COACH TRAVEL INFORMATION:
Coachesleaves Vale Park: 8.30am
Bookings takenwith the Official Vale Travel up to Saturday afternoon.
Take M6(S) and join M5 exiting at J30. Follow signs to City Centre along Sidmouth Road, and onto Heavitree Road. On nearing the city centre take the fourth exit at the large roundabout onto Western Way. At the next roundabout take the second exit onto Old Tiverton Road, and then turn left into St James Road for the ground.
WHERE TO PARK:
The King William Street city Car Park is sign posted from the round about has lots of space and is only a short walk from the ground. There is street parking, but quite a way from the ground as there is a local residents’ scheme in operation.
It is about half the length of the pitch and sits astride the half way line. It has an unusual set of small floodlights along the front of its roof. Opposite is the Flybe Stand which was opened in 2001 and replaced the former Cowshed Stand. This smart looking all-seater stand is single tiered, with a row of executive boxes to the rear. On one side of the ground is an old looking Grandstand. It is all seated, covered and has windshields to either side.OVERVIEW OF STADIUM:
At one end is the 'Big Bank' covered terrace for 4,000 supporters, which was opened in February 2000 and replaced a former large open terrace. The Club has decided upon the name "The Cliff Bastin Stand". Cliff Bastin formerly played for Exeter City before moving onto Arsenal in 1929. During his many years at Highbury, Cliff Bastin scored more league and cup goals for Arsenal than any other player prior, recently, to Ian Wright.
WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE HOUSED:
The opposite end to the Cliff Bastin Stand is a very small open terrace, called the St James Road terrace. This end is given to away supporters. It is so small you can clearly see a row of houses that sit beyond it.
A definite recommendation. If you like your real ale then there is the Brook Green Tavern on Well Street. This pub is a regular in the annual CAMRA Good Beer Guide and is located only 50 metres away from the football ground and is away fan friendly and also serves bar snacks. The Bowling Green pub, which is about a quarter of a mile from the ground. It has good beer (i.e. proper ale with guest beers), is comfortable and quite airy, very friendly (locals were hospitable and fans of both clubs mixed amicably) and a separate pool table for those so inclined. A full menu is served. There is a Social Club at the ground, which admits away supporters for a small fee. Otherwise, the ground is walkable from the city centre where there are plenty of pubs.WHERE TO GET A DRINK:
WHERE TO EAT:
Towards the town centre, along Sidwell Street is the KFC, with the Chef’s Corner just a little further towards town. On Old Tiverton Road can be the Far East Delight. Of course the usual match day food can be found at the ground, hopefully including pasties.
