Forest Green Rovers: Club Profile

With the world’s first Vegan club joining the Football League, our long-running relationship with Forest Green Rovers entered a new age. While it wasn’t until August 1998 that we’d first meet Rovers, we are certainly making up for it now. Boro’ and Rovers were two of the ever-presents of the Conference until our promotion in 2010. And now the Gloucestershire club are looking increasingly solid as a League outfit themselves.

Ticket Info


Facilities for Disabled Fans

You can pre-book a parking space at the New Lawn if you are a Blue Badge holder. It can be done up to four weeks in advance and costs nothing. The advice is to book as early as you can; calling 0333 123 1889 to do so.

If you’re travelling with a carer or personal assistant, they’ll qualify for a free ticket as long as you meet the necessary criteria. This includes either a) the medium- or higher-rate of Disability Living Allowance, b) the enhanced-rate Personal Independence Payment or c) the Severe Disablement Allowance. A GP letter can also be accepted.

For more information, please call on 0333 123 1889or email reception@fgr.co.uk.


Pre-Match Pints

The club has a dedicated bar for away fans at The New Lawn, which serves a range of vegan-friendly food and drink. For something a little further away and for anyone maybe looking for some meat on the bones (pun 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.

Forest Green Rovers Travel Information – Distance: 128 miles

By Car

Boro’ 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. Here, 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 using the slip road for the A419 (again) in the direction of 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. Continue going up here until you reach the ground.

Parking

No parking is available at the ground itself these days. But you can try the neighbouring school, which is under 100m away and will cost you £5 (by card only). As its first-come, first-serve, you’ll want to arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Local street parking might be available too – but check the road or street you choose is not subject to any restrictions.

Most matches see a Park and Ride service operate. Buses leave from the Renishaw site on Stroud Green Road (GL5 5HA). With 200 parking spaces here, this is also first-come, first-sever. It’ll also cost you £3 between the hours of 12.30 (first bus) and 17.45 (last).


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 to bridge that gap. Alternatively, taxis are available upon arrival at the station and will cost around a tenner at most.
