A new feature at Vital Bristol Rovers, we call it the ‘Away Fans Guide’.

First off we caught up with Bournemouth Editor DJ.

Which pubs would you recommend to our fans to use during our visit to you?

The club now has its own bar dedicated to away fans called the Cherry Tree, this can be found on the same side of the ground as the ticket office nearest the temporary stand.

If not, the Queens Park which is a few minutes walk is a usual haunt for away fans.

Which pubs would you suggest we avoid for the duration of our visit?

The Wetherspoons pub in Boscombe will not let you in if you are wearing your colours.

What food do you serve at your ground? What is it like?

Traditional football food, pasties, sausage rolls, crisps and sweats. Pasties and sausage rolls are sometimes so hot they could be used as another energy source while other times I think they would be warmer if they were still defrosting.

What is your ground like?

The usual one tier, all seater and covered ground apart from one end which is the open temporary stand which will probably house Rovers fans if you intend to bring over 1,400.

Is the ground easy to find?

Yes, turn off the A338 when you see the football sign and drive straight into Kings Park.

Any suggestions of where the away fans can park?

There is a massive pay car park behind the away end.

What are the admission prices for away fans?

We have a new Gold, Silver and Bronze tiering system so I’m not entirely sure! I believe Rovers is a gold game, so it will be around £20.

How do you think you will fair this season?

Not a clue, we currently have 12 players, so will have to wait on who else we sign!

How well do you think Bristol Rovers will do this season?

Teams coming up from League Two normally do ok, flirt with the playoffs and finish mid-table, so i`d expect Rovers to do the same.

Who do you think are your key players this season?

There will be quite a lot of expectation on Darren Anderton, Neil Moss and new signing Jo Kuffour.

Finally Who do you think will win the league?

Could be anyone as Scunny, Colchester and Luton have previously proved but I think Forest will be too strong this year.

Many thanks DJ

  • dont like going to bournemouth, when ever i go we get stuffed, so i will not travel there anymore, i must be a jinx.

  • I usually go in the Queens Park when visiting Bournemouth but on my last visit I was in early hopeing to watch the live lunch time kick off on Sky. Bad news they don’t subscribe so its no good going in there if you want to watch any lunch time games.

  • also regarding the large car park behind the away end be prepared to sit in it for over an hour after thegame.

  • Mello Mello Bar in bournemouth welcomes all away fans. They all can wear their colours.
    Mello Mello Bar is few minutes walk from the AFC Bournemouth Ground on 677 Christchurch Road, BH7 6AA, 01202 729 038

  • Mello Mello Bar in Bournemouth, 677 Christchurch Road, BH7 6AA is the only place who lets all colours in for away fans. Cheapest food and drink in the whole area too.
