    From The North
    Leave the M40 at Junction 14 and follow A452 towards Leamington. You will cross a small roundabout and at the next take the 2nd exit (signposted Leamington A452/Heathcote Industrial Estate). You will reach another roundabout where this time you take the 4th exit (signposting Bishop's Tachbrook/Harbury). So straight across the traffic lights proceeding towards Harbury. After about another mile and a half, you will reach the entrance to the ground on your left.

    From The South
    Leave the M40 at Junction 13 and take the A452 towards Leamington. At the next roundabout take the 3rd exit (signposted Leamington A452/Heathcote Industrial Estate). Then as North.

    Car Parking
    There is a fair sized car park at the ground, which holds 350 cars and is free. Please make sure though that for the bigger games that you arrive at the ground early, as once this car park is full there is no street parking available near to the stadium.

    Take great care at the stadium entrance. Harbury Lane is a fast road with many cars overtaking so look BOTH ways when you exit at the end of the match.

    By Train
    Leamington Spa Railway Station is located around three miles away from the ground, so really too far to walk. The station is served by trains from Birmingham New Street, Birmingham Moor Street, London Marylebone and Reading. The Club have been experimenting in running a double decker bus operated by Ridleys, making two return journeys between the railway Station and ground at a cost of £2 return. Check the Leamington FC website for availability and departure times. The Supporters Brakes Trust, runs a 16 seater minibus for home matches that picks up at various points around Warwick and Leamington Spa, including Leamington Railway Station. All supporters are welcome and there is only a small charge for using it (£2 each way). Further details including pick up times can be found on the Brakes Trust website Otherwise it may be best to take a taxi to the ground and then book one for your return.

    Inside the ground is the Brakes Bar which is normally open to all fans, unless crowd segregation is in force. Although on the small side, it does employ a fairly effective queueing system. Also on my visit, they had a good range of bottled continental lagers, which were priced reasonably. Otherwise, as I mentioned before the ground is a bit out 'in the sticks' and I didn't come across any pubs near to the ground. Probably the closest country pub is the Leopard Inn, which is located two miles away in Tachbrook (CV33 9RN).

    i believe the '1' of those 6 we won (1-0) was at Chorley where we were very lucky - they had several really good chances one on one with our goalie - the best one when their forward fell over the ball when ha had a free run on the goalie
    So i agree that today's game is a 'must win' (more than most) as the pack are getting nearer and if we don't pick up some away wins we are likely to be ousted from the top 3!

    Seen the team/Back the changes.

    Ainge just wasn't making it happen enough/centre backs were being found out too often by opposition. It will be interesting to see if Burrell uses his skill/speed as an attacking fullback (assuming he is at fullback)
    I've got reservations about Beck due to his (so far) lack of finding space/mobility but i'm happy that he gets a start again ahead of Ainge.

    Generally okay today but given a few scares and should have won more convincingly .Happy that Beck had a good game. McCombe okay but looks slow and might get found wanting in some future games. Nice to see Belshaw save a pen but it was justice because it was never a penalty. Still think Belshaw needs to stop parrying shots and needs to hold them more often.Tough game next week which my give a guide as to how we will finish in the league.

    A season is played over 21 games at home and 21 away, not the last 6. We currently have the second best away record in the league with 9 wins from 15 games.
