It's Nuneaton On Tuesday Evening

Hereford Fans At Nuneaton In September 2013

Hereford FC travel to Nuneaton Borough for their first away game in the National North League on Tuesday evening.

Nuneaton only made it through to this season after their ground was sold to Port Vale chairman Norman Smurthwaite. 

But last Saturday they fielded a decent team, many of whom are reported to be full-time, and brought back a point from Ashton United despite being down to ten men for much of the game.

Longstanding Bulls fans will recall Nuneaton Borough from many decades ago in The Southern League.  Their history goes back 1889 when Nuneaton St Nicholas were formed.  They have since gone through several name changes and financial crisis before their liquidation in 2008 brought relegation to the Southern League Division One Midlands. 

Their present home is the Liberty Way Stadium, which has a capacity of 4500 of which just over 500 is seated.  Visiting fans, if segregated, are accommodated in the Loans To Go Stand, which is a covered terrace with room for 1000 spectators.  Admission is believed to be £12 for adults, £3 for U16 and free for U11.  A £2 premium is payable inside the stadium for seats (if available) in the Main Stand.

As regards pre-match refreshments, many supporters went to the next door rugby club.

However earlier this year the Rugby Club placed skips across one of the entrances to Liberty Way. Talks have recently taken place between the Rubgy and Football Clubs and the 'Skipgate' saga is understood to have been resolved.

If the Rugby Club isn't open or doesn't appeal then both The Acorn or The Crows Nest aren't too far away. 

There should be plenty of parking at the stadium.
