    Okay, I'm moving to the UK in just over a month and trying to sort out what I need to do to get myself to a Spurs away game.

    I'll be up in Scotland first, and my idea is to get the train from Edinburgh (or Glasgow) to Wigan on the 24th of September, and meet my friend who will come up from London. We would then attempt to get a train to London after the game.

    My questions are pretty much this:

    How long does the train from Edinburgh to Wigan take, and how long does the train from London to Wigan take? (The New Zealand vs France Rugby World Cup game is on in the morning and ideally we'd be able to watch that before departing?)

    I will have all my luggage on me that I will have brought from New Zealand; would the Wigan train station have storage lockers I could put my bags in while the game is on?

    How far away from the train station in Wigan is the stadium, i.e. what is the latest we could get in to Wigan by to comfortably make it to the game?

    Is it worth staying a night in Wigan, or (as I suspect) would you want to get out of there quick smart?

    What are the train services after the game down to London like?

    How hard will getting tickets for this game be for someone with no membership (yet)?


    Thanks very much in advance.

    Ok bud so in answer to your questions.

    1. Tickets for this game are very easy, any issues let me know.
    2. Train from Glasgow will take approx 3.5 hours with a change probably Liverpool area.
    3. Train to London will take about 5 hours with a change in either Liverpool or Birmingham.
    4. You need to be there about an hour before kick off preferably.
    5. I don't believe Wigan station has storage lockers so that might be an issue. If I am going and I should be you can store them in my car.
    6. Essentially you must meet us in the marquee bar for a beer before the game but get the train home after and don stay the night as Wigan is a dive.

    Hope this helps dude. Enjoy

    So according to those sites, Glasgow -> Wigan 2 hrs 29 minutes, and London (Euston) -> Wigan 1 hr 55 minutes. Can those times be trusted?

    Is it Wigan North Western that I want to be going to?

    This is actually starting to sound almost feasible.

    They would be slower though, yeah? I'm more worried about the time it would take than the cost at the moment.

    Actually, what are flights like in to Wigan? Has it got an airport, or would you normally just fly in to Manchester?

    Ha ha! They've only recently learned the secret behind fire, mate.

    Liverpool and Manchester airports are about equidistant from Wigan (15-20miles); either'll do.

    Also, how much are match tickets likely to cost? Would they be in the same region as Wolves Away ~ 34 quid?
