V Wrexham, Blue Square Premier, 3pm
By Jake Bruce
A short two hour coach trip to Alfreton from North Wales was a decent one. At around noon, as we approached the ground we were stopped by Police just down the road and ushered into a pub (I forget the name of it). It was a nice small pub with pool table, beer garden etc.. Police stood outside the pub while the Wrexhan fans were in there. There was also a chip shop across the road along with a general convenience store but alas the chip shop was closed.
We started to walk up to the ground at around 2:15pm. The stadium was about a 15-20 min walk from the pub and on the way we passed a large Tesco's store. On arrival at the ground, I noticed that as we had expected it was small looking, however stewards were helpful and it was reasonably priced to get in.
Once inside, the first stop was the food bar which served and a very good variety of food and drinks with reasonable prices and quality. Wrexham had around 500 fans in attendance and the stewards were forced to open the center section of the three part terrace which we pretty much filled as well. The home support was low but that we expected and the atmosphere was not great either. However the Wrexham fans did their best to generate some with with singing and a drummer, throughout the game.
We came out winners of the match so we were happy fans for the journey home. We walked back to our coach, which was one of three that had made the journey and after a small delay in leaving the area where the coaches were parked, we then got away without any problems.
Three points in the bag and a nice day. I'd recommend this ground to other fans as there is no trouble and nice friendly locals 8/10.
