All you need to know ahead of Saturday's visit to Blundell Park

15 October 2018

Exeter City travel to Blundell Park looking to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to nine games. The Grecians won on their last visit to Grimsby Town thanks to a goal from Jayden Stockley.

Here is all you need to know about visiting the stadium. 

STADIUM BLUNDELL PARK (DN35 7PY) 

Blundell Park has a capacity of 9,052 which is all seated. The away fans are seated in one corner of the Osmond stand where just less than 600 supporters can be held. 

GRECIAN TRAVEL 

You can book Grecian Travel for the price of £37. Grecian Travel will depart from Unit 1 nightclub at 6.30am. Other pick-up points include: Honiton Road Park & Ride (by Miller and Carter steakhouse), Cullompton Services (junction 28), Tiverton (junction 27), Taunton (junction 25), any other pick-ups en-route by prior arrangement.

For more information or to book contact Chris Woolcott on 01392 250250.  

BY ROAD 

Use the M5 and then take M42, M1 and M180 to A180 into North Lincolnshire. Then follow A180 to Imperial Ave in Cleethorpes where you will find the ground on your left.

BY RAIL

The journey from Exeter St David’s to Cleethorpes Railway Station takes six and a half hours and would require at least one change, normally at Sheffield. When you arrive in Cleethorpes, walk left along the seafront until you see the ground and then cross the bridge. After crossing the bridge, turn right and proceed down the road, this will lead you to the away entrance. This walk should take 15 to 20 minutes and has chip shops and pubs on the way.

PUBS/FOOD

Visiting fans will be sure of a warm welcome to Blundell Park with your dedicated bar inside the ground. Although an old room it is full of character and is decked out in flags, scarves, shirts etc, that have been kindly donated from previous clubs who have visited over time.

The bar opens at the same time as the turnstiles (1.30pm on Saturday.)

Scotties Bar is run by the Mariners Trust, a supporters’ organisation which has the aim of raising money for the club. They are asking for any donations of away club memorabilia (scarves, shirts, pennants etc..) to make it a true football bar. So, if you have something spare that you can take along then I'm sure it would be appreciated. Please note that entrance to Scotties Bar can only be gained from inside the ground, once you have entered through the away turnstiles.
