Brief Directions by Road: M1 and then M6 to junction 3 and take the A444 towards Nuneaton. Continue towards the town centre after passing the George Eliot Hospital on your left. On reaching a roundabout turn right at 2nd exit onto Avenue Road A254. Continue along this road going across one roundabout (the road becomes Eastborough Road although still the A254) over the railway lines and then a second roundabout (with the Crows Nest pub on your right). At the next roundabout turn left into Townsend Drive (signposted Nuneaton RFC/Attleborough Fields Industrial Estate). Then turn right into Liberty Way for the stadium.
Car Parking: There is car parking available at the ground for £2, but this is limited. The Industrial estate opposite also offers the same deal.
Directions by Train: Nuneaton Railway Station is about a 30 minutes walk from the ground, gotta be a cab ride. The station is served by trains from London Euston.
Eating and Drinking Locally: The Crows Nest on Crowhill Way is the nearest pub to the ground and is a good 10 minute walk away. The Acorn is another safe bet. Question: Why did the Triton Shower Arena snack bar throw lots of pies away last week? Answer: Because there was Nuneaton.
Social Club: Although the Football Club does have a bar, it is only available to away fans when games are not segregated. The Rugby Club adjacent to the ground has its own Clubhouse which can be accessed from the Liberty Way car park and welcomes away fans.
Admission Prices: Adults £12, Concessions £3.
Previous Meetings and Memories: We have pitted our wits against the original Nuneaton Borough dozens of times since the mid sixties, the highlights? A vital 2-0 (Tony O'Hare and George Cleary) win away in the Southern League Premier in April 1979 which started an end of season mini run of five wins and two draws in nine games which effectively won the club a place in the newly formed Alliance Premier League by finishing 13th.
