Moors’ Mileage Set To Increase In 2024/25

We take a closer look at the mileage involved for Moors during 2024/25 as the Club prepares to make its longest ever journey to play an away game in the league…

It’s been confirmed that Graeme Lee’s squad will travel just over 150 miles more in completing their National League North fixtures next season than they did during the 2023/24 campaign.

Among those games will be a trip to Needham Market following their promotion – and records show that at almost 258 miles from The Brewery Field (or a 516-mile round trip), this is set to be the furthest Moors have ever travelled for a league game.

That journey to Suffolk eclipses the near 492 miles we’ll need to cover in travelling to and from our away game at Hereford during the 2024/25 season.

Oxford City’s relegation from the National League adds a 474-mile round trip to the schedule too, while Kidderminster Harriers’ return to our division means a 420-mile round trip.

Darlington remains our shortest journey of the season with Blackwell Meadows just under 19 miles away from The Brewery Field, while South Shields is just under 25 miles away from us.

Farsley Celtic and Scarborough Athletic are the only other two stadiums in the division which are less than 100 miles from The Brewery Field, both just under 74 miles away.

In total, it means that Moors players and supporters must travel some 163 miles more during 2024/25 than they did during 2023/24.
