Adams Park snowed in

There has been a heavy snowfall in Beechy Bucks and the following announcement has appeared on the Chairboys website:

'The club would like to advise supporters that conditions around Adams Park have become dangerous due to the recent fall of snow. We strongly advise that you do not try to reach the ground today on foot or by car.'

'Club staff will still be receiving telephone calls and emails and please keep checking for the latest news on road and pitch conditions ahead of Saturday's home game against Charlton Athletic.'

'Thank you for your patience and understanding in these testing times.'

Those who have been to the ground (as I did when we beat Arsenal in the women's league cup final) will know that it is up a steep-sided valley with one road in which goes through an industrial estate. Paid car parks are available along this road, but the problem is getting out afterwards.

One option is to park on nearby residential roads, but these are very steep. Whilst a rapid thaw is forecast and that, combined with undersoil heating beneath the pitch, should enable the game to go ahead, access may be a challenge.

According to their website there is a shuttle bus service from the town, which should help those going by train and could be used by people parking in the town. Additionally the site says that travellers going by Chiltern Rail are eligible for a 20% discount if they let the ticket person know that they are going go Adams Park. I will try on Saturday, snow permitting, if it works with a Senior Rail Card!
