A team that we first came up against after going up to League One, our head-to-head in our first crack at the third tier was as even as it comes. With two draws, two defeats and two wins, Walsall were actually the last team we beat before dropping back into League Two. Of course, the Saddlers stayed put and it meant we didn’t cross paths again. Well, for five years. After losing their own battle for survival in 2019, down to League Two they came – even though it’d mean upsetting that delicate balance from the first six matches.
Disabled visitors to Walsall are charged at the full price, although carers are admitted free of charge where applicable. The club provides 12 wheelchair bays for away supporters, while there is also accommodation for ambulant disabled fans. It is also possible to gain matchday permits for the accessible parking.
The Saddlers Club outside the stadium will admit away supporters at a cost of £2 (free for U16s), which offers a larger function room at the back for away fans. Food, real ale and Sky Sports all provided.
Walsall Travel Information – Distance: 103 miles
For your trip to the West Midlands, cross country using your preferred route to join the M1. From here, travel northbound and exit onto the M6. If you travel via the A14, however, you can forget the M1 and just join the M6.
Continue onto the old section of the M6 towards central Birmingham. Exit the motorway at Junction 9 for the A461 towards Walsall. At the lights, continue onto Wallows Lane/A4148, which bears round to the right.
Another set of traffic lights will present itself, at which point you will need to turn right onto Bescot Crescent. The ground will be located on the left hand side of the road.
You can park at the stadium if you like. Each car costs £4, while minibuses and coaches are charged at £6 and £12 respectively. Those prices include disabled supporters.
If you’re in the Green Zone, be aware that you’ll be locked in if you’re not away within a couple of hours after the full time whistle.
You can also park up at Bescot Stadium Railway Station for £2 if you prefer.
