Away Ground Guide - Spennymoor Town ( Saturday 5 August 2017)

Spennymoor Town FC,
The Brewery Field,
Wood Vue,
DL16 6JN

A new ground, and a typically warm North Eastern welcome  will await County in the first match of the 2017/18 I have no doubt.

Admission Prices 2017/18:-
Adults £12
Concessions £8
Juniors £3
Under 10's Free with accompanying adult.

The following information comes from the Spennymoor Club.......

Durham Road and Wood Vue tend to be very congested on match days so we recommend home and away supporters use the main Car Park behind the Town Hall or the Leisure Centre, which is a short walk from the ground. Parking is free. Don’t however use the Iceland / Home Bargains car park as you are liable to get a fine or clamped after a couple of hours.

Ground Access
Access to the ground is via the Wood Vue turnstiles just off Durham Road. Disabled access is also available at this entrance.

Bar and refreshment Facilities
The bar is located in the main stand towards the far end of the ground. Hot and cold, food and drinks are also available beyond the main stand.

Toilet Facilities
Gents toilets are available before the main stand close to the turnstiles. Ladies Toilets are situated on the other side of the stand towards the far end of the ground. Ladies and gents toilets are also available in the main grandstand – access is through the bar.
On the Tees Crescent side of the ground the newly refurbished toilet block is now open providing Gents Toilets as well as facilities for disabled supporters and is suitable for wheelchair access. This toilet also doubles up as a Ladies Toilet and Baby Changing facilities are also included.
Please note that access to this side of the ground is restricted to the Tees Crescent entrance due to the terracing around the rest of the ground. If you wish to attend a game and you are restricted to a wheelchair please contact the club in advance and arrangements will be made for access.

By Rail.... 

I  have found putting info together on trains  to  Spennymoor difficult in so far as Spennymoor  no longer has a train station.
Getting to Spennymoor thus needs a transfer from Bishop Aukland, and with this taken into account would add an hour or more to the travelling time.
In addition tickets are likely to be £40- £65 range depending presumably on when you travel, so it's your call, and rail buffs will maybe think the extra trouble worthwhile.

Real Ale recommendations close to the ground.....

Just 0.1m away is the Moors Tavern ( DL16 6QH), and it comes very highly recommended........

and 0.2m is the Brewers Arms( BD16 6AG)
