The Big Match Preview: Woking vs Wycombe

Chairboys visit Kingfield Stadum on Tuesday evening.

16 July 2019

The Chairboys look to build on their positive start to pre-season with a trip to National League side Woking.

Manager Alan Dowson would have been impressed with his side's display against League One opposition last time out; holding Oxford United to a draw on home turf. Elliott Frear fired the U's into the lead, before striker Jake Hyde levelled proceedings with a timely second half header.

Hyde, nephew of former Chairboys keeper Paul Hyde, recently signed a new contract with the Cards - and played a pivotal role in their promotion to non-league's top flight last term, netting a last minute winner in the play-off semi-final against Wealdstone.

Max Kretzschmar will face the club where he kickstarted his career as a youngster, under the guidance of Richard Dobson. The 25-year-old made 85 appearances and scored eight goals during his nine year spell at Adams Park, and it will be the first time the midfielder has faced the Chairboys since leaving in 2016.

Wycombe were due to debut the new Dormeo-sponsored change kit for Saturday's match with Brentford, but will now wear it for this evening's fixture at Woking's request.


Prices are as follows.

Adults: £10

Concessions: £5

Juniors (16 and under): £3

This is pay on the turnstiles on the day of the match.


Using the car? Here are the directions

Leave the M25 at Junction 11 and take the A317 and then the A320 towards Woking. Continue on the A320 through Woking town centre. After passing a hospital on your left you will come to a fork in the road, where you want to leave the A320 and branch left into Claremont Road towards Old Woking (A247). At the bottom of Claremont Road turn left onto the A247 Kingfield Road and the entrance to the ground is down on the right.

Suggested car parking

There is no parking available as such at the ground or on the immediate streets nearby. So if intending to street park then it needs to be quite a way from the ground. There is the Woking Leisure Centre which is opposite the entrance to the ground and is free to park in for up to three hours. Otherwise, a 15 minute walk away from the ground (and well signposted) around the town centre there are a number of car parks including the Heathside Crescent multi-storey car park (GU22 7AG).

Facing taking the train?

Woking Railway Station is about a mile away from Kingfield Stadium and is around a 20 minute walk, although it is well signposted. The station is served by trains from London Waterloo.

Exit the station on the opposite side of the station to the town (Station Approach/Oriental Road side). Turn Right down Station Approach and at the bottom, turn left onto Claremont Road (the A320). At the end of Claremont Road turn left on Kingfield Road and the ground is over the road on your right.

Spare time before or after the match?

The nearest pub to the ground is the Kingfield Arms. It is located about 300 meters from the ground down Kingfield Road towards Old Woking. The landlord is friendly and caters for Football fans. There are three television screens which show Sky Sports'.

Otherwise, you can take the ten-minute walk into Woking town centre, where there are an array of pubs to be found including a Wetherspoons outlet, called the Herbert Wells on Chertsey Road, which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Towards the town centre on the Guildford Road (A320) is the 'The Sovereigns' which is an Ember Inn.
