    Default Parking

    I've not been to a home game for a while but I found it really hard to get parked last night. I've never been to anywhere with so much parking in the immediate vicinity that is empty but you can't park there. Am I missing something? Tried the old multi storey at chalon way, then followed the stadium parking signs and came to a car park closed sign, so ended up paying 6 to park at the station. Where should I have parked? I actually found it easier to park at headingley the other week.

    If you go to Jackson Street early enough and park top end near the houses - there is an old metal bridge between houses and the start of industrial estate that leads onto the other industrial estate opposite Saints ground

    You can park on any council car park for nothing, Tontine is 1.50 i think. On another note, i’ve just got a parking fine for parking on Cineworld and going to watch a film there, even though i entered my registration in to their system, private parking companies are a bunch of cowboys, thankfully i kept my receipt so i can appeal and tell them to go themselves.

    It was a weird one last night, the usual places we park were all taken. I was expecting a big crowd, but it was lower than a few of the games this season.

    It's a good while since I lived in the town but I thought I'd gone to tontine (just over the railway bridge opposite the raven) but that one was shut.

    We're coming to tonight's game and still not sure wheres best to park. Where would you recommend? Ideally with a street name rather than a car park name as that'll make it easier to find.

    Tontine car park off Exchange Street is the closest council car park now, 1/1.50 to park in there and its just opposite where the old Chalon Way car park used to be.

    The other council car parks are free but some arent that big or are the other side of the town centre (Birchley street is massive but a bit of a walk).

    I usually park on Jackson street by the ambulance station and walk down from there, takes 10-15 minutes.

    Atmosphere was good SKY might have muffled the noise because there was a lot of abuse aimed at Kendall when he only refereed one side for large chunks of the game. Our fans really showed a lot of vocal support which helped our players when their backs were against the wall.

    When Passi scored and later Lomax scored that final try the West Stand went beserk and the players joined in as well.

    In the after match interviews with Wolfe and with Lomax, Jenna Brooks commented about how well the crowd had got behind the team
