DRFC Fans face almost 6000 miles on the road

DRFC Fans face almost 6000 miles on the road

Rovers fans can look forward to many hours on the motorway next season with a number of long trips to look forward to during the 2011/12 season.

If you are a Rovers fan travelling from the Keepmoat Stadium to the ground of Rovers opponents and back, then you can look forward to approximately 5827 miles on the road, if you go to all twenty-three away games.

The shortest trip is the South Yorkshire derby against Barnsley, with the fans travelling just 36 miles to get to Oakwell and back from the Keepmoat.

The fans longest trip of the season is the 464 mile round trip to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Rovers fans can look forward to sitting in their new 22,500 purpose built American Express community stadium rather than the uncovered running track at the Withdean Stadium when they last visited Brighton.

Rovers were Brighton`s last ever visitors to the clubs spiritual home the Goldstone Ground in 1998.

It will also be the first time Rovers have travelled to Upton Park to face West Ham United since a Second Division clash in 1957. So unless you are over a certain age, many fans will be making their first visit there with Rovers.

Rovers face a number of games south of Doncaster with five games in the midlands and ten games south of Watford.

*The mileage as been taken from a well-known Automobile Association website and is worked out from ground to ground, it includes a round trip and is rounded up to the nearest mile.

It amazes me in these times of such tight financial restraints that fans can find the money to go up and down the country, week in, week out. Some long trips down south next season.
