Using the train?
As this is a midweek fixture this is not an option as the last London bound train off Accrington is at 20:21hrs. For anyone travelling up by rail the best route is from Euston changing at Preston. Journey time is a little over 3 hours. Accrington station is about a mile away from the ground – walking time around 20 minutes.
Facilities for away fans
The capacity is 5,057 with seating for 2,000. Visitors are mostly housed in the Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground. This can hold up to 1,800 fans after this area was recently extended. In addition some seats are available in the Whinney Hill Stand. This has a mixture of seating and terrace and has the benefit of some cover, unlike the Coppice Terrace which is open to the elements. The official ASFC programme, containing all latest news, interviews, features and reports is available around the ground priced £3.
Facilities around the ground
The club website says that the Accrington Stanley Sports Bar located in the Blackrock EMI (Jack Barrett) Stand offers a warm welcome to all home and away supporters. The bar offers draft lager, draft cider and all standard pub drinks along with a selection of pies, plus it shows live sport on the big screens pre and post-match. The nearest pub is “The Crown”, which is just behind the ground on the main Whalley Road. Another option is to go from the ground to the main road and head towards the town centre where you will find “The Grey Horse” PH. Opposite is the Oaklea Fish and Chip shop. This area is also good for street parking.
