Gloucester City AFC play in the Premier division of the Southern League in England. The club was promoted as part of the Non-League reorganisation at the end of the 2003/04 season. Having competed in the Premier League for the whole of the 1990's, it's nice to be back among old friends! As the name suggests, the league covers the South of England (and also the Birmingham area). You can travel from Merthyr Tydfil (in Wales) to Kings Lynn (near The Wash), and Halesowen (in the Midlands) to Tiverton in the South-West plus several clubs on the fringe of the M25 in Hertfordshire.
The Tigers, as they are known, play their home games at Meadow Park in Hempsted. The ground was built in 1986 as part of the deal that saw Westbury Homes build the Swallow Park housing estate on the old stadium in Horton Road. The club purchased the surrounding football pitches from Fieldings in 1995 and renamed the whole area from Sudmeadow Road to Spinnaker Road 'Meadow Park', and called the football ground the 'City Stadium'. Currently the stadium capacity is 5000 (although it was pretty much full to bursting point when 4000 people saw the Trophy game against Dagenham & Redbridge) and there are 560 seats. One of the best things to come from Keith Gardners' chairmanship was putting a roof on the T-End, where the home fans watch the whole game from (they used to change ends at half time) and really get behind the team. It has also caused some controversy, away fans are now rarely welcomed (ask the fans of Burton Albion!)
The current manager is Tim Harris. Tim replaced previous boss Chris Burns in the January 2006 and is assisted by former Bristol Rovers striker David Mehew. You can read more about the management elsewhere on TR.

Directions to Meadow Park

If you've visited Meadow Park for the first time in recent years you may have struggled to find it's location behind a trading estate between the Docks and the urban village of Hempsted. However, after starting to build the City ring road in the 1960's the County Council have finally opened the missing link and the good news is that it has opened up a direct route from both north and south to the football ground.

From the South :
Leave the M5 Motorway at Junction 12 and follow the signs to Gloucester City Centre. You will be heading up the Quedgeley bypass (A38) now, go straight over the roundabout at Waterwells Park and head towards the Cole Avenue traffic lights. As of May 2007 you will now head straight on along the newly opened South West Bypass, across the canal, over the Hempsted Lane roundabout, another mile on over the Monkmeadow roundabout and then take the second left into Sudmeadow Road.

From the North, West & Wales :
Head into Gloucester via the Over Causeway from the A40 (it will be the first City Centre signpost if you are coming in from Wales or the Forest of Dean). As you approach Westgate Bridge you are greeted by the sight of the new Gloucester South West Bypass (which currently only goes as far as Hempsted). Turn right at the traffic lights and Castlemeads Way takes you directly over the flood plains and missing out the notorious Westgate Island and traffic hotspots around the Quay and the Docks. Once you've passed the Llanthony Road junction take the second road on the right (Sudmeadow Road) opposite the Llanthony Priory. Meadow Park is on the left.

From the East :
If you are coming from the East take the A40 to the West of Gloucester and follow the directions as if you were approaching from the west. Bear in mind that it is a good five mile drive from either M5 junction (11 or 11a) and that you will pass the Plock Court football pitches and continue onto a single carriadgeway section of the A40. Once you have crossed the River Severn turn left at the roundabout and follow the directions as above...
