Worthing v Woking
FA Youth Cup,Preliminary Round
7.45pm on Monday 7 September 2009
A reminder that the Academy side starts its FA Youth Cup trail this evening with a tough tie at Worthing. Your support would be greatly appreciated if you can get there. Admission is only Â£3 for adults and Â£2 for concessions.
The directions given on the Worthing official website are as follows:
Woodside Road, Worthing, West Sussex BN14 7HQ.
Follow A24 past the Black Horse pub on your left and keep driving past the Jet petrol station which will also be on your left.
At the round-about, take the 2nd exit into Offington Lane. Remember that this is a 30mph road (watching the camera on your left) and carry on driving south.
Continue to go straight on through the Thomas a' Beckett traffic lights (you'll see the pub on the left corner).
Follow the road round and go straight on at the first mini-roundabout. About 100 metres along you'll see another mini-roundabout, take a left here into St. Lawrence Avenue.
There's another mini-roundabout which you should go straight across.
150 metres along there's another mini-roundabout, this time take a right down Nutbourne Road and continue going straight (negotiating the s-bend!) to the next junction...you'll be able to see the stadium and floodlights now.
Take a left down Bulkington Road and Woodside Road will be on your right in about 250 metres time, although now would be a good time to park your car as Woodside Road itself gets very busy on match days.
Being a residential area, parking is tight. On match days, driving/parking down Woodside Road is not advisable. Try the roads situated around the ground: Bulkington Avenue, Nutbourne Road, Shermanbury Road, Gaisford Road, Woodmancote Road and possibly Henty Road, though this will get busy.
Half a mile from Worthing (BR) Central station. When you come out of the station, take an immediate right and walk parallel to the train-line down Cross Street. About 100 metres down the road, you will see a train crossing. Turn right here into South Farm Road. Take the next left down Pavillion Road and walk along here for about 400 metres where you should start to be able to see the floodlights. You will see Woodside Road on the right and the ground is about another 200 metres on the left.
