Chelmsford City: Club Profile

Is there any other club in England who have applied for (and were denied) election to the Football League as often as Chelmsford City? In total, the Clarets put their names into the hat on 17 separate occasions between 1947 and 1976. And, on each occasion, they were knocked back; this despite them being, more often than not, one of the strongest sides in the Southern League. It could’ve made our story so very different.

Our first meeting came in the 1981-2 Eastern Floodlit Cup semi-final; the Clarets proving too strong for us over two legs. It wouldn’t be until a new century had dawned that we a) met again and b) got the better of them. By the time we played ’em again in the 2009-10 FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round, fortunes for both of us were much different. For us, we were on the cusp of the League ourselves. For them, Conference South playoff hopefuls.

Chelmsford City Travel Information – Distance: 38 miles

By Road

There are a couple of options to explore – depending on how direct you want to make the trip across to Essex.

A414

The first will involve going over to Ware on the A602; joining the A10 south for a short bit, before leaving for the A414. Between Ware and Harlow, it’s mostly dual carriageway. But, after the M11 junction on the other side of Harlow, it’s only single carriageway for the rest of the journey. The A414 will take you into the south of Chelmsford.

Turn left towards the town centre and left again onto the A138/A1016 and head north. Go left onto the A1060 for Sawbridgeworth and continue along Bundick’s Hill until you reach a right turn for Chigwell Lane. Take this right and head up here until you reach Melbourne Avenue. Turn right along here and the ground will shortly be on your right.

A12

You can also head towards the M25 and travel clockwise for the A12 junction. Head north on the A12 until you reach the A414 turnoff. Bear left towards Chelmsford and follow the directions for when you meet the A138/A1016.

Parking

There’s a small number of parking spaces at the ground and limited street parking in the surrounding area.


By Rail

Station: CHELMSFORD
Services to: LONDON LIVERPOOL STREET

Leave the station and cut down the pedestrian area onto Duke Street. Turn right and keep going along when it becomes Rainsford Road. The directions become – more or less – the same as the car ones once you get to Bundick’s Hill. Well, unless you’d like to cut through the residential area on a more direct route.
