AWAY DAY GUIDE | Notts County

Everything you need to know ahead of our trip to Nottingham

27 October 2023

The Red Dragons travel to Meadow Lane this weekend in Sky Bet League Two action and Phil Parkinson’s side will be backed by a sold-out away end in Nottingham.

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: Meadow Lane (NG2 3HJ)

Notts County’s stadium is situated at Meadow Lane, Nottingham, NG2 3HJ. The Jimmy Sirrel Stand is allocated to visiting away fans and is accessed via turnstiles on County Road.

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 10:30am, 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 

Nottingham’s coach station, which used to be at Broadmarsh, is temporarily situated on Station Street.

To get to Meadow Lane Stadium from there, head east along Station Street to London Road.

Turn right onto London Road and after approximately 400m (having passed Hooters on your right) turn left onto Cattle Market Road/A6011.

Take the second right onto County Road/A6011 and you will be at the rear of the visitors’ stand, the Jimmy Sirrel Stand.

If you’re travelling by car 

If you’re travelling from the STōK Cae Ras, then follow the A483 towards Chester for just over a mile, before exiting at junction six towards Gresford and Nantwich. At the roundabout, you will need to take the fifth exit onto the A5156.

Follow signs towards the A534, and then take the first exit at the roundabout to join onto the A534.

From there, continue on the road, eventually taking you onto the A51 towards Crewe. Follow road signs to join the A50 towards Derby, eventually joining the A453 from the Derby southern bypass.

From there, follow the A453 towards Nottingham.   

If you are travelling to the ground, the route is well signposted (‘football and cricket traffic’) from all directions, and once you get in the local vicinity, you should follow the signs to direct you towards the ground.

Alternatively, fans travelling by car on the M1 can get to Meadow Lane by using the city’s Park & Ride tram facilities off the M1 at junctions 24, 25 and 26.

Parking is free but tram tickets must be bought before boarding the tram. The closest tram-stop to Meadow Lane is Station Street.

With traffic and parking not being easy around Meadow Lane, this is a very practical way of getting to the ground.

If you’re travelling by train 

The ground is 10 minutes’ walk from Nottingham railway station.

As you come out of the main station entrance, head Southeast on Carrington Street.

Take the first left towards Queen’s Road/A6019 and turn left at Queen’s Road/A6019.

Turn right at London Road/A60 and take the first left onto Cattle Market Road/A6011.

Take the second right onto County Road/A6011 and turn right at Meadow Lane/A6011, where you will find the ground on the right.


There are a limited number of on-street parking spaces on the roads around the ground - all have to be paid for using the Ringo telephone booking service. Details are displayed on adjacent (lamp) posts.

Next to the ground, to the rear of the Jimmy Sirrel stand, there is parking available in the Cattle Market and there are also private, manned, parking sites on Meadow Lane - all ‘pay at the gate’.

Parking charges currently average £5 per vehicle.

Down from the railway station, towards the ground, on London Road, Hooters (NG2 3AS) is also a popular pre-match venue with football fans.

The Broken Wheelbarrow at the back of the stand on Meadow Lane is not available to visiting supporters.

Road Closures

To assist with the safe dispersal of supporters, Cattle Market Road and County Road will be closed from full-time until deemed safe to reopen.

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.
