If you're not making the most of a game on the coast and travelling on the day, the best way to arrive in Fleetwood is by taking the train from Scunthorpe to Blackpool North. There will be two train changes - at Manchester Picadilly and Preston - before arriving at the first destination. Full information can be seen at www.nationalrail.co.uk.
PUBS AND GRUB...
The club has a bar called Jim’s Sports Bar at its ground. It admits away fans, but gets very busy on matchdays so get there early. They have BT and Sky Sports on large televisions. If not, there are plenty of places in and around Fleetwood which has many establishments. The Highbury Chippy is only across the road, whilst there is a McDonald’s, Costa Coffee and Asda all in walking distance of the club.
