Tomorrow afternoon, Yeovil Town travel to play Frome Town in a pre-season friendly that will be played at their Badgers Hill ground, which is currently dubbed as the Special Effect Stadium. The match will be used as a Charity event to benefit local semi-professional footballer Jamie Mines, who suffered serious injuries following an electrical shock at work in December 2016 that saw him have to undergo leg and hands amputations.
The full address for those travelling for the 3.00p.m. kick-off is as follows:
Address: Frome Town FC, Special Effect Stadium, Badgers Hill, Berkley Road, Frome, Somerset, BA11 2EH.
To get to the ground, use the following directions. Those travelling from the Yeovil area should follow the first set of directions:
From Shepton / Glastonbury side of Town: Sainsbury's Superstore will be visible on your right hand side. Go straight over the next two roundabouts (the second one is a mini roundabout). Carry on that road and pass the Weaver pub on the left hand side just before you climb a slight hill. At the mini roundabout drop down the hill into the centre of Frome. Go through the traffic lights and follow that road to the top of the hill. At the very top, turn right. Go straight over the traffic lights at the Vinetree Pub cross road and Badgers Hill is at the top of the hill on the right hand side.
From Bath side of Town: as you pass the Texaco garage at Beckington (will be on your right side) on the Frome by-pass take the third exit at the next roundabout. At the following roundabout take your first exit left. Go straight over at the next roundabout (Coalway Lane Industrial Estate) and at the next roundabout take your first exit and within 100 yards take the first turning right. Continue on that road and you will pass Selwood School on your right and Frome Town AFC can be found 100 yards on your left hand side.
There is free parking at the stadium. Badgers Hill has a 'pub' style social club at the ground called the Venue and Sports Bar if you are after a pre or post-match pint.
