Should we do the business tomorrow, we look forward to visiting your club in the next round. And I hope it will be a warmer welcome than we received from that 'orrible lot down the road'...

We probably had at least 50 for our visit to Concord on the opening day of the season. If we win tomorrow, cup fever is likely to grip the whole city which might mean that number would rise to around 70!

I would hope for 3 figures for a 4th Qualifier, but for now best we focus on tomorrow night.

Hi the nearest Railway station is Stanford-Le-Hope and is about a five min taxi ride from the ground - There is a small car park at the club but there is plenty of road parking around the ground

White Lion looks quite a homely alehouse (let the pictures roll in top right of the page). Half mile up the road from the ground..

Looks like a proper heritage job that one complete with grade 1 listed horse brasses.

The White Lion is a nice pub but right opposite the ground is The Bull - Can't post the link but just Google The Bull Corringham
Very Happy

Another Rocks fan here. The Bull is a good country pub with cask beer as well. Just a stroll through the churchyard to the ground.
Dont bother looking for East Thurrock on any map coz you wont find it.  East Thurrock is the area at the eastern end of the borough of Thurrock, the main towns being Corringham and Stanford le Hope.
Our ground is on the rural fringes of Corringham.
Like Rockshammer says, Stanford le Hope on the Fenchurch Street line is our nearest station. Its about a 2 mile stroll to our ground, but best bet is a taxi, or jump on a 100 bus which has a pretty frequent service.  
Book to Corringham Social Club Corner, once you get off, walk past the Social Club, cross over the road keeping the public car park on your right, follow Church Road for a couple of hundred yards and you will see the church and the Bull.
If your gagging for a decent pint when you get off the train, theres a decent real ale pub halfway up the hill in Stanford called the Rising Sun.
Our bar is friendly enough, but unfortunately has no cask beer.
Looking forward to a cracking cup tie, dont under estimate us by the way, over half our side have plenty of conference experience under their belts.

Rocky 11 great result today sets us up nicely for the Cup Tie - Bath seem a useful side but think we may narrowly shade this game!!!! COYR

I believe there are 30+ coming by coach. Add another 10 or so who will make their own way, plus perhaps 30 exiles and i stand by my original prediction of around 70.

I will expect the gate to be around the 350-400 mark.
