Cherries Away Days: Norwich

Cherries Away Days: Norwich

Ahead of the AFC Bournemouth's trip to Norwich City on Saturday, the Cherries first trip to Norwich for a league meeting since 1960, AFCB Vital spoke to Nathan from Vital Norwich.

Any tips on getting to and from the ground?

The ground is a five minute walk from the Rail station, so that the easiest way to get here. If you're driving, there is an away fans NCB car park on Lower Clarence Rd, which is a 10 min walk from the stadium.

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

We don't really have have 'away' pubs as it's not that sort of place. Generally things are very friendly between the two sets of fans. I would say the closest thing to an away pub is 'The Compleat Angler' across the road from the rail station.

For any AFC Bournemouth supporters who haven't been before, what is your ground like for away fans?

The ground is great for away fans - you will be sitting in the Jarrold stand which is the newest stand, only ten years old. Great facilities and there is a good selection of food right outside the stand if you're peckish. Food and drinks inside are also good but probably a bit pricier.

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

Norwich is a lovely place. If you want pubs/clubs then go to Prince of Wales Rd for a 'carnage' style night out. If you want things a little quieter then go to an area called 'tombland' near the cathedral. Nice bars and good restaurants.

The Norfolk broads are nearby so you could hire yourself a day boat from Griffin lane.


Has your side changed much from last season?

The side and squad are mostly the same as last year which is helping a lot, so far. Expensive imports, Van Wolfswinkel and Fer have gone and been replaced by Lafferty and Mr Grabban. We've also brought in Gary O'Neil, Cameron Jerome and Carlos Cuellar. I think the sales and purchases have been sensible.

Who is your player to watch?

I know that you'll know all about Lewis Grabban, who has hit the ground running - a bargain thanks to that release clause, so I'll say Wes Hoolahan, skills a plenty and uses his left foot like a wand.

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

After three wins in a row, confidence is high and I would predict a 2 nil win for City - however, I don't underestimate the Cherries as they have a terrific manager and he has assembled a great side - if you do score, no doubt it'll be Callum Wilson!

I think and hope we'll be challenging for promotion - whether we get that prize is another matter entirely...



If we hear anything from Dorset Police ahead of the game we will update this article.
