Last updated : 08 September 2002 By Rob Cooper
Reading take on Cambridge United at the U's Abbery Stadium on Tuesday night in the Worthington Cup First Round.

For those travelling by car:-

Take the M1 to junction 11. Get off here and turn right at the roundabout,, this is signposted Cambridge A1309. Keep going for approximately a mile and a half, passing three sets of traffic lights. At the fourth turn right into Long Road (signposted ring road).

Go straight on at the next set of traffic lights, also signposted ringroad, taking you into Queen Edith's way. Follow the 'ring road' signs for the next five roundabouts until you reach Newmarket Road.

About half a mile down the road the ground is located on the left.

Car Parking:-

The official club car park is of limited capacity and is always full (even if the ground isn't). Parking is available in the side streets. Alternatively there is off-road parking available off Coldhams Lane.

For those wishing to travel by train:-

For this weekday game taking the train is not advisable. Although the journey, via the London Underground, only takes two hours returning home could be difficult. Should you miss the 22.31 train from Cambridge you shan't get home until seven the next morning.

Also, bear in mind that the station is over two miles from the ground so you will face a race against time to get back.

Should you wish to brave the trains full details are available at
