We would urge supporters to use the car parks we have available for a charge of £5.00 at the ground and for £3.00 at the nearby St Mathews School, only 3 minutes’ walk of the ground. We have arranged with St Mathews to increase the area available to use for matchday parking and £3.00 for secure and monitored parking is very reasonable and helps us in our relationship with our Moston neighbours.
We are under a duty to ensure areas such as St Mary’s Road and the north of Nuthurst Road are not used by visitors to Broadhurst Park.
Supporters should be mindful that there is no parking on:
St Mary’s Road and the streets off St Mary’s Road;
