PHOTOS: Away Fans in the Stands – 26th March 2022

Time for photos of away fans in the stands, we will be taking a look at all the different ones at this week’s English football matches.

Thankfully we are seeing a less disrupted schedule for the EFL and Non League when it comes to Covid and the weather, so lots of travelling supporters are still able to attend fixtures up and down the country.

During a very difficult time for everyone, clubs have been welcoming back full crowds and get back to hearing some noise to make what football is all about.

The opening few weeks of the season had plenty of emotion for thousands of fans up and down the country as they returned to places that mean so much to them.

The away day experience is one of the very best parts of following your own team, and although your alarm may be set for times of the day that, frankly, should never be seen, you still excitedly cram onto coaches or overpriced trains, and the whole experience, regardless of result, is still one you’ll always remember.

As long as trains and buses are on time, the pre-match pint and grub is a vital part of the whole match day experience.

It may be tough to find a pub without hostile home fans, but it’s always possible to duck into a nice little ‘boozer’ for a bevvy before kick-off.

While much of the ‘away day’ experience takes place out of the stadium, the ground itself always plays a big part.

The days of old in which away fans were in roof-less terraces being battered by the elements are becoming a distant memory – albeit they are still a problem at some settings – with modern stadia now spacious and comfortable.

Right then, time to look at photos of those away ends…

The beckoning floodlights
still work their magic,
mid March’s cold chill,
scarf snug round the neck.
Blood pulses through arteries,
moving as it should. Heart lifts
with every step towards the stadium.

An old pal texts me from
another game up north.
The name rings a bell.
He’s at a club where my job
was to phone over a few pars
for the Saturday Pink
from a kiosk outside the ground.

Games that I didn’t give a toss about,
dictated to a bored copy taker,
wishing I was somewhere else,
roaring my own team on to promotion.
But then, I remember Larkin’s sigh
it wasn’t the place’s fault I didn’t care.
A goalless draw can happen anywhere.
