WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED
Up to 2,000 visiting supporters are allocated the Kia Stand behind the goal. There are some pillars to peer round, but the small size of the stand helps the vocal support! There are food outlets and toilets at each corner.
There is a McDonald’s near to the ground, in Boothen Crescent to the left of the away end. The kiosks in the ground serve the normal food including chicken balti pies, cheeseburgers, burgers, roll over hot dogs and sausage rolls. There are food outlets at each corner, unfortunately near to the toilets which can lead to congestion at half time.
It may be possible to use Saddlers Club just outside the stadium for an entry fee of £2
The King George V pub is in Wallowes Lane which is just past McDonalds; opposite Morrisons supermarket, about 15minutes from the ground. As it is the nearest pub for away support it can busy. Avoid the Fulbrook near the ground – not for away fans!
