West Yorkshire Police welcome supporters from Grimsby to the forthcoming fixture.
We hope that visiting supporters attending enjoy their football and day out.
West Yorkshire Police will rigidly enforce the Traffic Commissioners Guidelines in respect of a designated Sporting event to any coach operator who knowingly flaunts these guidelines.
Coaches will not be allowed to stop within 10 miles of the Shay Stadium prior to 2 Hrs. before kick off.
We are in negotiation with the Licensee of The Old Post Office P.H., Winding Rd Halifax to be the preferred pub for Grimsby supporters to drink and the coaches will be allowed to drop off at this pub ONLY in the Town, before parking up at the ground.
If coaches drop off at any other venue then action against the driver and company may be taken, unless prior permission has been granted.
A parking area is set aside at the ground next to the away turnstiles for coaches/mini buses.
Post – match, coaches will be escorted away towards the Motorway network.
Preferred coach route is;-
M62 to Junction 24 signposted Huddersfield & Halifax (A629).
Upon exiting the motorway, Follow the A629 towards Halifax for approx. 3 miles. Once you pass the Hospital on your left, the ground is approx. half a mile further on the right hand side.
Directions to the Old Post Office P.H.
As above but coaches should turn Right before the ground down Shaw Hill, this will take them past the bottom end of the ground.
Follow this road over 2 mini roundabouts and through 2 sets of traffic lights before seeing the pub on the right. Coaches should then go directly in the reverse route then up Hunger Hill to the coach park.
Directions to the coach park from the Old Post Office:-
Once you have turned round, go back towards the ground passing through the 2 sets of traffic lights then over a mini roundabout. At the second mini roundabout turn Right up Hunger Hill. At the top just before the No Entry signs you will see the coach park on the left. Stewards will be on hand to guide coaches where to park.
Access for Town fans whether sitting or standing for the game will be by the Skircoat Road turnstiles only.
