    By Car

    From the South
    Leave the A1(M) at Junction 60 and take the A689 towards Bishop Auckland. At the next roundabout take the third exit onto the A167, still going towards Bishop Auckland. At the next roundabout, take the first exit signposted Kirk Merrington. At the end of this road after passing the Half Moon pub on your left, you will reach a junction where you turn left and then at the T-Junction (with the Fox and Hounds Inn in front of you), turn right. At the next roundabout take the first exit towards Spennymoor. At the next roundabout, which is the junction with the A688, take the third exit towards the town centre. At the next roundabout take the third exit onto the High Street.and then just before the pedestrian area turn left. At the mini roundabout take the first exit onto Durham Road. After passing the Moor Tavern on your left, the entrance to the ground is the third road up on the left.

    Car Parking

    There is no parking for visiting supporters at the ground, however, there is street parking in the area or you can use one of the town centre car parks. Parking at the ground is currently for players and officials with limited disabled supporter parking which must be booked prior to the fixture date by contacting Steven Lawson on 07871206474 or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

    Supporters are strongly advised to use public transport or utilise car sharing and give themselves plenty of time for travel.  Supporters are requested to respect the surrounding areas and show consideration to neighbouring residents. The local police teams may ticket cars that are illegally or inconsiderately parked.

    Durham Road and Wood Vue tend to be very congested on match days so we the Club recommend that away supporters use the main Car Park behind the Town Hall or the Leisure Centre, which is a short walk from the ground. Parking is free. Don’t, however, use the Iceland / Home Bargains car park as you are liable to get a fine after a couple of hours.

    Away coaches will drop supporters off at The Moors Tavern, which is open from 11am and then be sent away to park at the council offices at Green lane, Spennymoor, DL16 6JQ which is only one mile away for the coaches to drive. For coach parking: please contact Steven Lawson on 07871206474

    By Train
    There is no railway station in Spennymoor itself. The nearest is Durham Railway Station: which is just over six miles away. Either take a taxi or you can catch Bus Service No: 6 which runs a regular service from Durham Bus Station along Durham Road, past the Spennymoor Town ground. The bus takes around 20 minutes to make the journey. See the Arriva website [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] timetables and more details. Durham Railway Station is well served by trains from London Kings Cross, Newcastle, Liverpool Lime Street and Birmingham New Street.
    Booking train tickets in advance will normally save you money! Find train times, prices and book tickets with Trainline. Visit the Trainline website below to see how much you can save on the price of your tickets:

    Where to eat & drink:

    To the north of the Main Stand is the supporters’ Marquee which serves alcohol. This facility which is operated by the Ramside Hall Hotel also offers food which is of high quality by normal football ground standards. It welcomes visiting supporters and is also family friendly as long as youngsters are accompanied by an adult. The Marquee Bar opens at 1:30pm for Saturday afternoon kick offs.

    A few minutes’ walk away along Durham Road (going towards the town centre) is the Moors Tavern, which is a community pub that has an affiliation with the football club. Again family friendly it has the added benefit of showing Sky Sports.

    If you continue along Durham Road into the town centre a further two minute walk will have you pass the Spennymoor Working Mens Club in King Street. If you then turn right into Cheapside will find a Wetherspoons pub called 'The Grand Electric Hall' which is located on Cheapside. Apart from offering the usual Wetherspoons fayre, it is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Almost opposite the Grand Electric Hall is the Penny Gill a rock themed pub that welcomes away fans.

    Hope to be doing this by public transport (like my Southport visit, although without the overnight stop!). Train to Durham from Leeds. Bit of sightseeing, and a bite of lunch and then the number 6 bus to the ground. Or a taxi if I am really feeling flush! Missed the BPA, delighted with the win on Saturday. We do seem to be struggling a bit, but still picking up the points, which is vital. Salford may pip us to the title but if we finish second I think we would only have to play one match at home in the play offs. Is this correct?

    Play off quarter finals ..4th. v 7th and 5th v 6th.
    Play off semi finals...2nd v 5th/6th and 3rd v 4th/7th
    Promotion Final will be at a neutral ground unless the League decide otherwise.
    All games are one-off matches with extra time and penalties if required.

    Think whoever finishes 2nd is Home to the winner of 4v7 and 3rd is Home against winner of 5v6, so if you don’t win the league you want to be 2nd or 3rd meaning only 2 games to win for promotion, advantage of finishing 2nd is you play at home in playoff final if you get there.

    Pretty sure playoff final is played at the ground of whichever participating team finishes highest in the league.

    Back to the main theme, I think we can expect a very tough match against the Moors on their sloping Brewery Field pitch. They are a hard - working skillful side with an experienced and successful manager in Jason Ainsley. Look how well they have adapted to this league after promotion. It will be a really strong test for Town.

    Got to say, this is a fantastic bit of business by Simon and the club. Just the signing we needed. This definately shows the clubs intent. Can’t wait to see him in the Harrogate kit, hopefully at Spennymoor on Saturday. Big Big signing indeed. Welcome to the club Mark.

    This is fantastic news. We have been lacking a very tall, successful striker for many years (remember Mark Smith and what he achieved for us?). Let's have some appreciation on here for this tremendous coup. Good luck Mark.

    Well the two week break really didn’t help us unfortunately. We were beaten by a hungrier side today, in probably our hardest looking fixture in the build up to Xmas + New Year fixtures. There were quite a few not at the races today. Not into naming names, but the Manager will know and the players will. I think we are desperate for Ainge + Parker to return, and with Beck + Kerry almost ready to return, then certain players must be aware. When in possession of the shirt, you should be busting a gut to retain it. Enough said, we move on and hopefully get back on track next week at the CNG.

    That was a load of garbage!
    2nd best from the 1st min to the last.
    How Leesley was not substituted i don't know. He has been poor for a few weeks and has become a liability.
    The defence is becoming a shambles and needs sorting quickly. We are still taking too much time messing about passing the ball sidewards and backwards.
    Falkingham was the only one who could pass the ball and stood head and shoulders above anyone else in our team..
    We did have quite a few chances to score but lacked the ability to finish. Nice to see Thewlis finally had some time on the pitch. We need our injured players back as soon as possible and i think we should start scoring again more frequently. Must say we did not look any fitter than them even though we are full time.

    Came back pretty disheartened today especially with all our nearest competitors making up 3 points on us. It was a good quality game but on the day we were definitely second best. With ball at foot we looked good but had too many players who could not match the tempo of their performance. Each of our back four, maybe except Kennedy, were breached several times. I had previously thought that our defence was the rock of the team but they seem to have been found out recently. We badly miss Parker based on his form this season.
    I've had doubts about Leesley the past few weeks, but then thought 'who could do better' but now I'm thinking that Weaver now has a big dilemma with Leesley's form which is not the standard required at this level - we rely on him to get good balls into the area and not to get caught out in possession as often as he does.
    Maybe I'm stating the obvious - but if all our players played in their positions as well as Falkingham does his (ie out of their skins), we would no doubt, imvho, still be top of the league!
