About the Ground
Crewe make another away visit in the Johnstones Paint Trophy and next stop and a chance to get to either Cardiff or the Wembley is Chesterfield.
This will be Crewe's first visit in nearly four years; Crewe secured a 2-0 win in a League One fixture back in February 2003. Goals that day came from David Wright and Rodney Jack.
The ground it self has a capacity of 8,504 and the club have won approval to move to a new 11,000 ground in 2008/09. The away end is an open terrace (not many of them left) and for those who like to sit down can sit in a small area of the Main Stand.
Where to Drink
Two pubs stand out that are very close to the ground and on previous visits I highly recommend The Chesterfield Arms is just round the corner from the away end and with another pub next door The Industry both are ideal for the away supporter.
To the ground it is about a ten-minute walk from the station although saying that the trains are a long service taking up to two hours to get from Crewe and the return journey gets in well after midnight.
The official coach leaves at 16:15 cost £8 members + season ticket holders and £9 non-members.
Sandbach Travelling Alex Coach (John Ford) departs at 16.45 (Crewe), 17.00 (Sandbach) and priced at £8 approx.
Distance from Crewe to Chesterfield is 54 miles.
You need to enter the town from the A619 which takes you into the town upon entering the town you should be able to see the floodlights. Car parking is available around the town and around £2.40 for four hours.
For the Away fan
The away supporters are housed in the Cross Street Terrace that is uncovered where up to 1,400 supporters can be accommodated. Also supporters can sit down in the Main Stand (450 seats available) Inside the ground the normal run of the mill football food which includes the Chicken Balti Pie.
