In both Leagues One and Two, there have been a fair few encounters between Boro’ and Crewe Alexandra since 2010; the club waiting for us when we arrived in League Two and then joining us in League One for the 2012-3 season. They clearly missed us after we fell back into League Two in 2014 too; the Alex coming back down themselves in 2016. For a long time, our record against them was decent. It wasn’t until 2016 that we lost to them.
But then we lost to them a little too often after that.
With 65 car parking spaces in the main pay and display car park, disabled fans should find Crewe to be accessible enough. The Alex says it provides unlimited facilities for ambulant disabled fans and 14 wheelchair spaces on raised platforms in the away end.
For fans with a visual impairment, match commentary is available through headsets when you request in advance. If you have any specific questions or would like more information, the listed contact is Beverley Dyer on 01270 252610 or by email [email protected].
The Royal Hotel is among a number of pubs located close to Gresty Road and offers a welcoming setting for away fans. It might not look the most welcoming from outside, but you’ll be proved wrong once inside and the facilities are extensive.
Crewe Alexandra Travel Information – Distance: 149 miles
At nearly three hours, this journey isn’t too demanding. First thing is to get yourself on the northbound M1 as you will be wanting the M6 at its source north of Daventry. Once on the M6, continue north – either via the Toll or not – until Junction 16 for the A500.
This has become a familiar part of the world to Boro’ fans. But, instead of opting for Stoke, you want the Crewe-bound A500. Continue until you hit a roundabout just before Weston; taking the third exit for the A5020.
Nearly a mile after joining the northbound A5020, take the first exit at the roundabout and stay on the Weston Road. After nearly two miles, take the first exit at the roundabout for Nantwich on the A534; crossing the railway. Shortly after, you will find yourself with a left turn for Gresty Road.
Just before you reach the final roundabout on Weston Road, you’ll come across a sign that points you towards ‘Away Supporters On Street Parking’. This takes you into an industrial estate near a VW dealership. It’s about 15 minutes to walk it in from here. So, you might want to try the pay and display behind the Main Stand if you arrive in decent time. It’ll cost you £3.50.

One of the easier connections, Crewe railway station is a mere five-minute walk from Gresty Road. Be sure to turn left as you exit the station, mind. It’s not hard to get from Stevenage to Euston either.
