Galpharm Stadium - Huddersfield Town
Saturday September 4th, 2010
Bournemouth, League One, 3pm
Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case
to League One this year, I was on a mission to attend every home and
away game for my club and with several big stadiums to visit this season,
this was certainly one to look forward to seeing for the first
2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
took the AFCB supporters coach to Huddersfield so the journey was
relatively hassle free. No major traffic problems, arrived at the stadium
with plenty of time to spare.
3. What you did before the game
pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?
After visiting the club shop, I went to a bar near the
stadium (forget the name) which allowed both sets of supporters and showed
the lunchtime game on tv. The bar was nice with a quiet atmosphere and
some of the home fans were very friendly asking about the journey up and
so forth and thoughts on the game ahead.
4. What you thought on
seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the
Definitely one of the best grounds Iíve been to. While it may
not exactly be the biggest, from a design perspective it was marvellous.
Great circular shape for each stand with the Wembley style archways over
each of them. Very nice on the eyes and was pleased that the away fans got
a whole stand to themselves.
5. Comment on the game itself,
atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc..
Game was very satisfying which I guess rally added to the
occasion. Despite dominating the first half, our slender lead was pegged
back just before half time. Then went 2-1 down in second half but fought
back really well to secure a 2-2 draw. Stewards were friendly enough, had
a little natter before the game about our strikers. Cheeseburger was
decent, blah blah. No complaints from hospitality point of view.
Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
Was a little slow but you have to expect that. Been to
alot of worse grounds when it comes to getting away for sure.
Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
At this point in the
season, still my favourite away day so far, despite not securing a win.
The stadium itself being a real high point along with friendly home fans,
good atmosphere during the game with both fans making a lot of noise and
an overall good performance from the lads to secure a very satisfying
result. Definitely an away game Iíll be going back to assuming we play in
the same league again.
