Thanks gents, Basildon I think is roughly central Essex? I know Dagenham is about 45 minutes on the tube from waterloo so would leave brookwood no later than 12.30
You need to be off west ham no later than 1409 .

Pitsea station is nearest. North Benfleet innit. Plenty of trains and, having had a look at the map, there appears to be opportunities for parking nearish by.

London Fenchurch St 1230, 1253, 1300, 1323 and 1330. Ones leaving on the hour, and half hour, take 40 minutes, the others an hour.

£11.80 cheapest return but that's from Fenchurch St. From Aldershot it's £35 return and you need to leave at 1104 for a 1339 arrival and the usual joyful journey across London by tube.

Best book now before the prices go up...as they have a habit of doing.

It's not a huge ground either...they don't usually segregate but I think the local OB might want to for this one...

Even then, you're at the mercy of the National Rail Gods. Let us pray together for no delayed or cancelled services!

Hi all I'm Bowers volunteer photographer.

I was looking at Aldershot Town stuff ahead of the cup game and happened upon this. I thought I'd put myself on offer for any questions about travel etc if you still have them.

Hope anyone making the trip has a good one.

Game may well be switched to Sunday because they share with Hashtag United who have a home game against Heybridge Swifts on the 16th October. Hashtag seem to have paid for the 3G and upgrade to the ground, which now looks like this.

Just so you know Hashtag didn't pay for them. We'd have probably ended up with a yellow and blue stadium if they did 😂. They came after the renovations were done to ground share. The pitch change came first and then the stadium was refurbished during the season after. Still one end is very old fashioned too but you'll guess which one I mean if you're travelling down 😂.

Hi and thanks for posting.

Thinking of driving round for the game so could you advise on parking. Also do you know what the capacity is for the game which I assume isnt segregated ?

TIA
