The Madejski: Setting for Tuesday evening.
The Madejski: Setting for Tuesday evening.
This guide takes a look at Newcastle United’s next away game at Reading’s Madejski Stadium, originally scheduled for Saturday 9th January with a kick-off of 3pm but unfortunately had to be cancelled due to frozen conditions around the ground. You’ll be forgiven for thinking that the game was to be held in some Arctic tundra and not the leafy suburbs of royal Berkshire.

Being rescheduled now for Tuesday evening, it is far from ideal for any travelling fans who wish to make the journey and will now face the possibility of not arriving home until after 3am in the morning. I’m sure another logistical challenge wont dissuade the Toon Army though as we have backed the team all season and I can’t see that changing in the final weeks of the season, especially as the main objective of promotion has now been achieved which means we can now fully focus on capturing the Championship trophy, and 3 points down in Berkshire would all but guarantee a bit of silverware.

This guide takes a look at Newcastle United’s next away game at Reading’s Madejski Stadium, scheduled for Saturday 9th January with a kick-off of 3pm. Again its quite a long trip from the Toon, but I’m sure that wont put the dedicated Toon Army off or stop some of our more local fans from making a shorter trip.

We’ll set off for the 300 mile trip down the A1, meet up with M1 at Leeds and carry on south. Just keep following the M1 past Sheffield, Nottingham and Leicester until you hit J15A (A43 / Northampton / Oxford). Leave the motorway there and follow the A43 towards Oxford. If you keep folowing the signs for Oxford then you’ll eventually meet up with the M40. Head southbound on the M40 and leave at J9 (A34 Oxford / Newbury). Follow the A34 for around 30 miles until you meet the M4. You’ll join the M4 at J13, so you’ll need to head east towards London for 2 junctions, making sure you leave at J11 (A33 Reading). The whole Madejski complex is well signposted from the motorway, but just in case you miss the signs, you’lll be fine as long as you bear left! (more…)
