1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground?

I had never been to Adams Park before and seeing the reviews on this website it was all positive. I didn't want to miss the opportunity to see my team play there. I've heard great things about the club and wanted to check it out for myself.

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

Me and my mate travelled up on the supporters coaches so it was very easy. Left Dean Court about midday (after a cracking fry up!) and watched the Norwich/Arsenal match on the way. Parked just outside the ground so didn't have any distance at all to walk.

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

Usual stuff really, grabbed a programme (special mention goes to the stewards and programme sellers, they were the friendliest I've ever come across at an away game), saw the cherries team coach arrive and then made our way into the ground.

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

The ground is great, set on the edge on a small industrial estate but benefiting from rolling hills all around which gives a fantastic view (especially from the away end). The first thing you see is the top of the 2 tiered Frank Adams stand which is really impressive. Away fans are housed in the Dreams stand which offers fantastic views on the action with no supporting pillars. Decent leg room (especially as I'm over 6ft 2).

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

Food and drinks inside the stadium were good, as well as the burger van outside!The game was a cracker. The atmosphere was superb from the away end. The official away attendance was about 900 but it seemed an awful lot more. The home terrace opposite had the drum going as well so it made for some decent noise. The game itself was very close. Bournemouth went ahead with a good finish from Marc Pugh. Luckily for us Wycombe missed a penalty in front of us to keep the game at 1-0. That's the way it finished thanks to some back to the wall defending. We held on to claim the 3 points.

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

As has been mentioned on here before, it does take a little bit of time to get away from the ground purely because there is just one road in and out of the area around the stadium. Wasn't an issue though, back on the coach and reading the programme.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

A fantastic club to visit, great staff, nice fans and a fantastic stadium. Next time we are in the same league, I'll be going back! Would recommend to all! ...oh and the result was the icing on the cake!
