Moors’ Mileage Drops Slightly For 2023/24

Moors will cover a slightly lower number of miles in completing their National League North fixtures in 2023/24 than they did during the past campaign.

The reshuffle of the division following promotions and relegations has resulted in an overall travelling distance of just under 6,700 miles in round trips – a drop from just over 7,000 miles covered last term.

Moors have benefitted from the promotion of South Shields, whose stadium lies just less than 25 miles away from The Brewery Field, while Scunthorpe United’s Glanford Park is less than 115 miles.

However, we have gained another long trip in the shape of Bishop’s Stortford after the Hertfordshire outfit were placed into National League North – they play nearly 237 miles away from The Brewery Field.

Our longest journey of the season will once again be Hereford, with the journey to Edgar Street requiring a near 700-mile round trip and just a couple of miles further than when we play at Gloucester City.

And even with the arrival of South Shields, our shortest journey will remain the trip to face Darlington at Blackwell Meadows which is located just under 19 miles from Spennymoor.

It all means that the average round trip from ground-to-ground next season will stand at just over 291 miles, slightly lower than the 304 miles that it took during 2022/23.
