Clocking up the miles

Reds fans travelling to all 23 away league games face fewer miles than last season

2 June 2017

Fans will travel 380 miles less than last season during the 2017/18 campaign.

The total mileage of 7,584 for all 23 Sky Bet League Two away games next season is less than Reds fans tallied up during the last campaign. 

Last year fans who followed the side to all of our away league games racked up 7,964 miles - that total was an increase on the previous season's total of 6,836.

The year before in League One saw the mileage total trump all three of those figures, when fans who made every trip to an away league game would have finished the season on 8,045 miles.

The shortest journeys in the division next season are to Wycombe Wanderers' Adams Park (130 mile round trip), Barnet's The Hive (138 mile round trip) and Luton Town's Kenilworth Road (156 mile round trip).

Trips to Carlisle United's Brunton Park (696 mile round trip), Morecambe's Globe Arena (576 mile round trip) and Grimsby Town's Blundell Park (476 mile round trip) represent the longest journeys for fans next season.

The promotion of Lincoln City from the Vanarama National last season means the two sides will face one another for the first time in the club's respective histories, whilst promotion for Forest Green Rovers means the Reds will face the side for the first time in the Football League.

Chesterfield's relegation from League One means the teams will meet for the first time in League Two, whilst the Reds will face Swindon Town and Port Vale for the first time in the division since the 2011/12 campaign.
