Directions to The Pavilion, Longford Lane, GL2 9EU
Due to the limited parking available at this site, we recommend that all teams arrive 5-10 minutes earlier than normal.
In the event the car park is full, we have been requested by local authorities and our local counsellors to avoid parking on the road in order to avoid congestion on Longford Lane. As an alternative, we have an agreement with Milestone School to use their car park free of charge. The school and car park is situated on Longford lane and is located approximately 50-100 metres away from the football club. It is immediately adjacent to the playing fields and can be seen from the car park. In order to assist you, it can be located using online search engines.
We apologise for any inconvenience but would appreciate and thank you for you cooperation in advance.
