Away Accommodation.

It is quite a while since we last visited Alfreton and  our  experiences at this venue have been mixed on the park, having been the victims of a considerable shafting via the referee and serial offender Sebastian Stocksbridge in 2011/12, and 3-2 victors the following season.
Off the park though  travelling supporters  are housed in a rather curiously  divided open terrace behind the goal as you enter the stadium. There is a small covered stand to the right where those so inclined can obtain a seat with a decent view.
Sustenance is  via a small outlet alongside the above mentioned stand and my recollection of the experience using same was reasonably positive. Basic fare.....acceptable quality.

Real Ale Pubs in easy reach.......
 both are 0.3m away( note the Victoria  does not allow County fans in )
First off, on High Street.....the King Alfred.....


Then....also 0.3m away is Blueys.....

Coach Travel, well as usual the Fingerpost Flyer will get you there.

Picks Up Mercian Way....11.45/ Finger 12.00
Cost: £12/ £8 under 16's
Ring Lou on 07896 536757 to book( 14 seats left 19.4.2016)
