Got 2 tickets today. There are 600 standing and a very small number of seated tickets left.

So on that basis we have already sold about 1400.

Never been before so are there nearby pubs and hows the parking situation?

Nearest boozer is The Arrow.

Don't park at the ground, made that mistake years ago and it took about 2 hours to get out of the car park.

The arrow is a good shout after away fans were stopped from entering the home beer tents.

Park at the ground but never go in the away fans car park....as stated it will take you forever to get out.

Have something green and white on the dash and park in the home car park...get out easier...

The Bell isn't bad but its mostly a Yeovil fans pub, the Airfield tavern is better than the Arrow but about 200 yards further walk but often a lot quieter than the Arrow.

The Arrow sometimes refuses away fans for bigger games but as far as I know Town are fine to use it pre game.

Parking on the roads close to the ground is resident only and you will get ticketed but there are some roads in the trading estate close to the ground which is fine to park on if you get there early.

As Flash says they give priority to home fans leaving the ground so park in the Yeovil fans parking as long as you arent wearing Swindon colours and you will get out in 15 mins or so after the game, they hold back away fans for nearly an hour when the car park is busy.

And if standing on the open terrace bring a waterproof and warm coat as its bloody cold and can get pretty wet even in light drizzle.

We normally sell about 1,200ish and they probably won't have more than 2,500 there as their support has gone to shit in the last 2 years.

Would be good to get more than 1,400 there, the open terrace holds 1,200 and the seats 400 (I think it was lowered a few years back for safety.

The most fans we have ever taken has been 1,545 in 2014 and 1,480 for the L&P away day in 2006.

Be good to sell out our allocation.

I thought the initial allocation was 1000 terrace and 400 seating tickets?

Yeovil haven't given us the full allocation, they are keeping 200 tickets back and we can request them if needed.

What Audrey is saying is that we have almost sold out of our initial allocation then.

Is it best to go via M5 or across country via Salisbury?
