Our first game of the season is a nice and easy one of us exiles to get to so hopefully we can start the campaign with a good turnout.

If you wish to join the group travelplease email Al on firstname.lastname@example.org before 12 noon on Friday the 17th of August.
If anyone fancies a spot of pre match breakfast some members will be tucking into the full english at the Parcel Yard Pub inside Kings Cross station from 10am.
Generally considered to be the best pub in Stevenage, (not that it has much competition) the North Herts CAMRA pub of the year 2006, 2007 and 2008 has 7 hand pumps serving an ever changing array of ‘real ales from near and far’. In addition to excellent beer they always have traditional perry or cider available, a dart board and a pool table. Hot food appears to only be served during the week but limited sandwiches and snacks should be available. It’s not much to look at from the outside but once inside this is a hidden gem of a pub that is well worth a visit!
Other Boozers and Food Outlets Worth a Visit
If you want to take in any pubs en route to the ground then another Weatherspoons boozer the Standard Bearer can be found at Unit 1 The Plaza, Dane Street, just over the road from the train station. Carrying on down London Road towards Broadhall way you will pass the Roaring Meg Harvester family pub/restaurant/crèche. Both ok if you’ve got a raging thirst on but we recommend heading directly to the Mutual Friend.
Given that Stevenage is easily accessible from London it is likely that folk will migrate to a suitable boozer in the Kings Cross/Euston area post match. The most likely venue is our old favourite the Bree Louise but specific info will be communicated nearer the time.

When Have We Played There Before?
This will be our 3rd visit to Stevenage. Having lost 2-1 at Broadhall Way in the conference in March 2005 we went down 1-0 in a close game near the end of last season as both teams chased the final play off spot.
Thankfully the conference play off final back in 2005 at the Britannia Stadium was a much happier affair for Carlisle when a Peter Murphy goal securing our return to League football!
