The Grecians at Walsall: A Supporter's Guide

Exeter City head up the M5 and M6 to the Banks`s Stadium this Saturday (formerly the Bescot) to face Walsall. Many fans will have gone past the stadium many times, and it is hardly miss able just off the M6, but for some including myself, it will be a first visit

The Ground:

The Banks`s Stadium was one of the first new grounds to be built in 1990. However, since then some redevelopment has taken place. The good sized two-tiered stand at one end of the ground was built in 2003, and towers over the other three sides, which are of the same moderate size.

Tickets:

The City following will be housed in a 2,000 seated stand behind one goal. There shouldn`t be any problems with the ticket allocation and City fans can buy their tickets on the day.

Adults 20
Under 18`s and Over 60s 14

Not exactly well priced in my opinion. I don`t believe under 18`s should have to pay much more than 10 at this level, and there is no student concession.


How to Get There:

Car:

No sat-nav needed for this one. It is a straight trip up the M5 from Exeter, and only a few miles on the M6 before you see the Banks` Stadium to your right. Hopefully, you won`t be scuppered by a one-way system once you exit the motorway.

By Train:

There is a railway station near to the ground, and is still called the Bescot Stadium Station. Those from Exeter can take a Cross-Country service to Birmingham New Street and then change for a local service.
