The Courtney Bus you need to get you to the game

Parking is a perennial issue for non league football clubs and none more so in Berkshire where match attendances regularly reach double figures.

It can mean at times that, for example it’s a bit of a tight squeeze to get your car in a decent spot at Larges Lane and despite and the extra parking at Hill Farm Lane, Stubbs Hill is still a country lane!

Therefore Football in Bracknell has teamed up with the town’s bus company – Courtney Buses – who have kindly come on board to support your favourite East Berkshire football website.

They have provided details on the best services to reach the ground you are headed to. And if you need to know anymore, just head over to their swish new website here.

So, here are the buses and bus stops you need to catch that’ll get you closest to the grounds around Bracknell.

Wokingham & Emmbrook (Larges Lane & Lowther Road, Wokingham)

Routes serving Lowther Road: 122, 129. For first team games see the Bracknell Town listing above.

Windsor and Virginia Water (Stag Meadow off St Leonards Road)

Routes serving the ground: 1016, 16A

Bus stops serving the ground: Stag Meadow

Notes: The 10 will get you in to Windsor from Bracknell and direct to the stop (Stag Meadow) outside the ground. However, it might be quicker to jump off at the Prince Albert Pub stop and walk the 10 minutes to the ground.

Why take the bus? You can’t argue that Windsor is the most scenic location on this list and well worth heading up early before the match. If you fancy a few pre match pints the 16 and 16A will help you get around town and all three routes stop outside the ground.
