Dom Betts Away day planner

Dom returns with hints, tips and tricks for getting on the road (or train tracks) – here’s how to follow Fulham away in August.

This month sees two away games – a taste of Yorkshire and our nation’s capital. Both are good for different reasons. Here’s what you need to know.

First up we travel to the John Smiths Stadium. A proper northern away day.

Trains (although I assume most who are interested in going have bought them already):

Adult – £87.10

Adult (With Railcard) – £57.35

Child – £43.55

Where to park:

There is a fair sized car park located at the ground, which costs £6.

Where to drink:

  1. The Boy and Barrell Inn, 11-15 Beast Market, Huddersfield HD1 1QF
    This pub had a great pre- and post-match atmosphere last time we went up to Huddersfield on a Saturday. Would highly recommend.
  2. The Cherry Tree, 14-18 John William St, Huddersfield HD1 1BA
    A Wetherspoons outlet a short walking distance from the station, however in our 4-1 win back in 2017 home fans weren’t allowed, so unless you’re looking for some food I’d head elsewhere.
  3. The Rope Walk & Grill Bar, Tadium Way, Huddersfield, HD1 6PG
    This is part of the entertainment outlet behind the North Stand, if you fancy something a lot closer to the ground. Being a Greene King Flaming Grill it might be a good choice if you’re looking for some food alongside a few pints
  4. Magic Rock Brewery Taproom, Willow Lane, Huddersfield, HD1 5EB
    For those of you who are partial to a craft beer or five, I’d recommend heading to Magic Rock’s taproom, a must visit while sampling the delights of Huddersfield. There was a good atmosphere in there before our last visit to the John Smith’s Stadium, before Ivan Cavaleiro smashed it top bins.

Our second away of the season is probably my favourite London away game. An evening on the piss around London Bridge, what’s there not to enjoy.


Nearest rail station:

South Bermondsey

Nearest tube stations:

Surrey Quays
Canada Water

Where to park:

Street parking can be found on the small estate on your left just past the ground, otherwise, be wary of on-street parking restrictions around the area of the ground. Check lamp posts for signage. There are no sizeable car parks around the ground

Where to drink:

There are loads of pubs in London Bridge. Take your pick of the variety of great pubs in the vicinity of the station, such as The George Inn, Old Kings Head, Bunch of Grapes and Redwood Sports Bar
