Away Day Guide: Wrexham AFC

  • Men's

As part of our ‘Away Day Guide’ feature for the official website Bromley supporter Will Bains provides us with a fans insight for our trip to Wrexham this coming Saturday, 22nd October.

UPDATE: All Bromley supporters please be aware in remembrance of the tragedy that befell the community of Aberfan, there will be a minute’s silence before tomorrow’s game – Click here for further details 

It’s a trip to Wales for the Bromley faithful this weekend, specifically to the oldest international football stadium in the world (indeed, it has hosted more Wales international games than any other ground).

Despite its somewhat dilapidated appearance these days, I still think it’s worth arriving early at the ground. We had a good chat with one of the stewards last season who also attends Chester games, and he offered us balanced opinions of the fortunes of both sides. The stand behind one of the goals is also a sight to behold, with a vast terrace steeped in history.

For anyone driving up or who doesn’t mind a detour of a train journey, Shrewsbury is well worth a visit. My local contact tells me it has everything you’d want from a market town except a Mexican restaurant, so perhaps don’t head there if you have a craving for a quesadilla. Chester itself is an excellent destination for those travelling by train, although perhaps it’s better to save that one for our game there in a few weeks’ time.

Address

Colliers Park, Chester Rd, Gresford, Wrexham LL12 8PW

Directions

By train: Wrexham General station more or less right next to the ground (exit the station, turn right and the ground is almost directly in front). Fastest trains to Wrexham General run from London Euston with a change at Crewe and/or Chester.

By car: There are two alternatives. You can take either the M6 to junction 10A then the M54 into the A5 and continue round Shrewsbury and past Oswestry. Follow signs to Wrexham onto the A483. Exit at junction 5, turn right at the roundabout onto Mold Road and the ground is visible a little further on the left.

Alternatively, exit the M6 at junction 16 and follow the A500 towards Nantwich. Turn right at the Cheerbrook Roundabout and follow signs to Wrexham. After 20 or so miles, you will reach the outskirts of Wrexham at which point turn onto the A5156 towards Oswestry. Take this road to the A483 junction, turn left and take the road for one junction. Turn left at junction 5 and the ground will be visible on the left.
