The Spitfires travel to Sutton United this weekend in the National League – and with coach travel for just £2 per person, a bumper away following is set to descend on south London.
Here are all the need-to-knows for those making the 75-mile journey to Gander Green Lane…
Getting to the ground
According towww.suttonunited.net/stadium/, by car:
“Travel along the M25 to junction 8. Then north on the A217 for about 15-20 minutes. Ignoring signs for Sutton itself, stay on the A217 to the traffic lights by the Gander Inn (on the left), turn right into Gander Green Lane. The Borough Sports Ground is about 200 yards up this road on the left-hand side – if you reach West Sutton station you have gone too far.”
“On match days for the 2017-18 season, the club car park is for car park ticket holders only. Parking is available on local side streets (please park considerately) and in town centre car parks a 5-10 minute walk away from the ground.”
West Sutton railway station is adjacent to the ground.
