Brief Directions by Road:
The M3 and onto the M27 signposted Portsmouth and exit at Junction 5 signposted Eastleigh. Rather confusingly you will see the stadium to your left but continue on as there is no left turn into Stoneham Lane from this direction. When you reach a roundabout go back on yourself as if to the M27 again and when you reach the Concorde Club on your left turn right into Stoneham Lane for the ground.
There is a good sized car park at the ground which holds 500 cars and is free.
The supporters’ coach will leave The Hive at 10:00 with earlier pick up points at Potters Bar Station, Barnet (three separate places), Whetstone and Edgware starting at 09:00. The price is £23 return. For further information on the Bees Travel Club, please call the ticket office on 020 8381 3800 and select option one or visit The Hive in person.
Directions by Train and Plane:
The closest station to the stadium is Southampton Airport Parkway, which about a twenty minute walk to the ground. Southampton Airport Parkway station is served by trains from London Waterloo. South West Trains are offering a brilliant special offer on their trains at the moment – check here for a train from Waterloo to Eastleigh for £15 return and £7 for kids. From Eastleigh Bus Station you can catch the Blue Star number 2 service towards Southampton City Centre, which passes near to the stadium. Southampton Airport is very close and will accept private jets by appointment.
Eating and Drinking Locally:
The supporters’ bar at the ground is called The Spitfire and away fans are made welcome. Another option is the Concorde Club on Stoneham Lane, Eastleigh, SO50 9HQ just north of the ground. Otherwise The Cricketers on Chestnut Avenue is the only other watering hole close by. Opposite Eastleigh Station is the local Wetherspoons outlet called the Wagon Wheel.
Adults £12, Concessions £7.50, U16s £4.
Previous Meetings and Memories:
We have only ever played Eastleigh once and that was earlier this season when an on loan Sam “Bob” Hoskins goal was enough in a 1-0 win.
