For all things Wealdstone FC

possibly THE VERY LAST TIME THAT Wealdstone will be playing in the leafy Brighton suburb of Whitehawk.
Let's hope so.
Although, to be fair, it is the birthplace of the Wealdstone Raider phenomenon which changed the life of one Stones supporter forever & subsequently garnered Wealdstone vast acres of publicity of one sort or another.
Such a shame that some of their Ultra fans proved themselves to be knobs of the highest order. (not forgetting their charming ex-chairman)

Brighton itself though is a fine destination for a pre-match celebration & the odd drink or two for the Wealdstone faithful.

Via Thameslink is the best deal at the moment. for example a day return from St Pancras with a railcard is only £8.05

BUS to near the ground (no spare seats on the coach this year)

Brighton Central Railway Station is situated around two and half miles away from the ground. Either get a taxi or bus up to the ground.

To take a bus; then from the Stance B stop at the railway station, take the Brighton and Hove Bus Company No 7 (towards Brighton Marina) or 27 (towards Saltdean) to Roedean Road (ask the driver to drop you off on this road near the Marina). After being dropped off, walk up Roedean Road to the traffic lights (keeping the gas pylon on your right) and turn left into Wilson Avenue. Then take the next right into a narrow road (signposted East Brighton Park/Camping). Follow the narrow road round, passing an entrance to a caravan park and the ground entrance, is around to the right. Please take care along this road as it has no footpath and at night it is unlit. A Bus Timetable can be downloaded from the Brighton & Hove Bus website.
