New grounds for me are Morecombe,Accrington Stanley,Burton,Stevenage.
I have done all 4 of the clubs in conference play offs so no one new there.
This will take me to 87 clubs leaving just Liverpool, Man.utd, Man.city,Aston Villa,Cardiff (may do this season if leicester get them in play offs as my mates can get tickets in the leicester end).
What about you? how many clubs you done and how many are new for you next season?

I'm looking forward to going to The New Meadow again. I went there earlier this season as part of a five day break with the other half. Very similar to Northampton & Col Ewe. The is a very good pub about five minutes walk from the ground called The Brooklands Hotel. Good food at least 3 local ales & a friendly pub. I spent a very drunken afternoon/evening with a crowd of Shrews fans that I had only met that day, although I had spoken to online. A good place for a weekend away!

I'm going to Morecambe for the last game at Christie Park, rather than suffer another stuffing & relegation "party" at Southampton.

Accrington, Burton, Bradford, Hereford, Stevenage & possibly Rotherham for new grounds for me. I think I worked it out that if I go to every new ground next season I will be upto 75/76 depending who comes up!

Quite a few new grounds for me to visit , but all will depend on what the club do on and of the pitch. I have come to the end of the line with paying good money to travel and watch a load of ****.

In a world of my own.
I have got 13 to go and I can wipe out six next season if I went which in fairness I probably wont do many aways next season due to family etc.

I've done 75 so far, Accrington, Morcambe, Hereford, Burton Albion, Aldershot and Stevenage await

I will try to do all 6 though were sure to get 1 or 2 of them on Tuesday night's near christmas

I think most of my mates will do Morcambe and Accrington, so as crap as it is supporting the Shrimpers at the mo at least we'll have a giggle next season. It's all too easy to claim to support West Ham, Chelsea, Spurs etc and show your loyalty by buying a club shirt and watching only the sky tv games in varsity - but next season the 300 that have a drunken trip to Burton Albion or Shrewsbury or the 200 on a cold Janaury night in Morcambe dressed in fancy dress as Jim Bowen they're real fans...we are the proper fans, and that is proper football, we may be crap but there "our" crap !!!!

I can't wait

As it stands, 8-10 for me depending on who wins the League 2 and Conference play-offs (done Oxford and Luton but not Rushden and York).

Was chatting to a couple of Stockport fans on the train back to Manchester last night and they said we need to be getting behind Rushden in the Conference play-offs as they do the best burgers they've ever tasted at a football ground.

89 of the current 92 for me, Cardiff, Morecambe and Burton to go and I am going to the latter next Saturday.

One of the plus points of going down is the trip to Accrington, believe it or not. A ground of non-league character but although their crowds are small, their support is brilliant.

I shan't bother going back to Shrewsbury, basically another Colchester, while Rotherham at the Don Valley, if they stay down, is a pretty awful place to watch football rather like the Withdean but at least with a roof and some atmosphere as all of the home fans sit in the same stand.

Chesterfield's new ground will be ready, presumably with better toilets than at Saltergate.
