Margate: Club Profile
After three seasons in the Nationwide Conference, Margate were booted out in 2004 due to ongoing concerns with their ground. In our head-to-head, Boro’ had enjoyed a healthy record up until that point. But that was the last time we’d meet; the Gate going down once more in 2004-5 to end up in the Isthmian League.

After heading clockwise round the M25 and going over the Dartford Bridge, come off as the M25 restarts after its brief interlude as the A282. The Canterbury-bound A2 is what you need to take – and take you will for around nine miles.
The A2 becomes the M2 but don’t let this trouble you. You’ll find that once the M2 ends, however, you have to exit the carriageway to continue on the A2. DON’T DO THIS. Stay put and continue onto the A299 for 16.2 miles. And, once you come to the roundabout, that meets the A28, take the first exit.
Take the A28 for four-and-a-half miles, before turning right onto the B2052 George V Avenue, then right again for Hartsdown Road soon after. The ground is on the left.
Apart from a small car park at the ground, local on-street parking is your best bet.

You can walk from the station to the ground in around 15 minutes by our reckoning. It’s annoying in that you have to walk the long way round from the station, however.
Leave the station via Station Approach and turn right onto All Saints Avenue to bring you back under the railway. Follow it round to the right, before taking a diversion across the park on your left. This’ll bring you around the back of the leisure centre.
You’ll then need to turn left onto Hartsdown Road.
