Away Day Guide – Huddersfield
The new season sees the return of our hugely popular away day guides.
Fulham’s first away trip of the new campaign sees Marco Silva’s side travel to the John Smith’s Stadium to take on Huddersfield Town on Saturday 14 August, kicking off at 3pm.
Fulham have received an allocation 2,400 tickets for this game, priced at:
- Adults : £25
- 60 and over : £20
- Under 19 : £15
- Under 11 : £10
Tickets go on sale from 1pm on Monday 9 August and can be obtained from the ticket office by phone (020 3871 0810) or online.
GETTING TO THE JOHN SMITH’S STADIUM
Exit the M1 at Junction 38 and head onto the A637 and then the A642 towards Huddersfield. Stay in the right hand lane as you get towards the town centre, as you will need to turn right at the roundabout onto the A62 Leeds Road. The ground will soon appear visible on your right. There is car parking available in the car park at the stadium (priced at £6) as well as some spaces offered by local businesses on St. Andrew’s Road.
It takes about 15 minutes to walk from Huddersfield train station to the St. John’s Stadium. After leaving the train station, head past the Grange Hotel and over the crossroads on to Northumberland Street and cross the ring road to reach the Leeds Road. Take a right down Gasworks Street and walk over the crossroads to the ground. A taxi from the station straight to the stadium should be about £6.
Club coaches can be booked on the official web site for £30 (adult) or £20 (junior) with a £5 surcharge for those who are neither season ticket holders nor members. Coaches depart Craven Cottage and Motspur Park at 7am.
The Trust has made every effort to ensure that the following pubs will be open on the day of the game – but the current circumstances leave the situation open to change.
- The Yorkshire Rose (217 Leeds Road, Huddersfield HD1 6NW) has previously been popular with Fulham fans. The pub stocks a wide selection of beers and offers good food, although fans are encouraged to arrive early as this is a small establishment and is likely to be busy on a matchday. Patrons are asked to wear masks at present.
- The Turnbridge Working Men’s Club (9 St Andrew’s Road, Aspley, HD1 6SB) welcomes non-members and away fans on matchdays. It is usually busy on matchdays, so early attendance is advised.
- The Magic Rock Tap Bar (Willow Park Business Centre, Willow Lane, Huddersfield HD1 5EB) offers excellent ales and good food as well, although it is about a mile or so from the ground.
- Supporters travelling by train may wish to frequent The Head of Steam or The King’s Head, which features in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, within the station itself.
- The Boy and Barrel (Beast Market, Kirkgate, HD1 1QF) is around five minutes walk from the station and offers a good selection of beers and a lively atmosphere. The Parish (28 Kirkgate, Huddersfield, HD1 1QQ) is a similar walking distance away and stocks a wide selection of alcohol as well as having a highly recommend food menu.
Alcohol and food are available from serving hatches behind the South Stand. Excellent locally produced pies are reasonably priced and usually part of a pie and a pint deal. The main alcohol options are John Smith’s, Fosters, Strongbow and red or white wine.
The Trust would like to thank our friends at the Huddersfield Town Supporters’ Association for their assistance in compiling this awayday guide.
