Match ticket details for this fixture can be found HERE.
Journey to the M25 motorway before turning off at Junction 29, following signs for the A127 to Southend. Continue through the lights and towards Southend town centre. At the next roundabout turn right (3rd turning), continuing on the A127. The ground is on the right just past the next traffic lights.
There is normally on-street parking spots available on the roads near to the away end at Southend. On top of that, there is usually some spaces at Southend High School For Boys (entrance on Prittlewell Road) for £5.00 each.
The closest station to the ground is Prittlewell Railway Station the Abellio Greater Anglia service, which is about a five minute walk away. It is served by trains from London Liverpool Street. As you exit the station turn right, you will then come to a crossroads with traffic lights. On your right is the ‘Fish House’, fish and chip shop. Pass this and turn right. Walk about 100 yards and the ground is tucked away on your left. Other stations in Southend include Southend Victoria (Abellio Greater Anglia), Southend Central (C2C) and Southend East (C2C).
The closest pub to the ground - The Spread Eagle - is normally for home fans only. The Blue Boar and The Plough have been designated 'away friendly' pubs in the past but this has changed before so it might be best to double check on the day if unsure. A bit further away is the 'The Bell', a large Toby Carvery, which you pass on your way into Southend on the A127. The town centre is around a twenty-minute walk away, where there are plenty of pubs. There are also a number of bars along the seafront. In terms of food, there is a popular fish & chip shop called 'The Fish House' located near to the main entrance of the stadium. There is also some other food outlets near to the ground available to use, including a pizza place.
