Important parking information ahead of cup trip to Chester-le-Street
Chester-le-Street Town have asked the club to make supporters aware of some important parking information ahead of Tuesday’s Durham Challenge Cup fixture.
Parking at Moor Park – which has a post code of DH2 3RW – is extremely restricted after Chester-le-Street installed a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) at the ground.
That means there will only be 20 parking spaces allotted to South Shields at the game, with passes having been handed out to players and committee members to use.
As this area is extremely tight, supporters are politely asked not to attempt to make the left turn from the main road into Moor Park, as there are no turnaround areas inside.
Chester-le-Street have also requested that supporters do not park at the nearby Chester Moor pub or the Church Mouse pub.
The home club will have an individual near the turn-off advising supporters where to go to park, which will mainly be up Waldridge Lane, which is on the opposite side of the dual carriageway.
To access Waldridge Lane, follow the A167 past the left turn-off to the ground, and instead turn right at the next roundabout. Follow the next road until you reach the next roundabout, where you should take another right to get onto Waldridge Lane, where parking is available.
The club very much appreciates your backing for the team and hopes to see you at the game at Moor Park.
