Review by Newport County fan Ben Fisher
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
I went as I am a season ticket holder of Newport County. I was looking forward to this game as I was confident because Morecambe were bottom of the league. We hadn’t won for 6 games and I was confident that we were going to win.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
We travelled up on a coach and it was easy. Last away game we played our coach broke down 4 miles from the stadium. Luckily, this time it didn’t.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
We went to the Hurley Flyer which was right next to the stadium. The atmosphere in the pub was ridiculous. Half of the home fans were in there! It was the most ridiculous jam-packed pub that I’ve ever been in!
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
I ate in the ground. I ate a pie and it was really good and the prices were good for a football match.
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
The food and drink was really top quality inside the ground.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
Our view was ok in the stadium but the away end was too small to fit all our travelling fans from South Wales. We took up loads of fans and weren’t allowed to use the standing section.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
The atmosphere wasn’t up to my expectations. It was ok but I felt like I was too far away from the action when the players were all up the other end of the pitch.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
The home fans weren’t really friendly as when we left they were shouting abusive stuff at us.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
In total, other than the ticket, I spent approximately £15 as it was all reasonably priced.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
I would recommend this away day to other fans. However, it is a long way to travel. For us it took a total of 4 hours and 50 minutes to get there.
