An offer not to be refused at Meadow Lane

The Jimmy Sirrell Stand at Meadow Lane Notts County

With just a trio of grounds left to tick off his 92 blogger Michael Pilcher heard Notts County’s call for a 12th man. Under new ownership and management the Pies were eager for a bumper crowd for a relegation 6 pointer and had an offer to boot to entice the fans back to Meadow Lane… Ground 90/92: Meadow Lane Notts County 2 – 1 Cheltenham Town 11/02/2017 Back in August I ticked the City Ground off my 92, and had to walk straight past neighbouring Meadow Lane en route to Forest from the train station. It was still on my ‘to do’… Read more »

For the majority of clubs that fall out of the Football League a return is often a tall order, especially in the first season. Step forward Cheltenham Town, who under the wise stewardship of Gary Johnson bounced back in some style. Ahead of the start of the season we caught up with blogger and Robins fan Mark Halliwell.

A trip across the bridge for Adam Thurston as he heads to Newport to Rodney Parade as the Robin’s fly into town. Ground: Rodney Parade 8/92 Game: Newport County 1-1 Cheltenham Town Date: 13/03/2015 Thoughts on the ground: Onto my second League Two game of this season, both involving the red and white’s of Cheltenham Town. They’ve had a very disappointing season thus far and there is definitely a lot of room for improvement. The home game vs. Bury last month showed that they could battle but they didn’t have that cutting edge to prevent a 2-1 home defeat. Their… Read more »

Since our last blog on the issue the clubs have voiced opposition to the FA’s plans to introduce a new League 3 to aid the fortunes of the England team.

To find out a bit more about how it could affect the supporters of the clubs we catch up with exiled Scotsman and Cheltenham Town fan Dave Nelson. Groundsman: Initially, what are your thoughts on the FA’s proposal to bring in B teams to the lower leagues? Dave: When I… Read more »
