A quick guide to visiting the Meadow

Accessed by Oteley Road the football ground is within easy access of the A5 and just a 30 minute walk from Shrewsbury Town Centre.

The Roland Wycherley Stand also includes 8 executive boxes, comfy seats for Sovereign Club members and sponsors and a family stand for the younger generation.
