Went to Oxford United this season to add another to the list, and also took a neutral trip to MK Dons during a work trip.
Up to 46/92 grounds now!

Fratton Park this season. We've barely played them in my away game travelling lifetime, something like three times in 20 odd years.

Also Cheltenham, Stevenage, Shrewsbury, Burton, and Accrington were new grounds for me this season - all teams that we've not played much in recent history (although we've played Cheltenham a few times in the last 10 years or so, not sure why I'd never done that one).

The Abbey, Cambridge, this season - to see us nab a jammy and arguably undeserved win.

Curzon Ashton....and Carlisle
It was Fleetwood in the JPT when we got thumped.

And on way back I heard we were almost signing Meppen-Walter and as I 100% disagree with signing people just out the jail door for killing people I pretty much decided on the coach trip home I'd stop going if we pushed on with signing him and did so about a week, 2 weeks later.

Now that I've had my break from the club and going back this season my away days will have died a death, was only a couple of seasons back I was a 20 away games a season fan, but a new home, rising costs and that same lack of passion I used to have will mean I may do at best 2 away trips next season.

It is amazing how quickly you can just get out of wanting to do away days

Some of these are pretty glamorous, my last new away ground was Nuneaton. Looking forward to hopefully visiting some of the London clubs this season which have never been attended in the past for some unknown reason, likes of Orient, Wimbledon etc.

Alfreton -
Well worth a visit for the muddy trail through the trees to get to the away turnstile and a sloped pitch to rival Underhill. No stands over 8ft tall and the strong wind meant it was impossible for the players to keep the ball in play. A classic 1-1 draw thanks to a last minute pen against us.

Which was my 78th of the current 92.
And the 114th different ground that I have seen Luton play at.

Mine was Morecambe too, last season.

the ground was crap, but there was a great pub not too far from it that was doing a beer festival, so we took to that quite well then went to Lancaster for the night, oh and we won 1-0 too, happy days

Mine was Dover Athletic, although I went to every away game this season and they were all new away grounds for me.

I am looking forward to revisiting many places next year and travelling to some new ones too.

In L1 it was Chesterfield.
In L2 it was Accrington when we won promotion 3 years ago - May 2012
My new ones this season should be Cambridge, Hartlepool, Morecambe, Mansfield, Barnet & Newport (did their old grounds), York (went there in the Conference though), Exeter and if they don't win their play off, Wycombe.

We lost, while the ground itself seems to be in the middle of nowhere. Decent chippy en route from train station to Roots Hall the best bit.
Morecambe and Luton the other two new grounds this season.

I don't go to many away matches and both that I went to last season I'd been to before. The last new ground I went to was Burton in 2014.
