09.52 am or 10.52 am Chester to Stalybridge return £19.40 but you if ask for Chester to Frodsham return £5.20 then ask for Frodsham to Stalybridge £10.40 return, total off £15.60 gets you saving of £3.80 a pain in the butt doing that but it does save you a little.

Ummmm, is this your 40th footballing booze-up, or is it someone's birthday? unsure.gif

Either way, Eltonian's £3.80 x 30 saving on rail tickets will get the first round in guiness.gif

The point i am making is 40 people drunk at a match plus another 100 maybe travelling indepedently of them = 25% of our support p**sed at an away match usually leads to trouble with plod being heavy handed with ALL of us dont be suprised when plod are at the station and turn the train back...because where do you think they get their INTELIGENCE from? devachat

As far as im aware only one train full of fans has been sent back to Chester in the last few years and that was because of the trouble at Chorley the week before.

Before almost every single away game there are threads full of people discussing drinking before the game and the cases of heavy handed policing are actually very few and far between. In reality we dont get treated any differently to any other clubs that take big away followings with them.

Waggoner is right.The police at Stalybridge would never get informed by british transport police,cheshire police,manchester police,cctv opperaters or station staff that there was a large group of football fans on a train going to a match.Sorry Waggoner.So i wont tell anyone on deva chat that were going around 10.30 and having a few around manchester first.That should put the police off our scent.

Just to put you in the picture regarding the Stalybridge Station Buffet. This bar is part of the ten or so station pubs along the Manchester-Leeds line, known as the Real Ale Trail. There have been reports over the last year or so of trouble in these bars and on the trains, caused mainly by large groups of drinkers on all-day stag do's, ususally on Saturdays. Any excess rowdyness is likely to be met with firm action from bar staff and transport police. Take care. One of many news reports:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-16069913
For those on a tight budget there's a Wetherspoons about halfway between the station and the ground.

Taken from Stalyvegas website

By Train:
Stalybridge train station is on the main Trans-Pennine line between Manchester and Leeds/York.
Either go from Leeds station, or from Piccadilly Station in Manchester.

The trains to Stalybridge are regular from these two stations.

Once in Stalybridge station (there is a very good pub right on the platform - so you can drown your sorrow on the return trip!) exit by the front entrance.

Bus - 10 - 15 minute journey.

Straight across the road is a bus-stop, or a little further down the road on the right, is one of the bus-stations.

From either place, take the 217, 236 or 237 buses; all three of which go past Bower Fold.

The bus-journey will be about ten to fifteen minutes.

Ask the driver to alert you when it is time to get off - they are used to it.

The bus-stop is directly opposite Bower Fold.

For the return journey, there is a bus-stop on the same side as Bower Fold, take any of the previously mentioned buses, this time going to the Station.

Do not forget to try the pub! It is in the Good Pub Guide.

Walking - 30 minutes without stopping in a pub.

On leaving the station, turn right and walk under the railway bridge.

You will pass a series of pubs and wine bars, a newsagents, a couple of curry houses and kebab shops before reaching the White House inn opposite the bus station.

Continue along this road (Market Street) with the Cosmo Bingo on your left.

As you reach Melbourne Street, with the Halifax on your right, and an off-licence on the left, turn right onto Melbourne Street, and cross the bridge into the town centre.

Go right to the end of Melbourne Street, marveling at the new canal as you cross over it.

Turn left at the top by the Society Rooms (a Weatherspoons) onto Grosvner Street.

By the Stop and Rest, turn right, and cross Acres Lane at the Pelican Crossing to the Pineapple.

Turn left and stroll along Acres Lane to the traffic lights at the end.

At the traffic lights, turn right onto Mottram Road.

Walk up Mottram road for 10 minutes, and Bower Fold is on the right.
