Gorleston: Club Profile
From the Norfolk coast, Gorleston came to Broadhall Way for the first time in December 1984 to end our FA Vase hopes that season. It was quite a charming introduction, don’t you think? At the time, the Greens were coming off a spell of dominance in the Eastern Counties League; a competition they’ve been in for all but 10 years since joining it as a founder member in 1935.

Gorleston Travel Information – Distance: 116 miles
Gorleston is in the same area as Great Yarmouth, so start off by heading up the A505 towards Cambridge. Keep going until you join the A11, before merging onto the A14. And seven miles later, it’s back onto the A11 towards Norwich.
After 42.6 miles, take the A47 eastbound for Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft until you reach the outskirts of the former. By a large lake and before reaching Great Yarmouth station, take the A12 across the River Yare and keep going until you come to a roundabout by a Toby Carvery. Here, you need to take the third exit for Beaufort Way.
Turn right after the next roundabout onto Carrel Road and take the first left for Woodfarm Lane.
We can’t see a reason why you wouldn’t find space at the ground.
