1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground (or not as the case
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 time.
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
I 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?
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 marvelous. 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.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
Was a little slow but you
have to expect that. Been to a lot of worse
grounds when it comes to getting away for
7. 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.
