It was the FA Cup that first introduced us to Eastbourne Borough, before the Sports joined us in the Blue Square Premier. In their first season with us at our level, they managed to do the league double over us. But, if there’s one encounter that definitely stays with us, it’s a 6-0 away win during our 2009-10 title-winning campaign; Mitchell Cole scoring a hattrick.
Eastbourne Borough Travel Information – Distance: 123 miles
We could be caught out by traffic here, but our chosen route for Eastbourne involves a trip around the counter-clockwise M25. We’re sure, however, the clockwise option might prove better if the traffic is being a rum chap. The bottom line is that you want to go right around and take the M23 south.
Keep on the M23 and then A23 until it meets the A27. Here, use the two left lanes and go through the first roundabout you come to. You want to join the eastbound A27 for Lewes. Stay on the A27; bypassing Polegate in the process. At the other side of the town, go right at the roundabout. This will take you onto the A22.
Stay on this for a couple of miles until you pass a Bannatyne’s Health Club on your right. At the roundabout, take the first exit for the B2191. Remain on the B2191 until you pass Langney Cemetery; it becomes the B2104 for a little bit, but you’ll barely notice that. After passing the cemetery, take a right turn onto Priory Road and the ground is down here.
There’s car parking for around 400 cars in the large River End car park and the smaller Priory Lane car park. The club asks that you don’t park in local side streets, however.
Station: PEVENSEY AND WESTHAM
Services to: LONDON VICTORIA
It’s about 15-20 mins walk from this station to the ground, which is nearer than Eastbourne Station. It’s located just up the B2191 from where cars would turn for the ground. To walk to the ground, go south out of the station away from the town of Westham. Follow the road around until you reach a roundabout after a mile. Turn left into Priory Road.
