Why you were looking forward to going to the
ground (or not as the case may be):
As I had previously been told that it was a faitry
new stadium with some impressive looking
floodlights and never have visited Doncaster
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
The journey from Suffolk was incredibly straight
forward and didn't take as long as expected. With
the stadium being Located on an industrial estate,
it was a matter of 5 minutes from the M18 and we
managed to park for £4 a short walk away.
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
We walked to a Beefeater pub/restaurant minutes
walk from the ground who were happy to serve us.
Reasonably priced drinks, in a packed bar and the
few home supporters that were there were friendly.
Also alongside there is a McDonalds & KFC.
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first
impressions of away end then other sides of the
The stadium looks fairly impressive from the
outside and yes the floodlights did look
stunning, although on the whole, the Keepmoat is
fairly similar to other modern stadiums. The away
end is big, and housed 1,266 of us Town fans, and
the enclosed stadium created a fantastic away
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
Stewards were exceptionally friendly, allowing us
to sit where we want and also stand throughout the
game. The way atmosphere was brilliant although
you couldn't say the same regarding the home
support. Pints were £3 which is a fair price and
the toilet were OK, better than some!
It was an open first half which we dominated and
went 2-0 up after a rocket from Stevenson although
we sloppily allowed them back into the game, but
we came through with a deserved 3-2 win.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
It was an easy walk back to the car, although it
was fairly busy getting out of Doncaster, took us
around 20minutes longer, probably due to the fact
of some road works too.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
A thoroughly enjoyable away day to finish the
season on 3points. A decent stadium, would come
again for the £22 paid.
