GARY Bowyer’s first full season in charge of Bradford City began in a modest manner against Cambridge United.

That one ended goalless at Valley Parade, but Bowyer and his boys will have the chance to get points on the board in their first away fixture this weekend.

The Bantams travel to the seaside for a match against Grimsby and fans are travelling in their droves, with City’s allocation sold out.

For those who are making the journey, we’ve got you covered.

From travel times and routes, to the best boozers – this guide will give you everything you need.

GROUND Venue: Blundell Park Capacity: 8,933 (all seated) Address: Blundell Park, Cleethorpes, DN35 7PZ Kick-Off: 1pm TICKETS City’s allocation of more than 1,800 has sold out.

Anyone who has purchased their ticket can collect from the ticket office at Valley Parade.

Fans will not be able to pay on the gate.

Away supporters tend to be accommodated in the covered corner of the Osmand Stand, just behind one of the goals.

TRAVEL The main concern for the big day is how to get there, how long it will take to get there, and where on earth you’re going to park.

Train: There’s two main options for this one, with New Clee being the closest station to the ground, but its services are infrequent and most will use Cleethorpes Railway Station.

The overall journey takes roughly two hours and 14 minutes.

As is usually the case, you’ll want to get to Leeds Railway Station first of all.

You’re aiming to get to Doncaster, and these trains are roughly every hour on a Saturday - the best option to get there in plenty of time is the 10.45am LNER service to London Kings Cross.

After around 31 minutes and two stops, you’ll get off at Doncaster Once there, you’ll want to get the Transpennine Express service to Cleethorpes (at 11.37am for this example), which come every hour.

This leg of the journey takes roughly one hour and 14 minutes, and after five stops you’ll get off at Cleethorpes Railway Station.

From there it’s around a 21-minute walk.

Walk out onto Station Road, then look ahead for Prince Road which you’ll stay on for around 0.2 miles.

Then turn right onto Grimsby Road, follow this for 0.7 miles until you see Neville Street where you’ll turn right and the ground is on your left.

A single adult ticket for the train journey costs £30.80.

By car: For this one, you’ll predominantly be using the M62 and M180.

The journey takes roughly between one hour and 25 minutes and two hours and 30 minutes, depending on traffic.

From the centre of Bradford, get onto the M62 eastbound at junction 26.

When the motorway forks off, keep right to stay on the M62.

Stay on there for nearly 30 miles, then at the 35-Langham junction use the left-hand lane and follow the signs for the M18 towards Scunthorpe/M180/Airport.

Then continue on the M18 for around six miles before taking the M180 exit towards Scunthorpe/Grimsby/Airport.

Stay on the M18 for roughly 25.7 miles and carry on for 13.1 miles as it becomes the A180.

Eventually you’ll come to three roundabouts - at the first take the third exit, then it’s the second exits at the final two.

You’ll then be on Cleethorpe Road/A180 which eventually turns into Grimsby Road.

After half a mile take a left onto Neville Street and the stadium is on your left.

PARKING There is no car parking at the ground, but there is street parking available.

Some of the suggested streets for this are Blundell Avenue, Tiverton Street and Lovett Street which are all just a short walk from the stadium.

PUBS Most of the best drinking holes are situated near the seafront and high street, which is right near the station so your best bet is to try one of these before heading to the game: The Swashbuckle Pub: Recommended specifically by Grimsby as the place for away fans to congregate, it has a four star rating from over 300 reviews. It’s on the corner of the high-street.

The Scratching Post: The best rated pub on the high street – according to Google Reviews – this one has outdoor seating.

Rutland Arms Old Mill Brewery: This is a 14-minute walk in the opposite direction to the high street and station. Reviews commend the staff and beer prices. Note: This sometimes reverts to a home fans only pub for high-profile games.

Blundell Park Hotel: By far the closest option, as it is right next to the ground, although it’s advised to get there early as it can get busy according to one source.
