Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday’s match

8 December 2023

The Red Dragons travel to the Bolt New Lawn this weekend in Sky Bet League Two action, and Phil Parkinson’s side will be backed by a sold-out away end in Nailsworth.

Ahead of the match, we look at all the information you’ll need if you’re set to attend Saturday’s fixture.

If you can't make it Saturday, as the fixture falls inside the Article 48 window, UK supporters can only access live commentary for the match.

However, for our overseas fans, there are both live video and audio streaming options available.

How To Get There: The Bolt New Lawn (NG2 3HJ)

Forest Greeen Rovers’ stadium is situated at The Bolt New Lawn, Another Way, Nailsworth, GL6 0FG. Away supporters are situated in the West Stand terrace, which is uncovered.

However, there is a small area of the West Stand that has some covered seating - which is reserved for away supporters with accessible tickets.

Gates into the stadium will open from 1:30pm.

Official Supporter Travel 

For those who are travelling on our official supporter travel, the buses will depart Mold Road at 10am, and there will be no provisions for those who arrive late.

Supporters must make note of their designated coach on the ticket and only board the coach they’ve been allocated to.

All under-14s must be accompanied on official supporter travel, and alcohol is strictly prohibited by law.

If you’re travelling by bus 

If you’re travelling by bus, there are stations both at Stroud and Gloucester which will take you to the ground – you’ll need to get on the Number 63 bus, which takes you straight to the stadium.

For a full timetable of the route, please see here.

If you’re travelling by car 

If you’re travelling from the STōK Cae Ras, join the A483 Southbound and then follow the road towards the A5.

From there, follow the road signs to continue onto the M54, and once you join the M54 continue for 25 miles before using the right lane to merge onto the M6.

Stay on the M6 until Junction 8 and take the exit to onto the M5 towards Birmingham (West)/Birmingham (South)/West Bromwich).

Once on the M5, continue for over 60 miles until Junction 13 and take the exit onto the A419 towards Stroud and Dursley.

From here, it is advised that you take the Park and Ride service, as traffic is often busy on a matchday and the surrounding roads around the stadium are often closed for bus access only.

To do so, continue onto the A419 for four miles before taking the third exit at the roundabout onto Dudbridge Hill. Shortly after, keep right onto Dudbridge Road.

From there, turn right onto Bath Road/A46 and continue for two miles, at which point the Park and Ride will be sign-posted.

If you’re travelling by train 

The nearest train station is Stroud, which is over 4 miles away from the stadium.

If you are travelling by train, it is suggested that you get the train to Gloucester or Stroud, and then continue your journey by bus on the Number 63 Stagecoach route.


Unfortunately, there is no general admission parking at the stadium or official parking within the immediate local vicinity of Nailsworth.

However, There is a Park & Ride service from the South Entrance of Renishaw on Stroud Road (postcode: GL5 5HA). Parking here is on a first-come, first-served basis, and is priced at £3 per car (card or contactless only). 

It’s the advised method of parking for away fans at the Bolt New Lawn. The buses will drop you off and collect you from right outside the stadium. The Park & Ride usually opens at around 12:30 pm. 

There is a limited number of disabled parking spaces for blue badge holders and costs £10 per car. To enquire about availability, you can call 0333 123 1889.

Ticket Collections 

Tickets for this fixture will be collection only from the STōK Cae Ras.

Forest Green Rovers have very limited facilities for our supporters to collect tickets from the Fully Charged New Lawn; so currently this is not an available option.

Tickets can be collected from the STōK Cae Ras, where you will have to provide proof of purchase through your booking reference. We cannot accept postcodes or any other information for collections.

Should anyone wish to collect on behalf of another supporter, as outlined above a booking reference will be required.

You will be able to collect tickets from the STōK Cae Ras until 5pm on Friday 8 December. They will not be available on the morning of the fixture.

Away Pubs

There is no designated away pub for this fixture.

However, prior to the match there is an away fan zone situated in front of the away turnstiles, which provides beer and food before the game.

There is a food and drink outlet in the away terrace, but it is expected that this will be extremely busy.  

Supporter Conduct 

Wrexham AFC wishes to remind supporters of the potential safety implications and consequences that may occur as a result of pitch incursions and other illegal and unacceptable behaviour.

As previously communicated, supporters who encroach on the pitch risk facing a Football Banning Order as well as a criminal conviction, while the Club itself could also face a fine for these actions.

There may also be other implications for the Club, including restrictions on future away ticket allocations. This is due to potential safety measures the home Club are required to put in place which impacts on the availability of seating.

The Club understands the emotion and passion that comes with attending the match as a fan but must reiterate that the safety of players, managers and supporters on both sides remains our priority.

The vast majority of fans have – and continue to – support the Club in an appropriate manner and are a credit to Wrexham AFC, but we will seek the strongest possible punishment for those who enter the field of play or engage in any other unacceptable behaviour.

As in line with the FA initiative, Wrexham AFC fully support the ‘Love Football Protect the Game’ program.

Wrexham AFC support the new measures that have been implemented to both improve participant and fan behaviour across the board.

Wrexham AFC operates a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind, and supporters are encouraged to come forward and report any incidents it to the nearest steward, the Club, or Kick it Out.
