AWAY DAY GUIDE | Forest Green Rovers

All you need to know ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Gloucestershire

26 February 2024

The Red Dragons travel to the Bolt New Lawn on Tuesday night in Sky Bet League Two action, and Phil Parkinson’s side will be backed on by a fantastic following in Nailsworth.

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

If you can’t make it on Tuesday, as the fixture falls outside the Article 48 window, the game can be watched live both in the UK and internationally on iFollow Wrexham.

There are also audio streaming packages available for UK-based supporters.

How To Get There: The Bolt New Lawn (GL6 0FG)

Forest Green 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 6:15pm.

Official Supporter Travel 

For those who are travelling on our official supporter travel, the buses will depart Mold Road at 3:45pm, and there will be no provisions for those who arrive late.

Supporters must make note of their designated coach on the ticket and must 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, you are advised to follow directions to Stroud, as parking will not be available at the ground and Nailsworth generally becomes very congested with traffic on a match-day.

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.

Parking 

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

All parking at the ground is sold out, and therefore supporters should not contact the main reception trying to purchase parking, as they cannot assist with this.

The Park & Ride service on Stroud Road is not in operation for this match, so supporters should leave adequate time to find a suitable space to park if they are driving to the Bolt New Lawn tomorrow evening.

Supporters must ensure if they are parking within the surrounding areas that they do so respectfully and adhere to all signage displayed.

Parking in the surrounding streets may lead you to being fined and your vehicle may be clamped or removed.

Ticket Collections 

To avoid lengthy queues on the day of the game and ensure that you can make it into the stadium for kick-off, we strongly advise fans to collect from the STōK Cae Ras in advance.

Forest Green Rovers have very limited facilities for our supporters to collect tickets from The Bolt New Lawn; all supporters are advised to collect their tickets from the STōK Cae Ras by midday.

From this point onwards, collections will only be available from The Bolt New Lawn.

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.

Supporters without a ticket

While we appreciate our fans wish to support the team, we urge supporters without a ticket to not attend the game or travel.

There will be no sales of tickets to away supporters at the ground. 

Away Pubs

There is no designated away pub for this fixture.

However, prior to the match there is a fan zone situated in front of the away turnstiles, open from 5pm, providing live music, beer and food outlets, Forest Green’s BrewDog bar and a coffee outlet which supporters will have access to.

Once inside the ground, 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.
