The J Davidson Stadium, Altrincham, WA15 8AP
Red & White
Phil Parkinson has been at the helm here since April 2017 after a spell in charge of Nantwich.
He enjoyed a youth career at Crewe Alexandra which was followed by spells at Reading, Port Vale and Northwich Victoria.
BRIEF DIRECTIONS BY ROAD
To get to Altrincham take the M1 and then M6 to Junction 19. Take the A556 signposted Manchester Airport. Pick up the M56 – still signposted Airport – and exit at its Junction 6, taking the A538 signposted Altrincham and Hale Barns.
You will now be on Hale Road where you will pass the Ringway Golf Club. At the traffic lights that cross with the A5144, carry straight on taking the third right into Westminster Road. This becomes Bancroft Road and then Moss Lane for the ground on your right.
BRIEF DIRECTIONS BY TRAIN
Trains from London Euston to Manchester are incredibly quick these days – just over two hours. Altrincham Metrolink Tram Station is served by trams from Manchester Piccadilly, with the journey time being around 30 minutes.
The Arriva bus service 263 and Stagecoach X41 buses also run to the ground from Manchester. The ground is around a 15-20 minute walk away from Altrincham Station – simply walk to your left into Moss Lane and follow it round to the ground.
Street parking will be available near the stadium on matchday.
Moss Lane has been Altrincham’s home since 1910 and it now has a capacity of 6,085.
On 10 July 2013, it was announced that the stadium would be known as The J Davidson Stadium, following a sponsorship agreement with the Club’s main sponsors, J Davidson, scrap metal processors, of Altrincham.
The stadium is made up from a variety of seated stands and terracing, including the Hale End Terrace, Golf Road Terrace, Popular Side Terrace, Main Stand and the Family Stand.
EAT AND DRINK
There is a bar outside the ground called The Community Sports Hall, which should welcome away fans.
Other than that, there is very little on offer which is close to Moss Road – apart from the King George about a 10 minute walk south of the ground.
The town centre offers plenty of scope for refreshment.
PREVIOUS MEETINGS AND MEMORIES
