    Hopefully everyone is now aware of where and when this match is being played, and as many of us as possible will try to attend to support our team and club during these difficult times. There are a number disruptions to the normal rail timetables for this date due to engineering works. Therefore I have run searches for various routes likely to be used by our supporters which are specific to this date and have given a summary below. I haven't got any more time to send on this right now, but will add any further information and attempt to answer any queries anyone might have.


    TRAINS

    From East/North Dulwich or Peckham Rye: Half hourly train service (leaves Peckham Rye at 15 & 45 past the hour), change at Tulse Hill for Wimbledon, then take the tram to Mitcham. Total journey time approx. 50 minutes. (Alternatively you could get off the train at Tulse Hill and take bus 201 to Mitcham.)

    From Denmark Hill: Take the Overground to Clapham Junction (quarter hourly service), change for Wimbledon (frequent trains) then take the tram to Mitcham. Journey time approx. 55 mins.

    From Elephant & Castle, Loughborough Junction, Herne Hill: Take the half hourly Thameslink train service (leaves Elephant at 19 & 49 past the hour) to Wimbledon, then take the tram to Mitcham. Total journey time 46 mins from Elephant. (Alternatively get off the train at Tooting and take bus 280 to the ground.)

    From stations on the New Cross Gate – Norwood Junction line: Half hourly train service to East Croydon, then tram to Mitcham. Journey time approx. 50 mins from NXG.

    From Gipsy Hill / Crystal Palace: Half hourly train service to East Croydon (leaves Gipsy Hill at 20 & 50 past the hour) then tram to Mitcham.

    N.B.
    There are no trains to Mitcham Junction from anywhere this Sunday due to engineering works:

    Planned engineering works | Thameslink

    It's rail replacement bus between Streatham and Sutton via Mitcham Junction on the Thamesline route, and between Streatham Common and Sutton via Mitcham Junction on the Southern route from Victoria.


    Anyone wishing to go to Mitcham Junction will have to get off the train at Streatham and take the rail replacement bus, which runs quarterhourly with a scheduled journey time of 21 minutes, then get the tram for one stop from Mitcham Junction to Mitcham.

    BUSES

    This is the link for the TFL map showing bus services around the ground:

    The closest stops to the ground are Wandle Road / Bishopsford Road on routes 118 and 280. Mitcham tram stop is maybe 500 yards from the ground.

    Bus 118 runs from Brixton via Streatham Hill to the ground.

    Bus 201 runs from Herne Hill via West Dulwich (Croxted Road / Thurlow Park Road) and Tulse Hill. Closest stops to the ground are in Morden Road near Mitcham Tram Stop.

    On Tuesday evening like all weekend days Southern run 3 evening peak time services out of London Bridge which call at
    Peckam Rye 17.30 18.00 and 18.29
    East Dulwich 17.32 18.02 and 18.31
    Take any of these to Mitcham Junction journey time 21 minutes then cross over to the tram line and take the tram (destination Wimbledon) 1 stop to Mitcham journey time 2 minutes and then 5 minute walk to the ground!

    darryl this wasn't supposed to happen

    There are also tram engineering works the weekend of the Dorking Wanderers match (Sat 31st) - no service Reeves Corner to Sandilands, which will affect anyone coming via East Croydon or from the Beckenham area. Replacement buses running.

    I was trying to take this one game at a time by starting this thread. When I began checking details this was going to be the first game at Tooting.

    We're playing Worthing next Sunday, 18th March, let's try to encourage as many people as possible to travel to that game with simple accurate information.

    There's already a separate thread for the League Cup Semi-final. If everyone is going to start talking about other games, when there are different timetable alterations, it's potentially going to get very confusing.

    Thanks. I am sure there is potential for fans of other clubs to come along on a Sunday . No Premiership games on either just a few Cup games

    SUNDAY:

    Annoyingly engineering works make this a trickier journey!

    Alt route for those able to travel from Loughborough Junction/Herne Hill/Tulse Hill/West Norwood/Streatham - Train to Tooting Station, then 280 to mitcham road (approx 25 mins).

    The Mitcham Junction journey plus tram is by far the quickest, and will hopefully be the key route for many!

    Any idea about parking?

    Out of town this weekend so I might drive in instead of faffing around on Trains and bus replacements.

    Loads of onsite parking available.

    This, Tooting, was first ground I ever went to in England when I lived in Mitcham and I thought all non league grounds were like this. Now I realise how naive! I do like it though and hope for a big home win against Worthing that I can watch.

    If the Maidstone experience is anything I go by, those of you who make it to these games will have bragging rights for years to come and get to look down your noses at new fans forever. Seriously though, hope you work your way through this and get back where you belong. Seems like everyone who knows about football is behind your struggle.

    I'm going to try and hotfoot it from Bristol direct to the game so I'll have a bag with a very loud cowbell inside. Probably a good idea to check the acoustics of the place :)

    Acoustics are okay. But just be warned it’s the coldest place in South London and the forecast is ominous.

    Thanks for this information - I'm commentating on the game this Sunday and this travel info is really helpful in allowing me to get there.
    I'm travelling from Victoria and trying to work out my route.
    From the information I've got TFL planner saying I should change at Clapham Junction, then go to Earlsfield station then get the tram through to Mitcham.
    Meanwhile google maps says I should get a train from Victoria to East Croydon and then get the tram to Mitcham.

    Apologies if I'm being dense but just trying to get my head around the best route - thanks in advance for all your help and advice.
    Best,
    Michael

    Earlsfield doesn't connect with the tramlink so you definitely don't want to go there! East Croydon then tram should be straightforward as long as you're on a fast train calling at Clapham Junction only,, before East Croydon. Get in the front carriage and the trams stop right outside the station. (Go up the ramp at the front of the platform, don't go up the stairs and out the side entrance.) Are you starting your journey from Victoria or are you coming from somewhere else first? Let me know and I might be able to suggest a more direct route bypassing Victoria.

    Might be quicker to go to Mitcham Junction from Victoria. Only one stop on the tram from there.

    Are you coming up from Worthing? If so train to east croydon and tram from there will be without doubt the quickest route.

    Hendon more likely :D

    My coach from Leeds (coming back from Ligue 1 commentary up north on the Sunday) arrives into Victoria coach station at 12.35pm - then I've got to get to Tooting.

    Yes starting my journey from Victoria coach station from Leeds (coming back from Ligue 1 commentary up north on the Sunday). I arrive at 12.35pm - then I've got to get to the ground. So fast train to East Croydon and take the front carriage then? Thanks for the help!

    Thank you Panther for tips I hope northern line and bus opinion will work with the snow.

    If the snow is heavy enough to derail that, the game will probably be off anyway!

    Zero disruption to roads and public transport in South London so far as I can see, and Tooting v Hendon has gone ahead, along with 6 of the other 10 matches in our division. Billericay off again!

    For those who can't make the game tomorrow there's going to be live commentary via this link:

    thisismccann4 on Mixlr

    Michael Mccann is doing it. Some of you may well know him. He's a great guy and excellent broadcaster / journo who has covered and followed a number of Dulwich over several years now. I think he's got someone from Football Beyond Borders on air with him too. Anyway, tune in, tweet him during the game etc.
