Sheffield United: Club Profile
After ending their 2011-2 League One automatic promotion hopes, the Blades got their revenge in the playoffs; edging us out by a single goal across two legs. It was a galling way to end an otherwise memorable campaign for Boro’. As a footnote, they ballsed up the playoffs in the final and led to more meetings before our 2014 relegation.

Facilities for Disabled Fans:
Sheffield United provides 10 wheelchair spaces and 10 designated seats for the ambulant disabled, located in the lower tier of the Bramall Lane Stand and the Westfield Health Stand. There is an ambulance gate nearby for disabled fans to enter the ground without need for steps.
Tickets will be distributed through Boro', with concessionary rates charged. A personal assistant will be admitted free of charge if required. There will also be a Disabled Away Stewart to assist on matchdays as refreshment stands are inaccessible for wheelchair users.
Alcohol is available inside the ground, but places outside the stadium are in plentiful supply. However, most nearest to the ground are home pubs only, so one option might be to try The Earl on Queens Road among others.
Travel Information – Distance: 139 miles
From Stevenage, the quickest and shortest route is to head up the M1 to Junction 29. Exit the motorway and take the second exit at the roundabout for the A617 - signposted Chesterfield/Matlock/A632. Continue for five miles before you need to take the fourth exit at the roundabout for the Sheffield-bound A61.
Travel along the A61 through a number of roundabouts and into Sheffield. After making a right turn to remain on the A61 once in the city, you will see a Halfords on your right. Just after this, turn left into Shoreham Street and make a left after 0.2 miles for Cherry Street.
It is suggested that your best option when visiting Sheffield United is to find street parking, unless you are feeling adventurous with the public transport options on offer.
Services to: DONCASTER (for STEVENAGE)
A walk from the railway station won't take you too much time and effort. It's not even a mile long! Come out of the station and turn left onto the A61 Sheaf Street, heading in a south-westerly direction. After 0.1 mile, you need to take a slight right to head up Shoreham Street (still the A61).
Follow this road for more than half a mile - crossing St Mary's Close in the process - before you come to the stadium. The away end is on the opposite side of the ground from Shoreham Street, so the best option is to take the right turn for John Street and then left onto Bramall Lane to come behind the right end.
