Rovers travel to Port Vale on Saturday 15th Oct for their first meeting of the season against the Valiants.
Vale Park is in the town of Burslem, one of the six towns which make up Stoke On Trent. The journey by road from Nailsworth is usually just over 2 hours (about 110 miles) Post Code for SAT NAV: ST6 1AW. There is a fair sized car park located outside the away end (Car Park C) which costs £5 (pay on the day), otherwise there is street parking, though this gets a bit limited as you get closer to the ground.

Rail travel would be to Stoke (4 miles away from Burslem) but you won’t be able to get back on the same day so unlikely to be a choice.
There is a bar just outside the away turnstiles (The Vale Social, also called Tommy Cheadles) which welcomes both home and away fans. Burslem centre is close by, but a number of the pubs don’t welcome away fans. However, The Bull in St Johns Square is recommended by travelling supporters and real ale fans. There are kiosks in all of the ground’s stands.
Tickets can be bought at the booth near the away end and cost;
