Basingstoke Town: Club Profile
After first meeting us during our Diadora League Premier Division days, Basingstoke Town can now be found in the Southern League. It followed a 12-year spell in Conference South that ended with relegation at the end of the 2015-6 season. The Dragons’ future seemed a little less certain in more recent times; their former chairman trying to sell their old ground.
As a result, the Dragons are now – as we write – playing at ‘home’ in Winchester.

The move to Winchester means a trip to take on the Dragons now takes a little longer. It still means heading down the M3, however; coming off at Junction 9 for the A272.
At the roundabout, take the fourth exit. It almost feels as if you’re going back on yourself – but trust us. After a mile-or-so, bear right so that you DON’T continue onto the A34. Half a mile later, there’s a left turn to take; the B3047 taking into Winchester.
After 1.4 miles, turn left onto Russell Road and right onto Oglander Road soon after. Just one more left turn (Hillier Way) is needed before you get to the ground.
The car park at the ground is quite small. As such, we’d be tempted to park up in one of the streets you come through on the way to the ground.

Not too much of a drama with this one; coming out of the station onto Station Road and heading down Station Hill. This brings you to a four-way road junction and you need to turn left here for Andover Road (B3420).
Soon after, turn right onto Worthy Lane and then go right again onto Hyde Church Lane just up here. After a crossroads, turn left for Hyde Church Path (this will bring you out by the King Alfred pub). Go across Saxon Road and there’ll be a path along the river.
You’ll spot the ground on the right soon enough.
