All At Sea away travel: Northampton

5 Sep

Sixfields… meh. At least it’s not too far away, one of the closer trips in this very northern division.
The ground is a fair walk from the town centre but there is parking on the retail park in which it is set so that’s not a problem for the drivers amongst you.

Train travellers will face a 25 minute walk from the station but there are a couple of watering holes on the way which normally get our custom.

Near the ground, on the retail park there is the Sixfields Tavern which is supposed to be for home fans only but if you’re not wearing colours you’ll be alright. Otherwise, there’s an Old Orleans bar or a bowling alley which are the usual haunts for visiting fans.

The town centre has the usual chains but it is a taxi ride away.

Now Adam Barrett has left it might be a little bit harder to win here than it usually is. We’ve clashed several occasions at Sixfields over the last decade and we’ve more often than not come out on top. Our last trip there was Easter Monday 2009 when goals from Robinson, Christophe and Barnard gave us a 3-2 victory. We haven’t lost here in 12 years, since a 3-1 defeat in 1998, and have won four of our last five games at Sixfields. Sounds ominous to me.

Southend fans get 800 seats behind one goal plus a couple of hundred in one of the side stands, and tickets are priced at £19.
