Travel guide: Accrington Stanley

17 August 2017

Mansfield Town travel to Lancashire to face Accrington Stanley on Saturday (19 August, 3.00pm kick-off) and this is all you need to know ahead of the trip.

Accrington Stanley play at the Wham Stadium, which has a capacity of 5,057.

Both home and away fans can grab a pre-match drink in the Accrington Stanley Sports Bar, which is located in the Blackrock EMI stand.

The bar overlooks the pitch and offers a selection of lager, cider and soft drinks. However, if you are looking for an away fans' only pub, The Whittakers Arms is situated 200 yards away from the ground.

The postcode for the Wham Stadium is BB5 5BX, a 217-mile round trip from One Call Stadium. Parking at the stadium is limited to 300 spaces, so the majority of away fans tend to park in a matchday parking field which is next to the stadium, priced at £2.

The closest train station to the Wham Stadium is Accrington which is a 20-minute walk away. However, the journey to Accrington from Mansfield station will be around four hours 40 minutes and, depending on which service you choose, could include up to five changes.
