Stourbridge: Club Profile
As two clubs operating in different circles in our earlier non-league days, it was the FA Cup that paired us together; first at their place in December 2011 and then again two years later at ours. Both were in Round Two, and saw us progress into the “big” draw.

Travel Information – Distance: 116 miles
There are a handful of variants on how you can travel to Stourbridge by car, but we'll stick with the main one for the time being. For this, you will need to get yourself across to the northbound M1 using your preferred route. Once on the M1, continue northbound until the junction with the M6 and then bear left for Birmingham and the Midlands.
At Junction 3a of the M6, continue along the old path of the motorway into the heart of Birmingham. After more than 14 miles, exit the M6 onto the southbound M5 for more than 8.5 miles for the A456 exit at Junction 3. After leaving the M5, take the third exit at the roundabout for Kidderminster, Stourbridge and Halesowen. Going through four roundabouts, remain on the A456 for 5 miles.
When you reach the village of Hagley, turn right onto the A491 Stourbridge Road. After entering Stourbridge, turn left to stay on the A491 (New Road) and remain on this road for around 1 mile. At this point, the War Memorial Ground will be located on the left-hand side of the road along with a cricket pitch and opposite the Royal Oak pub.
You can of course alter the route by using the A1 and A14 to get to the M6, or leaving the M1 earlier along the Coventry-bound M45. Once at Coventry, head south towards Leamington Spa and join the M40. Continue onto the M42 and exit at Junction 1 for the Bromsgrove-bound A38. At the junction with the M5, take the second exit at the roundabout for the A491 Sandy Lane.
There is a small car park at the ground, but don't count on using this in case it is busy or there is a permit scheme enforced. A car park at the Royal Oak may also be reserved for customers only. Otherwise, investigate nearby street parking options if nothing else suffices.
