Whaddon Road is another good spot to spend an afternoon watching football. The stewards are helpful and friendly and the away end, with its low(ish) roof, offers good acoustics. The down side of course to this is that we were segregated again , thus whilst the home supporters had access to bar facilities, and a side on view of the match, County fans did not just another frustration that comes with being a County fan?




Sustenance!



The food on offer is usually pretty good…






..the burgers and hot dogs got good reviews from the Brothers Lee, and others, last season, but the onions by contrast were about as popular as the prices which had a flavour of the Football League about them.
