    Contacts/Directions:
    The Chigwell Construction Stadium
    Victoria Road
    Dagenham
    RM10 7XL
    Telephone: 0208 592 1549

    By Car
    Via A1(M), A1, M11
    At the end of the M11 continue onto the A406 towards Docklands (A13) and London City Airport. At the intersection with the A13, turn onto this road in the direction of the Dartford Crossing. At the junction with the A1306, leave the A13 and join the A1306 towards Dagenham. At the third set of traffic lights turn left just before the McDonalds into Ballards Road. At the end of this road you will come to a large roundabout, (known as the Bull roundabout, after the public house of the same name) at which you turn left, into Rainham Road. Proceed up Rainham Road passing Dagenham East tube station on the left and Victoria Road is a quarter of a mile further on, on the same side of the road.

    Car Parking
    There is no parking available at the ground itself. However there is plenty of street parking, some of which is available on the main Rainham road.

    By Train
    Take the District Line to Dagenham East (and not Dagenham Heathway). Turn left as you come out of the station and the ground is clearly sign posted and only five minutes’ walk away. Please note that the journey by tube from Central London can take around 45 minutes. Neil Le Milliere adds; 'The tube journey out there can be a bit of a nightmare and it's probably better to get a train from Fenchurch St to Barking Station and then a tube to Dagenham from there'. Oyster & Travelcards are valid for this journey.

    There is a fair sized Social Club at the ground, which apart from a few high profile games, welcomes away supporters and costs 50p to enter. It is fairly basic, but comfortable and shows SKY Sports television. The beer is reasonably priced with hand pulled Youngs Bitter available, as well as real ale in bottles from the Three Daggers Brewery. Inside the ground, alcohol is available to away supporters in the A13 Steel Stand.

    If it is a pub that you prefer, then near Dagenham East Underground Station is the Pipe Major. This Marston's pub was opened in 2015 and is proving popular with away fans due to its proximity to the station. The pub serves real ale and also offers food. Going further along Rainham Road, going past Golds Gym is the Eastbrook.

    Prices:
    2018/19 Admission Prices

    Seating
    Adults - £21
    Over 65s - £15
    Students - £15
    Juniors (10-16) - £12

    (Information for Harrogate Town fans)

    Harrogate Town supporters will be housed in the A13 Steel Stand
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    Entry is via turnstiles 9-11 which are accessed via the rear of the main car park or through the gates from Pondfield Park to the rear of the ground.
    As you go through the main entrance, walk straight on through the car park, past the supporters club to the right, and then walk along the back of the Main Stand. The entrance is down on the right at the corner of the ground. Away coaches are brought in at the back of the away section but on the other side of a park, which can make for an interesting walk especially if it is a night match.

    Turnstiles will open at 1.45pm.

    Decided to go at last minute to the game. Wish i hadn’t.
    We’ve become a long ball team and lost all ideas on how to score. 1st half was diabolical effort by us and deserved to be 2goals down. Management need bollocking for allowing us to become like that. Something must have happened in dressing room at half time because we changed and started to play on ground more and Falks played higher up the pitch which made us play better. I thought at the end of the game we deserved to have won.
    Things need to change!
    The passing is not good. Howe must stop pumping high balls up to the front men because it’s giving the ball away 90 percent of the time. Beck is flicking the ball on at times and no one is remotely reading where the ball is going. Still think complacenty is setting in and needs addressing!
    Thomson gives the ball away with careless passing too much and Leesley just does not want to go where he might get hurt.
    If things don’t change then we will end up mid table and we really deserve to be up there with the promotion teams at the end of season. Nearly forgot to mention Burrells passing at times is very very poor. Think the whole team needs to practice passing to someone in amber and black along the ground which is a good starting point.
    Things needs to get back to how they were!!!!

    Well my take on the game was that we made many errors and didn't deserve to win (dagenham had lost their last 5 league games). Even the usually reliable Belshaw made no effort to stretch his hands up for the first goal lob.
    An excellent goal from leesley - but would he have been allowed to weave through a top defence at will ? No matter, credit where credit deserved. However, we just dont seem to be able to create many chances and are lacking a striker with x factor magic. Beck tried hard and in this one match rose to successfully head the ball more than he had done all season.
    Emmett, although not playing badly, has been a bit quiet the last few games. He doesn't get involved as much as he ought to. Could this be because we have so many big egos around the middle of the field and he gets somewhat eclipsed. I'm starting to wonder if his qualities would be better used back on the wing using his speed to the corner then despatching aerial ctosses into the box creating opportunities we are not creating at the moment (we are hardly short of midfielders).
    If we do finish mid table - and i fear that is where we may be headed - it would still be a great achievement by the lads and considered, by me anyway, to have been a successful season.

    Our managers post game interview seems to totally disregard how poor we were in the 1st half. Generally think he’s honest but not this time.

    Beginning to look like we’ve been “Found Out”!
    The opposition are forcing us to play the ball long then winning it back in the AIR in our midfield area!
    Happened a few times last season this!
    And was always likely to become a bigger problem for us this season due to the number of % sides in this league!!
    The Management team can see it happening
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    Could this become a recurring theme for the rest of our season though?
    scratch
    To be fair everyone from Harrogate could see we were still in the “Hotel” for long periods of the 1st half yesterday!!!!
    But you’re not going to want to advertise that fact to Barrow for Tuesday night r u
    silent
    Although better second half, you’re not going to pick up many points in this league if you give the opposition a 2 goal lead, which could have been 3 if it wasn’t for Belshaw!!!!!!

    Wasn't at the game (watched our under 17s against Leicester City) but listened to the commentary.  Having listened to Jack Muldoon and Simon, they seemed to echo my thoughts.  Simon is always honest in his interviews and yesterday's was no different.
    First half seemed non eventful and quite even up until their two goal flurry.  Second half was one way traffic with us creating so many chances and their keeper having a blinder.
    Interesting difference of opinion on here.

    But my thoughts are with the family at Leicester City, the Brighton supporter who died at their game yesterday and Glenn Hoddle.
    Yesterday was a bad day.

    Going purely by the NLP stats I would have thought we were much the better team except that we failed to take chances. Shots on target; D & R 3, TOWN
    9; shots off target D & R 3, TOWN 8; corners D & R 5, TOWN 12; yellow cards D & R 4, TOWN 0. But, as a wise man once said, statistics can be made to prove anything. With 2 potentially winnable home games this week we should get a clearer indication of where we are likely to end up. Halifax were briefly top of the league but are now 14th!.

    We badly needed a goal second half and apparently applied constant pressure. Why not bring on Williams rather than Agnew?

    Agnew?  scratch  We only used one substitute on Saturday & that was Muldoon for Thewliss in the 18th minute of the 1st half!

    My mistake. Still not sure why we didn't bring Williams on in the search for a goal.
