Jacob Blyth’s last gasp equaliser in our previous game has set us well on course for another positive performance on the road, this time against Morecambe.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of our midweek trip to the Globe Arena.

Estimated travel time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.

Morecambe moved to their new £12m home in 2010 after spending 89 years at Christie Park. The stadium is named after the construction company that it and houses 6,476 spectators. The Peter McGuigan stand is the largest stand which holds around a third of the total capacity. The rest of the stadium is terraced with two large stands at either end of the pitch.

Parking at the stadium is restricted to staff, players and matchday officials. The local primary school operate a car park at a cost of £5 with all proceeds going to the school. This can be found at LA4 4XF and is a 5 minute walk to the stadium.
For a cheaper option, street parking is available on Buckingham Road. This is a popular option for matchday parking and it takes around 5-10 minutes to walk to the stadium. This is located at LA4 4LU.
Food & Drink:
The closest restaurants to the ground is near the Arndale Morecambe Shopping Centre. Domino’s, KFC and a Morrisons are located along Hillmore Road however these are around a mile away so arrive early to avoid missing kick off.
Outside the stadium is a Marston’s pub named the Hurley Flyer which serves food and is family friendly. Other than this, the closest away friendly pub is the Regent Caravan Park which is a few minutes’ walk away from the stadium. The bar onsite has a Sky Sports shown on a big screen and usually has a good atmosphere.
Pie - £3.50
Your support drove us on in our last match against Leyton Orient and we hope that you can get behind the lads once more in Morecambe.
Have a safe journey and enjoy the match
