1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground (or not as the case
Like Grimsby, Kidderminster used to be in League
Two, so I assumed that Aggborough would be a
decent ground. I had also not visited it before.
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
Journey was fine, but finding the ground was a
little bit of a struggle. We used a SatNav and it
failed to navigate us to the ground, instead just
sending us around a roundabout. We sneakily parked
in the 'home' car park which is free, saving £5 on
parking in the 'away' car park.
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
When we arrived at the ground, an hour and a half
before kick-off, we were greeted by some Kiddy
fans, who were really friendly. They asked us if
we had a good journey etc. and invited us to have
a drink in the Kidderminster Harriers Supporters
Trust Bar. It cost £1 to get in but the bar was
very relaxed, with both home and away fans mixing
without any trouble. There was a darts board and a
pool table in a separate room, which everyone was
allowed to enter. After paying the £1, it allowed
us to come back after the game.
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first
impressions of away end then other sides of the
The ground is one of the better grounds in the
Conference, to be honest. The away end is terraced
with a caging, separating away fans from each
other, which seemed a bit pointless to me.
Nevertheless, the two seating stands allocated to
Kidderminster fans were decent enough.
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
Dull game for Grimsby fans, with chances few and
far between but it was us that went home the happy
set of fans thanks to a beautiful Alex Rodman 25
yard volley that dipped the keeper. As Grimsby
always travel in numbers, that led to a great
atmosphere coming from the away end. We didn't
hear much coming from the Kidderminster fans
though! Stewards were decent enough and we were
able to have a little bit of banter. I was
slightly disappointed with the famous Aggborough
food. I ordered a Homemade Cottage Pie at
half-time, only to find out they had ran out. I
settled for a cheeseburger instead which was quite
nice. I didn't use the toilets so can't comment on
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
After the game, we went back to the Supporters
Trust bar, to let the traffic die down. This meant
we had an easy ride getting away from Aggborough.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
The day out to Kidderminster was great! Would
definitely recommend it to anyone considering
visiting Aggborough. But if you are taking a flag
with a stick in, the stewards will confiscate it
and not give it back, in our case!
