Nearly time to start our plans folks.
First one for you,if heading to Worcestershire away in May,cheaper tickets on GWR services are nearly on offer.Give a week or so,don't forget,two singles are usually cheaper to purchase.
And,the game is in Whitsun week!

So the first county game draws ever closer.
Northampton....A train leaves London Euston on 5th April at 0849,arrives at Northampton at 0944,at moment using Virgin Trains website,the fare is £9 each way.
There are plenty of trains back.Dont forget,check to see if 2 singles are cheaper than a return.
The open return for this day,is £37.60 so a good saving.

Does anyone know anything about parking near the Worcestershire ground? I'm keen to avoid paying £10 per day to park at the ground, if possible, and I don't mind a walk if there's free street parking available within a decent radius.

From memory,and last time we played at New Road..if you drive past the ground (on left) there are plenty of residential roads just away from ground.
Malvern Road??
Not sure if restrictions are in place,but worth a look.

The T20 game at Cheltenham against Gloucestershire on July 25th is close to selling out. It is unusual for a Thursday game in being a 2.30 start.

Having attended the famous Ryan Higgins Tied match I can recommend Cheltenham heartily. A beautiful ground, great viewing, vocal yet friendly locals and a massive beer tent. What's not to like?
