Best away match:
Aylesbury United 1 Sutton United 4, Isthmian Premier Division, April 10th 1999. A classic end of season title decider, Aylesbury had been top most of the season, but the previous Monday we'd gone top following a 3-0 derby win against carshalton. My Dad and I arrived early for this, it was the first segregated Sutton game I'd ever been to. Over 2200 people attended and the away end was rammed. We went 2-0 up early on through an own goal and Nassim Akour, before Paul Harford was sent-off after 30 minutes. The ducks piled on the pressure, and after 60 minutes the score was 2-1. However the effort killed them and super Nas Akour scored 2 more to give a beautiful gloss to a beautiful day

Best away ground:
For facilities, Nene Park. For atmosphere and charm either Twerton Park, home of Bath City, or St. Georges Lane, former home of Worcester City

Most visited away ground:
A toss-up between Kingsmeadow, Earlsmead or The Camrose

Nene Park was proper weird when I went because that was when Kettering were there.

If there was a love button, I would have clicked it.......

It's almost like you want to be a Sutton fan ;)

Nah sorry pal I just can't do it. If I were to sum it up in an analogy it would be like forcing an xl bacon double cheeseburger from burger king down the throat of a vegan.

What's the best away game you've been to?
Either our 3-2 victory at Peterborough away in an FA Cup 3rd Round replay in 2013/14 season. At half-time we were 1-0 down and hadn't really created a lot. But by the 52nd minute we were 2-1 up thanks to a Michael Gash header and a Jack Byrne strike from the edge of the area. Then Lee Vaughan fouls Britt Assombalonga in the area and he scores the penalty to make it 2-2. Two minutes later though Joe Lolley scored from the edge of the area in his last game for us. Was a great game with 400 Harriers fans out singing our League 1 opponents throughout the whole game.

Or our 2-1 victory at Wrexham in the 2012/13 season. Vincent put us into the lead on 27 minutes after the ball fell to him 25 yards out. But Danny Wright equalised after 62 minutes, then Michael Gash scored an excellent lob over Chris Maxwell. The game was extra special after Mansfield had lost to Braintree 2-1 earlier in the day and the win put us top of the league but Mansfield had two left to play and us one. Obviously it didn't end well come the end of the season but it was still a great day.

Best away ground visited?
Sunderland in the fourth round of the FA Cup

And away ground most visited?
Wrexham been there a few times over the past few years and always enjoyed the games.

And absolute mare of a car park, too.

I think I spent more time trying to get out of that car park than watching football on that Good Friday afternoon.

At least you had parking right next to the ground.

The away end had a bar/cafeteria area with tv screens and seating all v posh, pity once Mr Griggs withdrew his cash the crashed and burned.
Bit of warning there for all teams with a sugar daddy down the leagues if they decide they've had enough.

My favourite away game was at West Ham in the FA Cup in the Laws/Bonetti era.
The original game got called of when we were half way there on the Saturday so it was played on the Tuesday night instead.
We scored early, West Ham equalised early, then for about the last hour we got absolutely pummelled but somehow held on for a replay, which felt like a win.
Afterwards Tony Coffee said he had seen nothing from Grimsby to make him worry about the replay, so we soundly beat them 3 - 0.

Best ground I suppose Anfield, been there twice supporting Town.

Most visited is Sheffield Utd and West Brom 3 times (amazingly we won 2 of them), then some I've been to twice, Wolves, Southend, Scunny, probably a few more that I can't remember.
