Not too bad. Traffic around the ground a bit lumpy but show me a town centre ground that isn’t a bit over busy around leaving time.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
£100. Yes a good time was had by all.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Yes we would. Its a friendly club with decent away facilities and no stupid hassle before or after. We go every year. Hopefully we will both be promoted so we can keep going!
Is there anything else you want to tell us about your day?
We drew. Should have won. But we always say that when we draw 🙂
