I like The Northolme. Although some of our on the field experiences there have tended to induce a shudder. It's a neatly attractive stadium offering plenty of seating in the main stand , covered terracing on two sides and an open terrace , where they tend to dump the away fans when there are any. There were about 400 last season, and although the event was segregated, they spread themselves around all 4 sides!


The hungry traveller need look no further on arrival than Scubby’s. Scubby’s problems with his onions are well documented, but he had his act together 2015/16 and fans were mostly in praise of his fare. 

I however was more cautious and just had a coffee which was about the weakest I can recall consuming-  I didn`t …tipping 90% away! There was another facility in the home end however, which many County fans made use of. The Supporters Coop Board member with special responsibility for matters gastronomic, confirmed that “ the pies are great” but when he added “ but there’s only steak” my interest waned!
