Forest Green Rovers: Club Profile

With the world’s first Vegan club joining the Football League, our long-running relationship entered a new age. Our first encounter may not have taken place until August 1998, but it  wasn’t as if we didn’t make up for it; Boro’ and Forest Green Rovers mainstays of the top flight of non-league football until we left in 2010.

Pre-Match Pintage:
The club itself has its own onsite bar called The Green Man, which sells vegan-friendly beers and wines among other items. It seems it's now common for it to be home fans only, however. Mind you, there is also a bar in the away end that does just the same.

For something a little further away and for anyone perhaps looking for some meat on the bones (pun fully intended), the George and the Britannia are both 15 minutes' walk from the ground. Be advised that, for the latter in particular, it isn't such an easy walk to the ground.

Travel Information – Distance: 128 miles

By Road:
Not one of the most accessible grounds, Stevenage fans first and foremost must find themselves heading down the A1(M) onto the M25, and then onto the M4. From here, make the 60-mile trek across the country until you come to Junction 15.

At Junction 15, you are leaving the motorway. Obviously, given how we flagged it up. This is the A346/A419 exit for Swindon. At the roundabout, take the third exit and join the A419. Continue on here for 15 miles, before taking the slip road for the A419 (again) towards Stroud.

After just two more miles, take the second exit at the roundabout for the A429. Take the second exit again at the next roundabout too. With Waitrose on your right after less than a mile, it's the second exit (again!) you want at the roundabout. But only for half a mile, however.

Another roundabout is coming your way at this point, and you'll need the third exit for the A419. An aerodrome will be on your left as you approach yet another roundabout in 6.5 miles. Take the first exit for Cirencester Road. And turn left after a mile onto an unnamed road.

Keep going onto what becomes The Ladder. This will be a twisting, turning stretch of road that'll bring you into Nailsworth. Turn left at the bottom of this hill for George Street. In the town centre is a roundabout; take the second option to go straight ahead. Keep going up here until you reach the ground.

Parking:
For those travelling by car, there are more than enough parking spaces at The New Lawn to meet demand. For a couple of quid, drivers can park both outside the ground or indeed in a field behind the club's own car park. Whichever method you choose, there will be no difficulties in getting parked up and indeed getting out on the way home.


By Rail:
Station: STROUD
Services to: SWINDON (for LONDON PADDINGTON)

It is approximately 4-5 miles from Stroud to Nailsworth, and there are regular bus services from Stroud. Alternatively, taxis are available upon arrival at the station and will cost just shy of a tenner at most.
