AFC Rushden & Diamonds will play their next away league game of the 2017-18 campaign in the EVO-STIK League South, East when they visit Fleet Town on Saturday afternoon (KO 3pm).
Local directions provided by the club are as follows “The ground is situated next to Calthorpe Park and is accessed via driveway on Crookham Road, Fleet. Postcode GU51 5FA also includes some nearby residential roads, make sure you are looking for Crookham Road in Sat Nav. From London and the North travel via M3, exit at junction 4a, follow signs into Fleet (Town Centre), past Railway station and into town, continue along Fleet Road to the major crossroads by Oatsheaf public house. Carry on across lights into Crookham Road, follow road down hill, the entrance road is on right, just past Glen Road (on the left), the club has its own car park, but if this is full, please use suitable road parking away from the ground or town centre public car park, not in front of residential properties in the entrance road.”
Getting there by public transport is fairly straightforward as the ground is close to Fleet Town centre – although a local bus #10 from the station may be of benefit – see traveline.info for door to door directions.
