Review by Ipswich Town fan Jamie Green
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
The game is not far from me and it was my first away day.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
It was an easy drive there.
If you drove, was it easy to find car parking and make your way to the stadium?
Parking in Gillingham is a nightmare. We ended up parking at a friends house 5 minutes from Priestfield.
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
Pies at the ground – Very nice.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
Good, and a decent price as well.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
The away end was a hole to be honest. It had scaffolding and the seating felt very unsteady for us as we filled the stand. The view of the game wasn’t too bad overall but I didn’t feel particularly safe.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
From Gills it was very flat and dull. Ipswich made the day awesome with chanting throughout.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
8/10 – The locals are friendly enough.
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Not very easy. The stewards made us walk around the away street rather than onto the street our car was parked on even though we explained it to them.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
No. The parking is atrocious and the stand is just a hole. Great result but a wet afternoon in Gillingham won’t be on cards for me again.
