Farnborough: Club Profile
Like us, this is a Boro’ side promoted to the GM Vauxhall Conference in 1994 – and then the story gets complicated. It wasn’t at first, mind. For five seasons, we did battle with the side from Hampshire before they were relegated. When they returned after a two-season interlude, the relationship between us was about to change.
With us struggling at the foot of the table in 2002-3 Nationwide Conference, boss Wayne Turner was sacked. His eventual replacement was be Graham Westley, then in charge at Cherrywood Road. In coming to Boro’, he brought with him seven of his players to rebuild our fortunes at Broadhall Way.
Farnborough dropped out of the Conference National in 2005, before going into administration during the 2006-7 season. At the end of the campaign, they were kicked out of the competition and reformed; dropping their Town suffix and changing their colours (back) to yellow and blue.

Travel Information – Distance: 58 miles
Much of the getting to Farnborough is simple enough, except it factors in the M25. And we all know how much of a cruel mistress that can be. For the quickest and most direct route, however, head counter-clockwise on the M25 from the A1(M) or A405 until Junction 4.
Exit onto the southbound M3 towards Southampton and the like. In 12-or-so miles, you'll be wanting to leave the M3 – again at Junction 4. This is for the A331 and takes you into Farnborough. On leaving the motorway, take the second exit at the roundabout for barely half a mile.
Leave the A331 for the A325 exit; taking the third exit at the roundabout at the top of the slip road. Go across another roundabout and then take the first exit at the next one, which is by a Maccie D's and retail park. In 0.4 miles, turn right onto Prospect Avenue.
At the end of the road is a roundabout. Here, take the third exit. The next roundabout you come to will be in 0.4 miles and the stadium will be on the right.
A car park is available at the ground, but we couldn't tell you what the policy will be for away fans if we're to visit. That said, we've never had too much of an issue with local street parking. Just be aware of any restrictions.

The stadium itself is 1.5 miles from the station, which means a 30-minute walk. Leave the station turning left and then left again at the roundabout you should come to if you haven't already messed this up. You'll be crossing over the railway in doing so.
Keep going along Farnborough Road (A325) until Prospect Avenue appears on your left. Make the turn here, and continue down to the roundabout as per the driving instructions. Go right at the roundabout and you'll arrive at the ground soon enough.
