Bramall Lane - Sheffield United
Saturday 19th March 2011
Vs Leeds United, Championship, 1pm
By Chris Fretwell
1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):
been to Bramall Lane before and being a Leeds fan, Sheffield United is a
an easy route from Mansfield to Sheffield, went through Chesterfield and
got onto the A61 then the ground appears on the right. Not much parking
around the ground but we found some street parking on Hill Street right
behind the away end. It costs £2 for 10 hours so it easily covers the
game. There wasn’t many spaces and the other streets in the area are
permit parking only so arrive in plenty of time.
impressions of the ground was that it looked modern from a distance but
then as you get closer, you can see it is ageing. The turnstiles are
electrical so you just put the barcode of your ticket it in, like at
Elland Road then you proceed into the ground. We walked through the
concourse which looks like it needs doing up a bit then walked up to our
seats. We were sat in the Upper tier so we got a good view but the seating
is very steep like at Preston.
away from the ground was not too bad. There was a huge police
presence though and it caused a lot of traffic around the ground. Was back
home for 4 o’clock which is unusual for a Saturday.
Was a good day overall despite the result and other results went our way as well. Would definitely go again!
