Sharnbrook: Club Profile
Our time with Sharnbrook was brief; our fourth-ever opponents as a senior football side in the 1980-1 campaign. While a long-time member of the United Counties League, they left the competition at the end of the 2000-1 season. In more recent times, the club competed in the Bedfordshire County League.

To get to Sharnbrook, the easiest course of action is to head north on the A1(M) from Stevenage. Keep heading north onto the A1, passing Biggleswade and Sandy on your merry way. Once you reach the Black Cat Roundabout, however, take the first exit. This is Bedford Road and NOT the A421, if this bit proves a puzzler.
After just 0.3 miles and the entrance to Roxton Garden Centre, turn right onto Roxton Road. This will take you over the A421. Nearly one-and-a-half miles later, the road bends round sharply to the left at a T-junction. Follow it round to the left. This is a bit confusing because it now becomes Staploe Road; the road fanning off to the right from the junction also called Staploe Road.
Just over 3 miles later, turn left onto Church Road and then right shortly after onto New Road. This is at a junction where you'll find Cornfields Restaurant and Hotel (for reference). At the end of the road, turn right onto the B660 for nearly a mile. Then, it's left onto Thurleigh Road. Google says this road might be closed at certain times. We have no idea why it'd say that.
Keep heading straight for the village of Thurleigh. After passing through the village, the road bends round to the left onto Mill Hill. Go on a further 1.3 miles and then turn right; weirdly, onto another Thurleigh Road. This will soon bring you onto a roundabout with the A6. Take the third exit here onto the northbound A6 for around 1 mile.
Next, turn left onto Park Lane to take you into Sharnbrook. When faced with a Co-op, turn right onto the High Street and then left soon after onto Church Lane. You're only on here for another 0.2 miles until there's a right turn; this time, for Lodge Road. Up here is where you'll find the ground.
There's a small car park at the ground. If this is full, which is entirely possible, you may have to find local street parking. But please be mindful of local residents.
It seems the nearest station to Sharnbrook is Bedford, which means either a taxi or bus (route 50) ride to complete the journey.
