After initial skirmishes during the 2010-1 FA Cup, our relationship with the Dons would step up a gear once in League One. Across three seasons, we had some memorable matches; Robbo overseeing a 4-2 home win in early 2012 and them coming from two down to win at the Lamex – perhaps the moment we knew our battle against the drop wouldn’t be won?
MK Dons: The Facts
Stadium Way West, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK1 1ST
An access guide has been produced by MK Dons in partnership with Disabled Go and this sets out all you need to know about the ground’s facilities. But the main points are below.
Arriving at stadium:mk, there are a limited number of matchday car parking spaces. These can be pre-booked by calling 01908 622901 or emailing [email protected]. Parking cannot be guaranteed for Blue Badge holders who do not pre-book, however.
There are spaces for wheelchair users located in the back row at concourse level in each area of the stadium, as well as an adjoining space for carers. Meanwhile, there are also a number of seats for ambulant disabled fans who need level access on the same level.
A first-come, first-served commentary service is available for fans with a visual impairment and headsets can be booked via the box office.
The current contact for disabled supporters at MK Dons is Disability Liaison Officer, Andy Standen. You can contact Andy by email at [email protected] or on 01908 622899.
For away fans, the choice of pubs near the ground is pretty limited these days. Bletchley Working Mens’ Club and The Postal Club on Brooklands are options. But that involves a bit of a walk. You could always try the eateries on the retail park. But do you want to really?
MK Dons Travel Information – Distance: 32 miles
The trip from Stevenage to Milton Keynes takes under an hour on a good day, although you have to force yourself to absorb the sights (or is that sighs) of Hitchin en route. From Stevenage, travel westbound along the A602 into Hitchin before joining up with the Luton-bound A505. Shortly after this, however, bear right onto the B655 towards Barton-le-Clay.
Once at Barton-le-Clay, turn right and then left for Sharpenhoe and Harlington. Follow the unclassified road through the villages until you reach the A5120. Turn left onto the A road and shortly you will arrive at the M1. From here, you want to head north – but only for one junction; the A421 for Milton Keynes being your next step.
Continue along the A421 over a number of roundabouts; six the most reliable estimate to hand. Eventually you’ll want to turn left onto the B4034 Saxon Way; continuing across one roundabout and pass over the A5 to find the ground on the right hand side.
Limited parking is available at the ground at a cost of £7 – and you can pre-book if you’d like. Otherwise, you might want to try Castle House on Dawson Road at a cost of £5.
Services to: LONDON EUSTON
At approximately two miles from stadium:mk, the train may not be the most viable option for an evening match in Milton Keynes. The easiest option would be a London Midland stopping service from Euston that calls at Bletchley. Some don’t, however, and will need Southern connections from Leighton Buzzard.
An evening fixture will probably not see you return to Stevenage until the following day. It may be possible to go to Luton, however, and get a train from the Parkway station. Milton Keynes Central station is around four miles away; possibly offering more regular services.
