Away day guide: Cambridge United

All you need to know if you're going to the Good Friday game

27 March 2018

A visit to the Cambs Glass Stadium is next up for the Reds as we head to the home of Cambridge United on Good Friday (3pm).

Our previous visits to Cambridge have seen a mixed bag of results. The Reds picked up three points back in August 2015 in the first Football League meeting between the teams but we lost there last April.

Our victory came courtesy of a Roarie Deacon brace and a Gwion Edwards goal as Reds triumphed 3-0 to give Mark Yates his first win as manager.

Our fans will be housed in the Marstons Smooth Stand situated at one end of the ground. The stand can house up to 1,600 seated supporters in an all covered area of the stadium.

If you’ve been to the ground before then you’ll be pleased to know that the ‘legendary’ bacon rolls have returned, with all the other classic concourse choices on offer as well such as, burgers, pies and hot dogs.

Time for a drink? The supporters club is located at the ground and charges £2 to enter as well as serving food inside. Dependent on the numbers inside you may be turned away.

The Wrestlers pub is the best bet for a pre-match pint situated on Newmarket Road, the establishment also offer Thai food. Other than that, your best bet will be to head to the centre of Cambridge before setting off for the stadium, which is a 40-minute walk away.

If you’re arriving via the train then the Abbey Stadium is just over two miles away, so a taxi will be your best bet, although there is a good local bus service outside the station.

The 1105 from Three Bridges gets to Cambridge at 1330 involving a walk from St Pancras International to Kings Cross to pick up the 1244 service. Coming back, the 1747 from Cambridge gets you into Three Bridges at 2002, via the 1912 from St Pancras.

Looking to join the travelling fans on the supporters’ coach? GH coaches leave at 10:30am from the Checkatrade Stadium, with the trip costing £15.
