Travel advice for Saturday

Travel advice for Saturday

Allow plenty of time for your journey

As we've said elsewhere on the website this week, there are up to 1,000 Darlington fans making the trip across to Walsall for the big FA Cup tie in Saturday.

Our main advice is to allow plenty of time for your journey -- it's at least three hours by car -- especially as some roads may be subject to closure or delays in the Sheffield area because of flooding. 

There are various means of checking for delays on the motorway network:



The postcode for the ground is WS1 4SA -- it's next to junction 9 of the M6

Here are some directions and help from the Walsall website:



Also, as there could be up to 1,000 Darlington fans at the Banks's Stadium, give yourself plenty of time to enter the ground. Admission is £12 adults, £6 concessions, £15 family ticket.


Most of all, let's all enjoy the game, be great ambassadors for the club, and let's hope we're all celebrating at 5pm on Saturday!
