    North via A19 going through Tyne Tunnel. Stay on A19, join A189 (Spine Road) at the Annitsford Roundabout. After two miles exit onto the A1061 (signed A192 Seaton Delaval, Cramlington and Blyth Beach. Follow the A1061 for approximately three miles and exit left onto the A193. Turn right at the second roundabout onto Plessey Road. The ground will be on your left.

    By Train

    The nearest railway station is Cramlington, which is served by trains from Newcastle Central and Morpeth. However, Cramlington is located five miles away from Croft Park and a taxi from here will cost you approximately £11.50 (Phoenix Taxis). You can also take an X9 bus half hourly from Cramlington to Blyth, this takes approximately 40 minutes. An alternative might be to get off at Newcastle Central Station and take a 20 minute walk to Haymarket Bus Station and take an X10/X11 to Blyth. This journey takes roughly 1 hour. See the Traveline North East website for more details.

    Not much good for the public transport user! Let's have Guiseley, Farsley, Shaw Lane even Halifax in our league please. And Scarborough

    I suppose public transport on a Bank Holiday wouldn’t be the best anyway!
    Embarassed
    At least York City fans will be able to take advantage of the public transport to Harrogate in September!!!
    They reckon between 800 & a 1000 are coming through on the train!!!!

    Last August bank holiday I thought I had allowed ample time to make the relatively easy bus+train trip to Halifax. However, the road chaos caused mainly by the Leeds Festival was so bad that the bus did not reach Leeds station until kick off time! If we go up, the National League as it stands has little to offer supporters going to away matches by train - no clubs in the Manchester area, for example, as there are in National North. "Cheap day return to Dover, please."

    Away Travel offers you the beauty of jumping on a coach at Harrogate Town FC and then dropped off at the other ground.

    Oh dear! Town are top and Kirkstall Flyer is slipping down the table, not good enough. Anyway I'll miss Saturday (gutted!) but I'm going for broke: 3 -1 to Town, Jordan the goalscorer and over 800 at the CNG. 8 points in the bag I think!

    International weekend with England playing Friday so hopefully we'll have a decent crowd.

    Great day yesterday. Seeing 30+ Town fans, along with spectators, enjoying a game of footy on the beach was fantastic.

    Brilliant result too.
