1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground (or not as the case
As a Stevenage fan, when the fixtures came out,
the first match I looked for was away at
Peterborough. I was thoroughly looking forward to
this game as it was the closest thing to a derby
we have in this league, and a chance to tick
another ground off the list.
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
I jumped on the train at Stevenage which went
direct to Peterborough. The train passed the
ground before we arrived at the station so it was
easy to figure out which direction to go. We
turned right out of the train station, walked
through the town center and the floodlights were
easily visible so we just headed in that
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
My friend and i went to a pub called "The Office"
which was about 10 minutes away from the ground,
we had a couple of drinks and watched a thrilling
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first
impressions of away end then other sides of the
My first impression on the ground was how old it
looked from the outside. The away section in the
Main Stand had a very low roof and a pillar which
slightly obstructed our view. The ground had two
large terraces, one of which is normally used by
away fans, however I believe this is going to be
demolished soon. The stand opposite us had two
tiers and looked very modern compared to the rest
of the ground.
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
The only goal game from a 20 yard curler from
Lucas Akins in the 20th minute, there were also 9
yellow cards and 1 red card in the worst refereed
match i have ever seen. As expected, the 600+
Stevenage fans generated a fantastic atmosphere
and really got behind the team. Sadly there was
not much banter with the Posh fans, we didn't hear
a peep out of them all game. The snack bar was
tiny and did not serve burgers so I settled for an
overpriced, dry, sausage roll. The toilets too
were in a tiny shed like room.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
After the game it was a simple walk through town
back to the train station.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
I thoroughly enjoyed my day, and 95% of that was
due to the result and an entertaining game and
it's another stadium I can tick off my list :)
