Getting there
By Car: (approx 67 miles from HW)
M40 west. Join A40 at Oxford. Follow A40 into and through Charlton Kings. At traffic lights where Cirencester Road joins from left, go straight on. At next set of lights, turn right into Hales Rd, keep on this road for 1.5 miles. After 1.0 miles, road bears round to right, then left. Turn left into Whaddon Road. Go straight over small roundabout, continue for 0.5 miles. Ground and car park on the right.
Train: Cheltenham Spa station is around 2 miles south west from Whaddon Road. Buses F and G go to the Town Centre and then the ground is an approx. ten minute walk. Connecting from High Wycombe is not that straight forward. Options are to go to London Marylebone, then via London Paddington and change at Swindon; or to go Birmingham Snow Hill and then Birmingham New Street to Cheltenham Spa. The latter is the faster option but allow at least three hours for travelling in this manner.

Hero for both sides - ANTON VIRCAVS
Well liked central defender at Wycombe who made over 200 appearances for The Wanderers between 1981 and 1986. Decided to move to Cheltenham Town following Wycombe's relegation from the Gola League where he quickly became a favourite with Robins fans. Martin O'Neill brought him back to Wycombe towards the end of the 1992/93 promotion campaign where he did enough to join in the 'going up' celebrations.
