The journey , to Nuneaton last season was serenely uneventful, and even a pit stop at `the Pits’( Norton Keynes Services) failed to dent the happy state prevailing on the Flyer. 

Upon arrival  we were mingling happily with the locals with a total absence of angst, having first paid a visit to the memorial sited just outside the ground to honour fans, volunteers, officials and players who had passed away- a neat touch!


So.....prepare for almost any scenario to unravel as you arrive this time......

           





Stadium.  



Coombe Abbey is a modest stadium but with no segregation is quite a  congenial place to visit, at least it was last season as the fans were happy, as were the Nuneaton board I guess as they listened contentedly to the calming `kerching’ of the tills in the bar!


Sustenance!  

There was a good eatery on site, and hedgegrower’s  hot dog was a `seasons best’. As with other venues the burgers etc were rated lower in the estimation of many, but overall not a bad eatery at all.
