Can't believe it's the last away game of the season. My life will be empty.
Any suggestions on pre-match pubs?
For anyone unfamiliar with the ground it's a deceptively long trek to the away end so leave a few extra minutes to get in.
Can't see more than 200 Blues at this one.

Opposite the home end is a pub called the Crimean, last season. That was where CFC fans drank. it's a bit of a dump but it did the Job

Other than that there's plenty of pubs in Union Street(?) run's parallel with the high street, and that's where the Weather's, Yates and other cheap no frills pubs are.

Last time I went to Aldershot I went down the A5, M54, M6, M5, M40 as far as Oxford, then down the A34 and the A339 to Basingstoke, then the M3 to the A331, and the ground is on the RHS on the A323 when you get to Aldershot.

If traffic looks bad, when you get to Shrewsbury on the A5, you could try the A458 to Bridgnorth, the A442 to Kidderminster, and the A448 to Bromsgrove to pick the M40 up.

Might sound long-winded, but the A34 past Oxford is great once you get on it and you can avoid the busier motorways.

The ground is a short walk from the town centre, not the most scenic one you'll ever visit, but there are quite a few places to eat and drink.

If memory serves, the Premier Inn is very close to the Army sports fields which run for miles (seems like it anyway) down the main road. If you pass them you'll probably see any number of sports being played there smile.gif

The Army Museum is not bad Tony but apart from that I would take a drive into the country to be honest!

Don't fancy any more driving, traffic was awful five & a half hrs to get here avoided M25 that had 40 min delay on it.

Didn't know the Royal Horticultural Society had something there.
