PARKING restrictions and the visit of a circus is likely to cause problems for football fans this afternoon (Saturday).
Stevenage FC’s game against Colchester United will be the first weekend home fixture to be affected by restrictions introduced at the Roaring Meg Retail Park.
Visitors will be limited to a 90 minute stay from 1pm, ahead of the 3pm kick off.
Those who exceed the time limit face a fine of up to £100.
The arrival of the circus at Fairlands Valley means that the free car park to the north of the Lamex Stadium will be closed for the League 1 fixture.

“Please note that with 211 spaces this is a smaller car park than Fairlands Valley so spaces will be on a first come first served basis. There is then a 10 minute walk to The Lamex Stadium along Monkswood Way.
This deal will apply for the next four home games versus Colchester, Brentford, Bournemouth and Sheffield United. The club would like to thank Stevenage Borough Council for its assistance with this matter.”
