    Parking
    A small amount of parking is available at the Clarence Road entrance if not the station car park can be used or surrounding roads but please do not block driveways and be aware of local parking restrictions.


    By train:
    The nearest station is St Albans City, which is served by Thameslink trains from St Pancras and further south of London. Slow trains from London normally terminate at St Albans but fast trains go on to Luton or Bedford. The station is about a 5-10 minute walk away from the Clarence Park ground.

    On coming out of the main station entrance (on the east side), turn left along Station Way. At the top of this road turn right into Hatfield Road. Go down to the traffic lights (where the Crown pub can be seen on one corner) and turn left into Clarence Road and then left again for the ground entrance. You may be interested to note the cricket pavilion on your right.

    Alternatively, from the traffic lights, you could enter Clarence Park and take a short cut directly to the turnstiles. Brian Scott has informed me that on his visit in September 2017 that he noticed that a new entrance to Clarence Park is being made in Hatfield Road up near the railway bridge at the top of Station Way. If this is open on your visit it will be an even quicker walk.

    Guidance for the use of flags at Clarence Park
    Clarence Park upholds the highest standards of Health and Safety. The following guidance is in line with the stadium’s grounds regulations.

    We know that many supporters like to display flags at football matches and Clarence Park will always be as accommodating as possible.

    Flags are not generally confiscated, however, flags are prohibited from the West (Main) Stand Complex also the obstruction of gangways, access routes, exits and entrances, health and safety signage, advertising boards and stairways is strictly forbidden – In the event of an emergency we must have all access and exit points clear.

    St Albans City Football Club reserves the right to confiscate flags if they are very large or may compromise public safety, obscure someone’s view, a camera position or if a flag carries offensive, discriminatory or inflammatory messaging.



    Flagpoles greater than 1m in length will not allowed.

    Any articles that could potentially be used as a weapon and/or compromise public safety are strictly prohibited.

    Permission must be sought in advance from the Club to arrange use of the very large supporter flags that are designed to be passed over people’s heads. In such cases the flag must be flame retardant and the organiser bringing the flag into the stadium will need to provide the appropriate H&S certification.

    Entry to the Ground shall constitute acceptance of the Ground Regulations.

    If this one finishes level at the end of the game will it be a replay or extra time and penalties?

    Hi all,

    Saints fan in peace here.

    The best place place for a pre match beer/real ale is the mermaid on Hatfield, Rd where they also serve brilliant homemade pie and mash and other home cooked food. Just down the road from the train station although there is Crown PH which just a short walk from the ground. Also at the ground I believe we are now selling ale from our local brewery three brewers, i'm sure the club will be grateful for your custom.

    Hope you enjoy your day with us.

    It will be fascinating to see how Conference North matches up to Conference South.

    This will be a harder game than Wrexham, who weren't really bothered.

    I think after our (reported - I didn't go) performance at Nuneaton, we ought to be bothered and need to get back to winning ways before the now hugely immense game at Salford next week (weather permitting). However, If we perform well but lose, that might be a blessing in disguise as surely this season is our best chance ever of getting into the national league and we don't want a cup run to distract us from that goal, do we ? We won't get a better chance of promotion imvho ie this year there is no team in our league a class above the rest, unlike the last 2 years - Solihull and fylde!

    was i just in a bad mood or was that a dire performance ? i left 5 mins before the end so missed the equaliser but saw enough tocome to the opinion that based on that performances and other recent form we will not come in the 1st 3 and we'll get knocked out in the 1st qualifying round of playoffs. there seemed to be no set plan - in 2nd half kennedy was forever hoofing it upfield into no mans land - btw i have a lot pf time for kennedy normally. i have to say that based on our performances since november we've been overrating our potential.
    but sport is full of surprises and maybe yet we can still surpass what we are currently promising before the season ends.

    Have to agree since Becks arrival we have reverted to the long ball more than before - even when he is not playing - must be the style in training. Wish we could get back to the style that we played at the beginning of the season with it all on the deck and then the form will return.

    Really poor again today. Started 1st 15 mins okay then garbage. Our midfield without Falkingham is very negative except Jack who tries to break forward. Thomson should be given another chance because he's got to be better than some playing today. Ainge needed that 90 mins to knock the rust off but was offside a few times as usual. We are playing too many long balls again and the ball is coming straight back.Hope the injuries we had today are not serious because we need to be near full strength on Tuesday to get through to the last 16. Finally i think we had about only one shot at goal 2nd half and we equalised which is no where good enough.

    Bar on impossible to play that bad again on Tuesday! Fully expect us to win against what will be a tired part time side on a surface there not used to playing on ( not in a arrogant way but we have to use what we have at our advantage) no excuses, neither keeper had anything to do apart from pick the ball out of there respective nets today, real poor game lacking in quality throughout, Tuesday has to be a improvement, although based on today anything over £10 to get in I shall not be attending!

    Before this week Salford took 2 points from a possible 12. Brackley went 4 games without a win and Blyth took 3 points from a possible 12.
    We took 9 points from a possible 12. It's not just us!

    Is the game at risk even tho it’s still forecast to go ahead. Steady snow forecast most of the night.

    What a terrific 90 mins of footy we got from 2 sides played in arctic conditions. We were unrelenting in the 2nd half and could have had at least 3 more goals. Good to see Thomson get 90 mins and playing well. He put in some cracking crosses and fully deserved his goal. Both Jack and Falkingham had good games and no booking for Falkingham which is a bonus. Think we rested some players but they must wonder if they will get back in. Almost forgot to mention Knowles who looks as if he's ready to get a bag full of goals now clear again of injuries.

    Knowles was superb tonight and looked like the player we signed a few years ago. Hope he can stay clear of injuries now.

    Just what we needed going into the Salford game - a performance full of skill and endeavour, good FOOTball build-up and, often incisive finishing.
    It was always going to be difficult for part-timers, long journeyed St Albans (btw - unlucky not to win the first game) to match us, but they gave their all, have some very skilful players and contributed immensely to an excellent match - i only felt cold at half-time !

    I just hope we can bottle that performance and sprinkle it over the rest of the season, starting with a big dollop on Saturday.
