A few of us making the journey on Saturday, a new ground for us.
A few questions, presumably segregated? Do we get in your clubhouse? No chance of pies, anything better than burgers?
Parking a problem or easy?
Here's to the craic and a good game.
Cheers big ears - Freez

I`m afraid since segregation our clubhouse is for home fans only. There are a couple of pubs near the ground, have a look here. Parking shouldn`t be a problem if your there earlyish, how many do you think you will bring.

thats a good web page.. i wonder who did that...?
if i were you i'd go boozing at the hoy n helmet on the way in, but leave yourself plenty of time for the trek across the island .. it takes longer then it looks on the map.. if you insist on the island experience go to the windjammer

Is the Windjammer near the ground?
Pity about the clubhouse, ours is the same, tho we have been lucky and the last two home games have started segregated but because of lack of away fans the ground has opened up, so a few crept in to the club for a pint beforehand.

Difficult to tell how many we will bring, our away form has been OK, but our home form poor. With you being a new club to us a few may visit for novelty value, could be 70, could be 100 or more or more, depending on which way the wind blows.

Heres hoping for a good game and some banter, will post on our board that the Windjammer is our meeting place, see you there!!!!

15 minute walk? .. plus you can walk along the sea wall and see the sea.. oh hang on your from morecambe arnt you and are probably sick of looking at the sea.. in that case stay down on the road and you wont even know it there, apart from the oil tankers towering over your head...
also if you walk from the 'jammer you arrive at the ground right at the away entrance which save you having to walk around the ground (which takes about 30 seconds)

Will drive to the ground methinks.
We get the open terrace no doubt? We behind a goal or on the side?
Crikey we spoil you giving you a covered end!!!
Almost tropical up here today, you must be roasting down there near the equator?

you get behind the goal at the sea front end. there is no shelter but either has the home end. you get the same area if there was 10 or 1000 of you.

it could be 30 degrees C in the shade and you will still get a chill wind blowing in off the north sea.. .. just count yourself lucky your not on that terrace (well it has nearly 4 steps in places) in mid jan on a tuesday night

your feet will be warm as the ground is so far below sea level the earths crust is only 6 inches thick at the centre circle.. despite this and the thermo nuclear smog cloud the icy nor'wester from denmark will still freeze your bollox..

Deary me how I miss those November Tuesday evenings at Canvey
I took to smoking big cigars to keep the lips thawed out in case of conversational needs
Mind you in October six or seven layers of thermal clothing should easily make the match enjoyable,that is unless that dredger gets stuck again and needs a push-pull in to open waters
Do you all keep the tradition of skinny dipping and are visitors still invited to join in??

In mid winter what is really enjoyable is to buy a coffee whilst watching the game and as you drink it the steam makes coffee flavoured icicles suspending from the nose hairs! they are just great to lick for the second half!!

Had a good day out, nice tidy ground, it didnt rain, had great banter with your fans, a poor game, draw about right, the landlord of the Windjammer is a great character!!!

Which one of the above isn't true?

Thanks again guys see you in January, FA Cup commitments permitting (I wish!!!)

Sorry , I can only accept the answer on the card, and it was the last one.

I posted thinking we should have won, and thought you would feel the same, so therefore a draw was probably right?

Apologies late replying been flying me whippets, just logged on while eating my gravy and before I clock ont down t'pit, best go I'll be late for t'tram and me clogs need rehealing.

Enjoy your pie n mash and jellied eals by the way!!
Love n hugs, your Northern monkey correspondent XX
