AWAY GUIDE | The Cherry Red Records Stadium



We are situated in the Rygas Stand along the side of the pitch, which is in fact a covered terrace directly overlooking one half of the pitch. It has a pretty low roof and isn't very steep, but seems relatively pole free and with 600 of us there should be a bit of room. The facilities are pretty basic, as the ground was originally designed as a walk-around, segregation only coming into place when The Wombles achieved League status. Still, it will be different when they finally return to Plough Lane. 
Entrance is off the main Kingston Road just beyond the main entrance.


Very basic inside the ground, but there is a small parade of shops just outside the ground that boasts a chip shop and the fantastic Fat Boy's Cafe which as you can imagine by the title is not necessarily great for the cholesterol levels, but very nice all the same. Nearby Kingston and New Malden also have plenty of places.


There are a couple of bars at the ground, although it is not known whether or not they are open to away fans is not determined until the day before the game when they announce it on their website, but I think it's unlikely for this fixture. 
Down by Kingston station is The Cornerstone with the The Kings Tun slightly closer to the ground. The closest to the ground is seemingly The Old Moot House. Kingston and New Malden town centres have a few places, particularly the former, both being a 131 bus ride away. Alternatively if coming by train simply break the journey at a place of your choice.


The Post Code if travelling by car is KT1 3PB. As ever with London grounds, I won't recommend the full route, but probably the best bet is to aim for Kingston.

From the one-way system in the town centre, take Richmond Road (A308) towards Kingston Hospital. Turn right onto Cambridge Road (A2043), and the stadium is less than a mile on the right. There is a car park at the ground whilst street parking is available - as ever watch out for signs on lamp posts.

The nearest railway station is Norbiton, which is less than a mile from the ground and a very pleasant walk. Trains run from Waterloo every 15 minutes via Clapham Junction and Wimbledon (terminating at Shepperton or Strawberry Hill). Leave the station via the back exit, and take the first left onto Norbiton Avenue. Turn right at the end onto Gloucester Road, and walk down to Kingston Road, turn left, and the stadium is 400 yards on the right.
