Wycombe Wanderers v Hereford United
Football League 2
Tuesday 4th December 2007 Kick-off 7.45pm.
Adams Park
Hillbottom Road
HP12 4HJ.

Adams Park, home of The Chairboys, is a more than decent League 2 venue, which is shared with Wasps Rugby Club and is dominated by the impressive Frank Adams Stand opposite The Seymour Taylor main stand. The home end is the only true terracing whereas visiting fans are housed in the Dreams Stand which is a single tiered all seated affair with ends that are closed to help keep the wind out. The home fans, stewards and staff at Wycombe are welcoming which makes a visit to Adams Park a pleasant experience. The usual football food and drinks are available from a refreshment kiosk inside the ground. The ground is, however, at the edge of an industrial estate, which means that there are very few handy Pubs. The Supporters Bar at the ground does normally allow visiting fans although there is often a small charge to get in. The nearest pub to the ground is The Hour Glass (144 Chapel Lane, Sands), about 1 mile from Adams Park. Away fans are accepted at the doorman's discretion. Food is usually served; there are three pool tables, video screens and a Juke Box. Real Ale is Benskins and possibly Martson's Pedigree. There is a Chip Shop about 300 metres from the Hour Glass on the corner of Mill End Road and Dashwood Avenue. (opposite direction to the ground). There are a few mobile food outlets on the final approach to the ground and most recently one on the immediate left on entry through the Adams Park gates. Nearer the town centre in High Street are both the local 'Spoons (The Falcon) and The Hobgoblin (Hobgoblin Brewery).

Admission prices from the Wycombe Official Site are Adults £17, Senior £14, Student £13 and U16's £10. However, a discount of £2 per ticket is available by booking in advance.

By Car, you have a choice of M5, M42 and M40 or going via Gloucester, Birdlip and then follow signs for Oxford then M40. Leave at Junction 4 (High Wycombe A4010). Entering Wycombe, continue on the A4010 following signs for Aylesbury. At a mini-roundabout turn left into Lane End Road (sign Wycombe FC). At mini-roundabout turn right into Hillbottom Road. Adams Park will be seen in front of you. There is a large (ish) Car Park at the ground (£3) otherwise; it may be possible to park on one of the many forecourts of the industrial units in Hillbottom Road. Getting out of the Club Car Park after the game is reputed to take quite a while. Distance is between 110 and 120 depending on route. Allow two and a half hours.
