Us and Arlesey Town have both moved on from our United Counties League days together; the Blues not as high or as quick though. We left the competition in 1984, which remains the last time we played each other in a league match. The Blues, meanwhile, stuck around until the early 1990s before moving onto pastures new themselves. Of course, there have been meetings in the years since 1984. Well, just a couple actually. And the last of those came at the start of our 1996-7 FA Cup run. For near neighbours, they don’t half seem quite far away.
Arlesey Town Travel Information – Distance: 12 miles
Our preferred route for travelling to Arlesey isn’t quite the shortest, but it is equally as quick as other options and also negates the need to go through Hitchin or Letchworth. First, head north on the A1(M) until Junction 9 and come off here for Letchworth.
Bear left as if heading into Letchworth, but take the first left hand turn after; this will bring you onto Baldock Lane. Continue onto Willian Road and then, in 1.4 miles, take a right onto Queenswood Drive. Shortly after, you come to a roundabout. Go straight across.
At the next roundabout you come to (just before Wilbury Hills Cemetery), make a left and take the first exit onto Arlesey New Road. In nearly a mile, turn right onto Hitchin Road. The ground is up here on the right in another mile-or-so.
There is a small car park at the ground, which may be available for spectator use. Alternatively, you could find yourself looking for street parking provision.
