Great Yarmouth Town: Club Profile
Great Yarmouth Town were our opponents for a 1989-90 FA Cup Preliminary Round clash; a game that Boro’ won 2-0. Our chances of meeting each other more reguarly aren’t helped by the fact the Bloaters are members of the Eastern Counties League. And they have been ever since being a founder member in 1935.

Great Yarmouth Town Travel Information – Distance: 112 miles
This is one of the more unusual trips you’re likely to be asked to make to support Boro’. But variety is the spice of life. Go north from Stevenage and follow the A505 all the way across past Royston and Duxford; joining the A11 for almost nine miles after this.
Continue onto the A14 for over 6.5 miles until you reach Junction 38. Here, you need to join the northbound A11 that’ll take you towards Thetford and Norwich. It’ll be 42.5 miles until you reach the junction with the A47.
Join the A47 eastbound for 15 miles around Acle; remaining on the A47 for a further 7.3 miles after taking the second exit at the roundabout by the BP and Travelodge. The next step is to take the A149 into Great Yarmouth.
After you’ve crossed the River Bure and passed a Staples store, turn left into Northgate Street and then right into Kitchener Road.
Just before you reach the ground on Sandown Road, turn right at the end of Kitchener Road and there’s a car park on the left. At the end of Sandown Road is a seafront car park. So, there are two options to be starting with.
