6,000 MILES ON THE ROAD

17 June 2015

Carlisle and Morecambe midweek the undoubted highlights!

Hatters fans will clock up almost 6,000 miles next season in Sky Bet League 2.

The Town begin their 2015/16 campaign with one of their longest journeys of the season, the 400-mile round-trip to Accrington Stanley.

There’s an early midweek jaunt up the M6 in September when the Hatters head to Morecambe on a Tuesday night. And four days after that 430-mile round-trip there’s the small matter of a 464-mile journey to Hartlepool!

Over Christmas and New Year the Town faithful will no doubt be in their numbers at Portsmouth (28th December) and Bristol Rovers (2nd January).

The second-longest trip – the 502-mile trek to Plymouth – takes place on 19th March – but the fixture computer hasn’t done Town followers any favours with the longest journey – to Carlisle – on a Tuesday night in April!

There are plenty of fixtures closer to Kenilworth Road, though. The Town’s shortest trip of the season at Stevenage – just 34 miles to Broadhall Way and back – takes place on 21st Novemeber. 

Cambridge lie in wait at the Abbey Stadium on 5th September, while the Town make the relatively short 80-mile round-trip to Wycombe Wanderers in early February.

At the tail end of the campaign the Hatters make the 35-mile journey up the M1 to Northampton for their final away game of the season on 30th April.
