(Doing the 92)

1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

Based in Bridlington, it is very hard to visit teams far away down south but a weekend trip to Salisbury meant potential for a few games. Southampton being very close so another to be ticked off and on my Birthday too!

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

Traffic was terrible getting out of Salisbury but having lived there for 10 years before moving back to my birthplace we knew a shortcut to get to The Saints, we parked nearby ground was easy to find

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?

We had eaten at a pub near Salisbury to celebrate my birthday so no food needed at ground

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?

Very impressive large and modern with an unusual style different from other new stadiums I had visited

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

Atmosphere was top notch we were located at the last row in the noisiest stand full of die hard saints supporters good banter and singing plus we stood all game no problems with stewards with Saints winning great game to watch

6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

A bit crowded getting away but soon on our way back to Salisbury

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Great day visiting my old place birthday meal and watching Saints win another ticked off another ground - 26 now.
