League One's furthest trips
Monday, 26th May 2014 16:55 by Col
With Fleetwood taking the last vacant place in League One for next season, we've got the A-Z out and worked out the mileage we're going to face next season with a trip to Gillingham being our longest trip.
As expected, Oldham will be the closest game and that will be the closest game between any two sides in League One next season such is the proximity between the two towns.
All mileages come via the RAC Route Planner, so you can take their word for it. The distances are the mileage between the two grounds.
Oldham Athletic 6
Bradford City 30
Preston North End 42
Sheffield United 48
Crewe Alexandra 53
Fleetwood Town 59
Port Vale 60
Doncaster Rovers 66
Scunthorpe United 80
Notts County 103
Peterborough United 146
Coventry City 152 *
MK Dons 172
Swindon Town 178
Bristol City 190
Leyton Orient 222
Colchester United 234
Yeovil Town 247
Crawley Town 258
* Assuming they're still at Northampton next season

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.
Manager interviews: Graham Barrow 1996-1999 by fitzochris
One name in Rochdale’s modern history that seems to be knocked more than most is that of Graham Barrow.
Matches of Yesteryear - Newport v U's 14/1/17 by wessex_exile
Ahead of tomorrow’s match at Stevenage, the Matches of Yesteryear random match selector has chosen one with some familiar faces in, one or two of whom we will see tomorrow, and one we probably won’t.
Matches of Yesteryear - Notts County v U's 21/3/98 by wessex_exile
And so we come to the end of 2019 – halfway through a season that promises much, so it seems appropriate that we dip into the 1997/98 season for this blog. May I take the opportunity to wish you all a very Healthy, Prosperous and most of all Happy New Year, starting of course with three points for the U’s against Crawley tomorrow.
