DEAN COURT (FITNESS FIRST STADIUM)
A redeveloped site for the 21st century, with three separate similar stands and an open seated area behind south goal. 10k cap - up to 2000 travelling fans accomodated in the east stand. A no smoking zone too as per present Gov rules. Facing the setting sun may not be a problem. There is usually a very good atmosphere and not excessive, south coast derby business.
Get to the A338 for Bournemouth off A31. Follow this across the big Cooper Dean roundabout and flyover. Take next left signposted off Wessex Way on a slight rise. At the mini roundabout head into King's Park for ground at Dean Court. Big car-park behind stadium. Or Queen's Park area via subway.
Mainline station is a long way away. Local station is Pokesdown and a 15 min walk. Otherwise buses or taxi.
LAST THERE - 22/1/11
Loads of travelling fans in both parts of away section. Stayed dry on a bleak afternoon in more ways than one.
