As temporary gaff`s go, Whaddon Road is a fairly superior one, at least for the travelling supporter. The Away End is a decent seated area behind one goal with a roof that offers decent acoustics!
Segregation is in place , but the stewarding is of the relaxed and sensible variety, so all as a result goes well, apart from the on field activity!






Sustenance!  

The food vendor made an effort last year and it showed….. the burgers were confirmed as `very good’ ,whilst I went for a jumbo sausage roll, which was excellent…..a reasonably sized real sausage in real bread. 





The price of the tea/ coffee at £2 raised an eyebrow or two, but I found no one anything less than happy with the food.


 
No extra to sit down  in Away End.
