Westfield v Fisher
Saturday 5th August
3pm Kick Off
FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round
The ground is situated opposite Woking FC’s Kingfield Stadium, next to Woking Leisure Centre, midway between the town centre and Old Woking.
The A320 runs north from Guildford town centre and the A3 for 4.5 miles to the Turnoak roundabout in the residential outskirts of Woking, which is the junction with the A247 to Dorking. It’s the sixth roundabout from the Stoke traffic lights (A25), if you’re counting them! There you will need to turn right, signposted Old Woking & Leisure Centre.
There is an unusual junction (Give Way) just before the road bridge after 1/4 mile, and the approach road for the Leisure Centre is just on the left over the bridge.
Almost there – with Woking Football Ground on your right…
Turn into the Leisure Centre approach road, drive down for 200 yards and turn into the car park on your right. The grey building over on the right, just over the road bridge beyond the car park, is our facility.
The pedestrian entrance and turnstiles are half way along the front of that building.
Parking in the Leisure Centre (Woking Park) car park is only free for 2 hours, thereafter pay and display.
If you are travelling by train, there are frequent fast services from Waterloo to Woking, with a journey time of about 28 minutes (but check for weekend engineering works!). The ground is about 15 minutes’ walk from the railway station, which is in the town centre. Leave the station by the exit on platform 5 (away from the town centre). You then have a choice of two routes.
You can either follow the signposted route ahead of you down White Rose Lane, or turn immediately right along the station approach road to take the more direct route.
If you take the first route, go straight ahead across the car parking areas and along White Rose Lane, until you come to the pedestrian crossing. Go across Oriental Road and then, further on, cross over Heathside Road. Carry on down White Rose Lane until, about 75 yards past the turning for Ockenden Road, you reach the entrance to Woking Park on your right. Go in, turn left around the cricket pitch, and you will quickly notice a path leading to a small pond as part of a stream. Follow this path and it will lead you behind the Leisure Centre and high-level 3G pitches (with car park below). The ground is just beyond the car park, just stay on this path and it will take you around to the grey building, where the ground entrance and turnstiles are situated.
If you take the alternative route from the station, turn immediately right down the station approach road until you come to the pelican crossing. Cross over towards HM Coroner’s Court. Keeping the Court and the Police Station to your left, follow the A320 out of town towards Guildford. You will see the Sovereigns pub on the other side of the road further down. About 300 yards past the Police Station, turn left down Constitution Hill (past Southview Surgery). There is a 5-storey contemporary apartment block on the corner.
Some 75 yards further on, you will come to the gated entrance to Woking Park on your left. Turn in, continue down through the barrier and take the first path on your right. Follow this path all the way through the park, keeping the Swimming Pool to your left. When you arrive at the car park, follow the road through the car park and over the road bridge to the grey building on your right. The ground entrance and turnstiles can be found halfway along this building.
