ON Chenecks are the team against whom it all began for us; our first-ever opponents after stepping up to senior football. Maybe we should invite ’em to a pre-season friendly on our 50th birthday or anniversary of joining the United Counties League? The Chens are still in the UCL; promoted to the Premier Division for the first time in 2016.
ON Chenecks: The Facts
Old Northamptonians Sports Ground
Billing Road, Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN1 5RX
ON Chenecks Travel Information – Distance: 47 miles
You’re heading towards Northampton for this one, so take the M1 north until Junction 15. Here, exit for the A45 and continue for 3.6 miles. At the exit for the A428, leave the A45 and take the second exit from the roundabout for the A5095 Rushmere Road.
After nearly a mile, turn left onto Billing Road and the ground is up here.
Now, we believe the ground to be on the right hand side of the road but do make sure of this. In any case, the various sports pitches around this area do have parking spaces that should be capable of meeting demand.

It’s a 1.8-mile walk to the ground. Come out of the station and turn left onto Black Lion Hill; cutting across to Mare Fair straight on after this. Go past the cinema and onto Gold Street. Then it’s straight on for George Row. And straight on again for St Giles’ Square. Next, turn left-ish for St Giles’ Street.
It’s then straight on (again) for Spencer Parade and, oh, straight on again for Billing Road.
