Cherries Away Days: Blackpool

Cherries Away Days: Blackpool

Ahead of AFC Bournemouth's trip to Blackpool for Saturday's Championship clash, AFCB Vital spoke to Jon from Vital Blackpool to give us a little preview of what to expect.

Any tips on getting to and from the ground?

There is parking all along the side of the ground, this is shared with Home Supporters and also people who are on days out to Blackpool.

Car parking prices are as below for most car parks and are pay and display.

Up to 3 hours Cars £5
Up to 18 hours Cars £7.50
Up to 24 hours Cars £10
Up to 48 hours Cars £12

If you arrive into Blackpool using Blackpool North Train Station then you will be in the Town centre. Best way to get to the ground would be walk down Talbot Road towards the Promenade, and then walk down the promenade towards the Manchester Pub. The football ground is about a five minute walk from there.

Blackpool South Train Station is the closest station to the Football Ground, and is by Waterloo Road and Seasiders Way. When Out of the train station on Waterloo Road, walk down the steps across the road, and you will be on the car park, directly facing Bloomfield Road, and will just then be a couple of minutes away.


Where are the best places for a pre-match drink for away supporters?

The Manchester pub I think usually has a lot of away fans in it. Wetherspoons down the road from this on Lytham road aswell. If arriving by train to Blackpool North, best bet would be to drink in the town centre. 2 Wetherspoons, Walkabout, Yates and many other bars in a short walk from each other.

Your ground has had a few redevelopments since AFC Bournemouth supporters last visited Bloomfield Road, what is your ground like for away fans?

Bournemouth fans will be housed in the East stand which was the stand that was previously a scaffolding stand. The stand is still a temporary stand with a semi permanent structure around it, so you now get a roof compared to last time. You will be housed in the northern section of this stand, Separate from the Blackpool Fans by the press.

For any Cherries supporters staying in Blackpool for a couple of days what's the one thing you would recommend to do?

Blackpool opened up for the season a couple of weeks ago now, and so the main attractions will now be open for the weekend trade. Blackpool Pleasure beach will be open, along with the tower.

Who is your player to watch?

Stephen Dobbie. We are hoping that he gets back to his best soon. Andy Keogh could also be a player to watch. Has started scoring goals for us since arriving on loan from Millwall.

Do you have any injury concerns ahead of the game?

No Injury Concerns, but 2 suspensions for our left back Jack Robinson and Right Back McMahon.

What are your predictions for this game and the remainder of the season?

1-1 Blackpool just cant seem to get that all important win at the minute. Hoping at the minute for Blackpool to avoid relegation.
