Town on their travels once again
Our quick, off-the-wall guide to NUNEATON TOWN
Where? To give it it’s full title, the Triton Showers Community Arena. Or, for purists, Liberty Way. Located on an industrial estate in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Typing in CV11 6RR into your sat-nav will get you there.
We’ve been here before, right? No, we haven’t. This will be the Hatters’ first ever trip to Nuneaton. The club moved to this new stadium in 2007 having spent 90 years at their previous home Manor Park. Town fans have been allocated the Stuart Plumbing stand behind one of the goals.
How do I get there then? With ease. The trip to Liberty Way is just 70.7 miles from the Maple Road car park which, should – should – take about an hour and 20 minutes, if the traffic is kind. Take the M1 north, M6, leaving the M6 at junction 3 towards Bedworth/Coventry(North)/Nuneaton. The ground is located in the suburb of Attleborough.
Take it easy. Don’t fancy driving? The Bobbers are, as usual, heading to Nuneaton. They leave the Maple Road car park at 4.30pm. The fare is £17 for adults and £15 for concessions. Phone 01234 856542 to book your place.
How do I get in? Like, many football grounds, through the turnstiles. Before you're able to do that you'll have to part with some cash. Admission is £14 for adults, £10 for over-60s and students, £5 for 12-16-year-olds and £2 for those under 12.
We’ve met before. Of course! Only last week remember? And four weeks ago. The Boro have proved a tough nut to crack in the past two games at Kenilworth Road. In the league meeting, two late goals from Alex Lawless won the Town all three points while seven days Scott Rendell’s equaliser six minutes from time set-up the replay.
What happens next? Well, if it’s all square after 90 minutes it’s extra-time and then penalties, if need be. For the one team that triumphs, a home tie against Blue Square Bet South Dorchester Town awaits.
